This is what it looks like (I found a hotspot too). If you don’t see it like that: click the image.
- The new design features background rotating images with interactive “hotspots” embedded in them that direct users to vertical search results related to a particular image. Rotating here means the picture will be changed frequently by the team, refreshing does not give you a new one….I’ve tried!
- Hotspots “gleam” to the user when the page first loads then fade back into the image. When a user’s prompt discovers them within the image, textual details pertaining to the image appear, enabling the user to click through for a related search results page.
There’s also some links for even more discoveries, one of them is Take a tour of Live Search. Here you can explore the latest features of Live Search and get a “Tip of the Day”. More info can be found on the Live Search Team blog.
