Yoast To Add Live Indexing With Bing & Google

Yoast Bing Google Live Index

Joost de Valk announced at YoastCon that the popular WordPress plugin, Yoast SEO, will provide live indexing with both Google and Bing starting next month.

I'll be honest, I am a bit confused on how this will work with Google but I assume with Bing - they are working with their new submit URL API.

They explained on their blog "For Google the details on this are not entirely determined yet, but a Google Search Console account will probably be required."

So again, I suspect this is about submitting sitemaps with Google but what do I know?
