By February 10, 2017 June 26th, 2019 No Comments

Bing has released a new update for its iOS search app. The new version, v6.11, has been updated with a wide range of new video features, improved features for real estate searches, and alerts for malicious websites. Users will now be able to create their video lists using video search results. The new alert feature for malicious sites will further make it safer to search using the iOS app. The search engine has also addressed many bugs that used to hamper the proper display of answers in some cases.

Real Estate Search Feature

The Bing for iOS app also features a new real estate search feature in the v6.11. Users can view real estate listings against a zip code. It requires users to search using queries like “homes for sale + zip code.”

During initial tests, this zip code search feature seems to be working only for those zip codes with major populations. It doesn’t work for cities towns with smaller populations.

Bing hasn’t created much fuss about the new update, but it does provide some valuable new tools for Bing iOS search users. It will certainly improve user experience, making the app even better for its users.

New Features Summary

Bing for iOS app has been updated with the following new features:

  • Improved feature for creating video lists directly from music videos and search results for videos.
