Microsoft’s Bing today announced the launch of new Visual Search capabilities for the Bing app on iOS and Android. The new capabilities build on what was introduced with Bing on the Web and now allows you to use your phone camera to learn more about your environment.

To get started with the new Visual Search feature all you need to do is click on the camera icon from within the Bing app on iOS or Android. Once you do that Bing will be able to identify the object and give you more information and additional links to explore. You can even use this feature to shop for fashion items and home furnishings.

The Bing team says that more capabilities will come to Visual Search in the coming months, so be sure to give your feedback to Microsoft. Visual Search integration is also coming to Microsoft Launcher on Android soon and Microsoft Edge for Android today, so there will definitely be more ways than one to enjoy this new experience.
