Windows 8.1: Microsoft updates its travel search tools
Microsoft unveiled a slew of impending upgrades to the Windows 8 operating system, and some of those changes affect how travelers use Bing Search and the Bing Travel app (US only).
Glossing on the travel-related changes, Derrick Connell, who is a corporate vice president at Bing, says:
Imagine you’re planning a trip to Paris. Simply type the name of the city and you’ll immediately see beautiful, full-bleed images, upcoming events in the city, and popular attractions.
But you can also check the current weather and book a hotel in the Bing Travel app, without having to open it up and type “Paris” again.
