Microsoft's Bing search engine has picked up some extra radio search smarts thanks to a new partnership with TuneIn Radio. Building on Bing's music search, the search engine can now clearly surface the most popular online radio stations with quick links to listen to each on both PC and mobile.

From the Bing team:

Search for 'online radio stations' to see a sample of some of the most searched for radio stations. Click the play button to listen to a radio station from the web. On a PC you'll notice a smaller tab redirecting you to TuneIn's website, allowing you to listen to music from the radio station while you continue to search or move on to another task. On mobile, TuneIn's app will be opened right to the station you searched for.

It's a relatively small tweak, but one that makes Bing even more useful as it continues to add little updates here and there. If you're a big fan of online radio, you should be able to give the new feature a shot right now.
