Introducing the Bing Maps Preview app, exclusively on Windows 8.1.
Featuring stunning 3D world and city views, the Bing Maps Preview app puts you at the centre of a smart, local experience that helps you get things done. The app is optimised for touch with easy-to-use controls.
Need to get there on time? Personalised traffic alerts keep an eye on the traffic for your favourite routes and alert you when there are delays via live tiles and Windows notifications.
Looking for something local that you’ll love? Get user reviews and business hours, see photos, reserve a table and more. You can even view where you’re going before you get there with Streetside.
The Bing Maps Preview app installs as a separate app and will not replace the Maps app on your device.
This release contains the following new features:
• Get where you need to faster with the redesigned public transport – see easy-to-compare route options and info on public transport options and stops near you.
• Streetside is now even easier to use with better navigation and street labelling.
Some app features may not be available in some markets. Get the best experience with a fast Internet connection (≥10 Mbps)
