Bing is gearing up for the holiday weekend, launching Halloween-related Cortana searches and a spooky Bing map that includes locations for haunted houses throughout the US, UK and Canada.

 

For anyone who still doesn’t have their costume figured out, Bing recommends asking Cortana, “What should I wear for Halloween?”

Cortana also has a new “Guess the horror movie” game to keep you occupied while you’re waiting to go trick-or-treating — the phrase “guess the horror movie” prompts the quiz.

The Bing Maps team is getting in on the Halloween fun, as well, releasing a new spooky map with a “frighteningly fun color palette and a new set of Halloween-themed icons” that users can opt in to use. Haunted house locations are included on the US, UK and Canada versions of Bing’s Halloween map.

Bing says costume images from e-commerce sites that show up in searches will include its shopping cart badge to note how many sites have the costume for sale. Food images will also have the recipe badge to help users find recipes for specific Halloween treats.
