Bing Video Updates Roll Out

We have recently been making some exciting improvements to Bing Video, these updates make it easier to scan, explore and discover videos.

Let’s have a look at what’s new:

Larger, More Informative Previews in the Results Page

One of the first things you will notice is the new video strip that appears in the results page. The update also introduces larger video previews, allowing you to more explore through the video results. Now with one glance you can scan through video results. Along with the large previews, the videos also received updated treatments, such as 16x9 images, embedded video length time stamps, and icons to help you quickly navigate the results.

Easily Scan Results (see it here)

The updates continue when you search on Bing.com/videos. We have made a significant investment in expanding our video coverage to provide you with as much relevant content as possible.

With our new grid layout, the results span as wide as your monitor will allow. And to help you scan through the videos, we’ve also increased the size of video thumbnail images.

Discovery of Related Content

To help you refine your search, we’ve added the most common related searches as a row of tabs on top of your search results, similar to our Bing Image Search. Why tabs? The tabs are designed to help you quickly find related video content. Your original query will be the first tab but you can watch related content without losing the results from your original search

Large Video Viewer and Filmstrip (see it here)

We’ve added a video filmstrip, so now after you are done watching the current video, you can see similar videos that you might find interesting in one easy-to-find strip at the top of the screen. You may also notice that we have enlarged the video playing area so you can watch the footage in the full glory that it was intended.

This release was the result of a lot of hard work (and slices of pizza), and we're still fine tuning so bear with us but we really hope you enjoy the features. And we’re not done!  As a matter of fact, we’ve got few features in the works which we’ll share in the coming months.
