Travel

The Travel app is designed to help you research travel destinations and then book your trip once you’ve decided where to go. On the research front, the main Travel app screen is divided horizontally into four sections:

Today—The top travel destination of the day.

Featured Destination—Several tiles displaying travel destination chosen by the editors of Bing Travel. You can also click More to see an additional list of destinations.

Panoramas—360-degree images from various locations.

Articles—News articles about locations and travelling.

When you click a destination, the Travel app displays a screen devoted to that location (see Figure 7), which includes an overview, maps, weather, the recent currency exchange rate, photos and panoramas, lists of attractions, hotels, and restaurants, and travel guides.

Figure 7. Each destination screen offers lots of information of interest to potential travelers.

You can also see more destination and travel stories by right-clicking the screen and then clicking Destinations or Best of Web.

When you’re ready to book your trip, right-click the screen and then click Flights to book your airline tickets, and click Hotels to set up your accommodations.

Video

You use the Video app to play the digital videos that are on your PC, to purchase or rent movies, or to purchase TV show episodes. The main Video screen is divided into four sections:

My Videos—This section displays tiles for several of your videos. To see all your videos, click My Videos. To view a video, click it and the playback begins immediately. Move the mouse to display the playback controls (see Figure 8), which include the Pause/Play button, Fast Forward and Rewind buttons, and a scrubber to scroll through the video. You can also right-click the screen to see similar controls (Pause/Play, Previous, and Next) as well as a Repeat button that, when activated, starts playback from the beginning once the video ends.

Spotlight—This section offers previews of upcoming movies and TV shows. This section also includes a Now Playing tile that shows you what’s currently playing in the app.

Movies Store—This section offers several tiles for newly released movies. You can also click Movies Store to see a complete list of movies organized by various categories (Featured, New Releases, Top Selling, Genres, and Studios). Click a movie and then click Buy/Rent to purchase or rent the movie.

Television Store—This section offers several tiles for new TV shows. You can also click Television Store to see a complete list of TV shows organized by various categories (Featured, Last Night’s Shows, Free TV, Top Selling, Genres, and Networks). Click a show, display the show’s seasons, and then click a season. You can buy the entire season or click an episode and purchase just that episode.


Note

To purchase or rent movies or TV shows, you need to have enough Microsoft Points in your account. If you don’t have enough, the Video app will let you know and offer a Buy Points button that you can click to purchase more points. You can also press Windows Logo+I (or display the Charms menu and click Settings), click Account, and then click either Microsoft Points (to purchase points) or Redeem Code (if you have a Microsoft Points gift card).
