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.

Bing restaurants

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.

Hotels

The new features appear to work mostly on US-based hotels and restaurants at present.
