WP8: Bing Search to feature Local Deals

Bing Local DealVoucherSettings

We have already seen that Bing Search in Windows Phone 8 will feature headlines, movies, top videos and local events.

Now a new set of screen shots show that Bing will also be offering local deals.  In the example above it is offered by Groupon, but on the desktop Bing aggregates deals from a number of coupon services.

The last screen shot shows that the service does not only use your location, but also details gathered from your Facebook and Windows Live account to find deals.

The reason these deals were not seen before is that they are likely a US-only feature for now.

Thanks Himanshu for the tip.
