MacRumors reports that Microsoft’s Bing search engine app for iOS has an interesting new update that brings with it the ability to search the web using a photo that you’ve taken on your iPhone or iPad.
After applying the update, all you have to do is either choose a photo from your photo gallery or use the in-app camera feature to snap a picture, and Bing will search online for similar images to the one taken or selected.
You can also crop the photos to zoom in on a specific object that you want to search for, rather than just a whole big photo. Also, images that are returned to you by the search can be cropped within the app.
Aside from this new picture search function, the update also includes a new feature that will notify you when a movie that you’re interested in is available for streaming, as well as the addition of searches for bus routes and schedules in online maps.
