Microsoft announced today that it’s updated Bing to let users order in from restaurants and check out hotel info and reviews right from search results pages.
The update brings a new ‘order online’ button to restaurant listings, which takes users through to services like eat24 so they can place orders from their browser.
As for hotel searches, Bing now displays a carousel of photos when you enter queries like ‘hotels in Aspen’. Clicking on a hotel brings up more details including a map, review snippets, average room rates and links to book your stay.
The new features appear to work mostly on US-based hotels and restaurants at present.
