Quick Add is a new feature that the Redmond-based software giant added to its email client, Windows Live Hotmail, feature that is powered by Microsoft’s decision engine Bing. What Quick Add does is allow you to share photos, images and other online content from Bing without ever leaving your Hotmail Inbox. Just open a new e-mail and take a look to the right – there you will find the Bing-powered Quick Add feature that will allow you to insert online content into your email.

"We announced in February that Windows Live was piloting a new feature unique to Hotmail we’re calling “quick add.”* Today, we’re happy to announce that Bing – Microsoft’s decision engine – has come to Windows Live Hotmail quick add, allowing you to “Bing and Decide” from the comfort of your inbox. With Hotmail’s quick add feature, now enhanced with Bing, you can easily search, find, and insert content from the web straight into your e-mail messages. With just one click you can add restaurant reviews, movie times, images, videos, maps and more,: the Windows Live Team explained.


Here is a step-by-step, detailed tutorial on how you can give this new feature a try:
1. Log into your Hotmail Account (click here).
2. Click New and start creating a new email message.
3. In the right-hand side of the screen you will notice Quick Add; select a category from the Quick Add pane.
4. In the Bing search box, type in your query.
5. Select a Bing search result that you would like to add to the email and click Insert.

Please note that Quick Add powered by Bing is available only in select languages and geographical locations: US, Canada, UK, Australia, India, China.
