Microsoft Bing team today announced new and improved experiences for researching homes, schools and doctors in the U.S. It brings together information curated from a variety of sources and services, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the big decisions right.
When you search for home,
Now, when you search for a house address on Bing on your mobile device, we provide an at-a-glance overview of the key information you need, from companies you know and love. You’ll see its location and pictures, price and house details, as well as the schools associated with that address and similar homes nearby. If you want to dive further, just click on any one of the site icons, including Zillow, Trulia and others.
When you search for school,
If you have kids, we don’t have to tell you that the quality and accessibility of schools near your new home can be just as important as the home itself. Found the perfect home on Bing? Click on one of the local schools in the answer to see key information. You’ll see the GreatSchools rating and community score at the top, and details including contact information, student-to-faculty ratios, enrollment, as well as rankings and academic indicators for high schools.
When you search for a doctor,
Finding the right doctor is another key part of your move. To make an informed call, you’ll want to investigate potential healthcare options yourself. Searching for a doctor will show clinic locations and contact information, as well as key information such as years of experience, average reviews and educational background. Trust is a top priority, so we have partnered with top companies in the health-professionals industry including LexisNexis, Doximity, Vitals and others to make sure we’re bringing you the right information. We’ve even confirmed thousands of phone numbers by actually calling them.
When you search for restaurants,
Search for restaurants and we’ll give you a carousel of options and information to help you find a spot. Think you’ve found one you like? Click and get all the info you need, including everything from Yelp reviews to links to book on Opentable.
