After being embroiled in a controversy with Google over the search domain, Microsoft’s Bing has added a new feature for its users.
Reportedly, a new location tool has been added by the search engine, which will help ascertain a where a person is at the moment.
“Bing now makes use of user location to change the way search results are ordered. This means if you search for something like a restaurant, it will guess that you're looking for a match nearby where the search is being made and will automatically serve up items that fall into that category,” said a company official.
The feature is a navigational feature that was launched by its arch rival Google, in the same month last year.
