Today we released a new feature on MSN Search called MSN Shopping Instant Answers. MSN Search Instant Answers are designed to provide better access to highly-relevant information with immediate utility. At the end of the day, we hope we can connect people more quickly with the information that they need.

For relevant searches, the Shopping Instant Answer will provide the top three most popular products, attributes, and prices from the enormous MSN Shopping product catalog. From the answer you can also perform a side-by-side comparison of top products and get to our full product listing where rich shopping tools are available to help you easily find the product you’re looking for. 

Here are some examples of Shopping Answers:

We’re really excited about this feature, not just because we think it’s useful, but also because it represents the first of many scenarios on the way where search and shopping work better together. This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve had fun working on it, and we hope you find it useful. Please send us feedback and your ideas on how we can make it even better.

Below are some screenshots of the all new MSN Shopping Instant Answers on MSN Search.
