Bing users in search of their next Netflix binge may now have an easier time finding the perfect show. Microsoft announced a few updates to its search engine through a blog post, with one of them being entertainment search results showing content options from streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The update makes Bing smarter and better able to give you suggestions based on entertainment-related searches.
Bing will show up-to-date information about trending search topics like “fall 2017 TV premieres,” as well as service-specific topics like “trending movies on Netflix.” Results show up in a carousel at the top of the results page, separated from webpage links, much like visual results in Google’s search engine.
An image in the blog post shows that you can further filter search results by year, genre, and show rating.
Bing now also has a new “My Saves” section where you can save images and videos for later reference.
To save media to your Saves section, you’ll only need to hover over the image or video and press the small plus icon that appears.
Saves appears to be similar to a media-specific bookmark collection, with the option to make specific folders based on the types of media you want access to quickly (one folder in an image on the Bing blog is entirely dedicated to “favorite cat videos”).
