Bing , Microsoft’s search engine has changed a lot over the past year, and one of the significant improvements is on the consumer side.Although you can always search the web, Bing is also integrated in Windows 10 Search. Click the start button and start typing. It will display the search results for your query in the panel in real time.
If this looks like a search result enclosed in a user interface layer, then it is not. Bing can now directly respond to any request. Some of the results may also help you directly open your Windows kernel settings. The results are shown in the form of cards with a lot of text from web pages, which makes it more interesting.Content
How Bing Search Helps Respond to Windows 10 Requests
How it works? I understand that Bing uses the Cognitive Toolkit , which not only enhances the relevance of the search, but also uses deep learning models to predict the search. Simply put, instead of throwing a bunch of links to users, it offers a video, a complete answer to a simple request, and even reveals details from a web page before they visit a web page.
Windows 10 Queries with Rich Experience
Bing is taking a tripartite approach right now to achieve this.
- Answers of the editors. These answers are handwritten by the Windows edition and are available in the official support documentation.
- Machine Learning Answers – Generated Algorithmically by Extracting Answers from Web Documents
- Video responses : Algorithmic analysis on the Internet and video.
Microsoft calls it Windows 10 Queries with rich experience , and also integrates it with Windows 10 settings. The results are incredibly useful as they offer steps and images for a clear understanding.
Bing Search Using Editorial Answers
Microsoft has a huge database of help files. Bing may uncover these handwritten answers by the Windows editors. The advantage of these results is that they often offer the ability to directly open Windows Preferences or any other panel on your computer, which can help users immediately start interacting.
Let’s say your search for “how to connect to Wi-Fi” from the search box. You will see the search result as shown above in the image. By clicking the Connect to Wi-Fi network button , you will open the WiFi settings section.
The same thing will happen when you search for this query on Bing.com .
You will see the search result as shown above in the image. By clicking the Connect to Wi-Fi network button , you will immediately open the “WiFi Settings” section on your computer.
This is pretty smart!
Compared to regular search results, these editorial answers differ in that they offer a wealth of experience . Since Bing and Microsoft Help are owned by the same company, it can pick up the right images and clearly show the steps to achieve the best results. Often the answers are short, and consumers get the opportunity to quickly solve their problem.
Bing Search Results Using Machine-Received Answers
In addition to Microsoft support documents, there are many Windows websites and blogs that do the same, but in their own way. Bing is a search engine, and it can get answers from these pages if they fit well. They call it the machine answer. The top result partially displays the steps inside the page. The advantage is that consumers gain confidence in the results and open a page for more details.
While Microsft has long-format answers, when machine-generated answers are ranked higher, pages from websites come to the fore. It also depends on what you are looking for. In most cases, these answers are for a difficult situation that involves several steps. You can always click on the link below, which will show the full page of Bing search results.
Bing results using video responses
Over the past few years, videos have become a great help, especially thanks to the wide bandwidth available at a lower price. The video ensures that you can see what happens without doing anything. By watching the video, you can start following the instructions step by step. Bing oversees these videos and shows them on top.
Sometimes videos can be played directly in the results, but mostly they open on YouTube or any other video source.
Bing search results become even more interesting when you search for it on the Internet. Results offer filters on top for a general query of popular options. Therefore, when you search for how to change the Wi-Fi password for Windows 10 , you will see filters, for example, how to configure the Linksys router password, how to reset the wireless router, how to set your Internet password, etc. to.
This is a smart approach to accurately capture the target set of consumers and refine the results for them.
I love how Microsoft adopted a strategy to help end users solve their problems with direct help and overt answers. Built-in Bing integration through Cortana allows anyone to start searching immediately. It can also be integrated into the settings search bar. I am sure that many people are looking there.
I would like to find a search-based virtual assistant from Microsoft. My idea is that an assistant can help consumers complete the steps one by one using an editorial as a source.
While Bing is not a favorite search engine for consumers, OS integration has made sense. I would like to see if this integration can be used further than just access to the Start menu.
