The update includes no less than 35,000 traffic cameras
Bing Maps is not as widely used as some other mapping services, such as Google Maps, for example, but Microsoft’s still investing a lot of resources and work into its own service, so new features arrive on a regular basis.
Today, for instance, the company has introduced traffic camera support for Bing Maps, making it possible to watch real-time images from cameras across 11 countries. Microsoft hasn’t specifically mentioned which are these 11 countries, but the United States is definitely among them.
To view real-time cameras on Bing Maps, click the Traffic button to see the traffic layer and zoom in until you see a small camera icon on the map. There’s an option that displays the recently viewed cameras, so you can always go back to one that you’ve previously loaded.
