Microsoft today released a remapped Video Search for Bing.com. With the latest update, Microsoft introduces a handful of new improvements and a new layout to the Video search section of Bing.com. Here’s what’s new:
We increased the size of the video thumbnail in our search results, giving an expanded view of the video and making it easier to find the video you want to watch.
More information before you watch
Additional information has been added to the video search page like channel, upload date, and view count.
“Hero” answers for songs
When you search for a song, we display an enlarged thumbnail image, or “hero”, for that song. The hero is chosen based on the top result and relevance to your search. The hero video will play in place or you can click through to the source of the video to watch it there.
Related searches are easier to explore
All of the related searches have been moved inline with your original search, so as you scroll through the page you’ll have some ideas of what to search for next to help refine your search results. When you hit the bottom of the page, you’ll get even more suggestions and the option to see more video search results. These updates improve touch-friendliness and scale better to tablets and other smaller screens.
The latest update should be available for most users throughout the world. If you’ve tried he new Bing Video Search, let us know what you think of the new redesign in the comment section below!
