Bing announced they are about to launch a new image search interface and design, which is aimed at helping the searchers do more with image search than to just look at images.

Here is a snapshot of the new interface both on desktop and mobile:

Here is a list of what the new features include as told on the official blog:-

“After you scroll, where available, we will show you:

  • Places to buy the product in the image (beta). For some product images, we will show you where to buy the item. This feature is still in beta but is the first peek into the types of things we could enable our customers to do with image searches. We’re focused on more precisely detecting pages where you can purchase a product, adding more information for each source, and many other experience improvements. If you run a shopping site and you notice that your site isn’t surfacing or would like richer information to surface, please check out this post which details the site tags we support, how we may use the information in ranking, and additional opportunities to work together to help our customers find your site to complete their task.
  • Related searches based on the image to help you discover more images like the one you found.
  • Pinterest collections with this image to help you locate other images pinned by people who also loved and pinned this one. We’re starting with Pinterest but plan on expanding out to other sites over time.
  • More sizes of the image available from across the web.
  • Pages with this image where you may be able to find more information or take actions related to the image. If the image is of food, one of these pages might contain a recipe. If the image is a location, the page may have more travel information.”
