Microsoft has rolled out an update to the image search components in its Bing search engine.
The company said that the search engine will sport a new interface and improved performance with the ability to instantly display image results.
According to Microsoft, the Bing UK overhaul will include a new interface designed to put a greater focus on the primary result for the search query. The larger primary image will be accompanied by a series of smaller results on the right-hand side of the page.
"The image detail page has been re-vamped to focus more on the main picture," Microsoft said in announcing the update.
"Distractions have been removed the background has been darkened to highlight the chosen image."
Other features include the option for full-screen browsing of image searches and the ability to navigate through results by way of keyboard arrow keys.
Additionally, Bing will look to speed up the process of viewing both the image results and the image sources. The engine will offer users faster returns on image search queries and an instant "snapshot" feature which will allow users to view which page the image result is being sourced from.
Microsoft's Bing overhaul comes on the heels of a similar image search update from Google. Google said that its update would include a new image search interface as well as the introduction of offline access to the Slides platform.
Bing continues to battle Google for share in the search market. Last month researchers estimated that Google still controls some two-thirds of the total market share.
