Bing is breaking out of the search box. This week we introduced a new, modern experience that reflects Bing’s increasingly important role as a service layer across Microsoft and beyond. With this redesign, people can now get things done faster, regardless of the device they are using. Continuing that trend, with the release of iOS 7 this week, you can now experience Bing search results in Siri . Bing search within Siri makes it easier than ever to find what you need by delivering various types of results – so you don’t have to go to your browser to look at the same list of results. For example, when you ask Siri a question, you will either see a specific answer or search results from Bing, including web links, related searches, images and video:
