Yahoo Search Direct offers quick search answers

Published on .

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Yahoo Search is launching a new feature that automatically populates search queries with a wide assortment of possible answers before those queries are completed.

Called Search Direct, the feature also will display real-time suggestions about news, maps, photos and ads, as well as website results, in a manner similar to Google Instant, which debuted last year. Yahoo said it plans to implement real-time results from Facebook and Twitter as well.

Yahoo will begin offering Search Direct in the U.S. next month, with an international rollout later in the year.
