Now Bing can search for any object in an image.

While Search by Image could let you specify an image to be used as a search query, now users can search with in that image. Let’s say you like a bedside lamp in a bedroom picture, you may now conduct a search only for that lamp.

Whenever you will conduct an image search, you will see a magnifying glass in the top left, after clicking on an image result. This magnifying glass is the “visual search button”.

“We realize that many Bing image search users may be shopping for items they see in the image or a similar product. We automatically detect the shopping intent and, in addition to regular image search, we also run a product search to find matching products”
