Today we’re taking the wraps off a new set of features that will enhance your Bing for Mobile Browse (m.bing.com) experience. Now you can explore and watch the hottest videos, make faster decisions with the help of your Facebook friends and decide on the right movie for a night out:
“Liked Results”: Through our exclusive partnership with Facebook, earlier this year we rolled out “Liked Results” to the web. Now we’re bringing it to mobile browse.
Instantly see which stories, content and sites your Facebook friends have “liked,” from news stories, celebrities, movies, bands, brands and more. With the “thumbs up” from your friends you can jump right to the stuff that matters the most to you. Bing shows the faces of up to three of your friends that like a search result, offering a visual and virtual seal of approval from your trusted social network.
To get help from your Facebook friends, please visit the Settings page from the home page screen and use the secured authentication process to connect to Facebook.
Videos: We’ve brought together millions of videos from across the web – from Hulu, MSN, Youtube and a slew of other sources — for you to watch while on the go. Catch up on current news, check out your favorite sports videos, or see what the latest viral video your friends are all talking about. It’s all just a click away. Oh, and if you’re a sports lover, be sure to check out the special tabs for MLB, NBA, and NHL.
Movies: The age old question: what movie to watch tonight? That decision just got a lot easier, and more fun. We’ve put all the information you need to make that decision right at your fingertips. Quickly review user and critic ratings while you browse the list of currently playing movies, watch trailers, and find show times. You can even ask your Facebook friends what they thought of a movie, or if they want to join you, all from within Bing.
It’s all at your fingertips. Go to m.bing.com to try it out and let us know what you think.
