Bing is making it simpler for users to find local information and directions, thanks to the search engine's new feature dubbed Fact Answers.

These new facts, which are displayed at the top of the search page, aim to provide simple answers to searches for content like phone numbers for restaurants, hours of a local business or directions to a friend's house. It is important to note, however, that the feature hasn't fully rolled out to mobile yet. In fact, Bing's blog post states that the review and address answers are currently available on desktop only. Moreover, the directions feature is currently only available in the US, UK and France.

Users should also keep in mind that this is just the beginning for Fact Answers, with Bing saying that users should stay tuned for future updates.
