Bing is working on a new product called Bing Now that could push them into the king of the mobile search engine world. When doing local searches for restaurants and bars any search engine can pull an address, reviews and images but to know if it’s a hopping (I know I just dated myself to 1990) place we would just have to go. With the Bing Now app you will be able to tell if the bar/restaurant has a high chatter level or isn’t busy at all.
“Bing Now’s solution would be to have the user with the app check into a location, in a manner that is not too different from other social networking apps, and the smartphone’s microphone will then capture samples of the sounds happening there. This would then see the Bing Now app make a decision as to whether the location boasted of a “low,” “normal,” or “high” level of sound, now how about that?” –http://www.ubergizmo.com
We all know Bing has been taking Google head on with their Bing it on campaign…could this give them that push they need? How useful do you think this app will be?
