Microsoft has launched new carousel lists when searching on Bing for fall's latest entertainment releases in TV, movies, and books. They also include some predictions on which TV shows will win at this weekend's Emmy awards.
In a blog post, Microsoft stated:
Search Bing for 'Fall TV shows' to see a list of this season's lineup. Use the filters within the carousel to narrow your search by month of release, genre, or new versus returning shows.
You can also see a carousel list when searching for "cancelled TV shows", just in case you are not sure if your favorite will be back this fall. Microsoft has also set up similar lists when searching for "fall movies" on Bing and it is using its prediction engine to create a list of what it thinks will be the top best-selling books this season:
To help, we've enlisted our Bing Predicts technology that factors in the search, web and social buzz around the books, early reviews and more. From there, we used the data to showcase the top 50 books predicted to be the best sellers this autumn. Just search for 'fall books' to see which made Bing's top list. From there you can use the filters in the carousel to search by release date and by paperback or hardback.
The prediction engine is going to try to pick the winners of this year's Emmy awards. Bing users can type in "2016 Primetime Emmy nominations" to see the engine's picks:
For example, Game of Thrones is likely to take home an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series for the second year in a row, and Veep is also predicted to repeat its Outstanding Comedy Series win.
Finally, Bing will try to predict who will win and who will be eliminated in two reality shows this year: Dancing With The Stars and The Voice:
DWTS just started its 23rd season, and Bing already has its first predictions: Ryan Lochte is safe while former Texas Governor Rick Perry is in danger of elimination. For more predictions, check bing.com. The Voice returns on September 19th and predictions will be available after the first episode.
