Bing’s new feature reveals the story behind the homepage image

One of the more memorable features of Microsoft’s Bing homepage is the high quality images that are constantly incorporated into the page’s design. In response to the success of these images, Microsoft has begun a rollout of a new feature which celebrates these images and provides more information on where they come from and how users can find out more information.

“Now you can simply scroll down to get the full story behind the Bing image of the day,” the post on the official Bing blog explains. “In the Image of the Day section, you’ll find the expanded story behind each image, including a mini-map or a quick fact. We’ve made it easier to find the options to share, save, or, when possible, download the image to use as your desktop wallpaper. Scroll a little more and you’ll see a gallery of our recent homepages to catch up on any you may have missed.”

This feature is now live in the U.S.A. but will soon launch in the U.K., Canada, Australia, India, Germany, France, Brazil, and Japan later this month and is apparently one of the first big changes coming to Bing in 2017. Do you like this feature? Let us know in the comments.
