Bing Uses "Bubbles" to Simplify Image Search

Bing is attempting to remedy “fat finger syndrome” by adding “intelligent groups” and smart suggestions to its image search features.

To combat the likelihood of misspellings on small mobile screens, Bing has introduced helpful “Bubbles” to its image search feature. The bubbles divide search terms into easily deleted segments like “white” and “tulips,” offering image suggestions for both or either. Tapping any of the bubbles broadens search criteria. Bing will also provide bubbles featuring related terms beneath the search bar, so that searches can be more easily broadened or refined.

The new search feature is currently only available in English across Android and iPhone. Bing hopes to further improve the service by taking user suggestions via Twitter using the hashtag #TypeLessSearchFaster.
