How to get a license for stock quotes and other inline answers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    how can we get a special license for stock quotes and other inline answers for the Windows Live Search API?

    I have written several times to api_tou@microsoft.com and I have never got a useful answer.

    Thank you.

  • During the beta, for contractual reasons all access to instant answers except Encarta and to the Video sourcetype is based on invite only.

     

    We are actively working to add more answers available to the general public, but cannot commit to which ones and to a timeframe.

  • Here is the text of the documentation, Live Search Version 2.0:

     

    InstantAnswer types include Encarta, Finance, Music, Sports, Weather, and Movie ShowTimes.

    Reserved for users having an explicit contract with Microsoft. For more information, please contact api_tou@microsoft.com.
