New in Bing Search Results: It’s Qwiki-pedia!

by , Comments

Bing’s search results now feature Qwikis – short, captioned videos that turn text on Wikipedia pages into words that are spoken by a robotic female voice, as you’re treated to a scrolling slideshow of related images, videos, and maps.

After you conduct a search, let’s say for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, look below the Wikipedia entry. There, you’ll see a play button next to a link to “Steve Ballmer - Watch the Qwiki”. Click on that and your interactive presentation begins.

Bing’s deal with the startup company will be initially limited to appearing beneath millions of Wikipedia results, but Bing promises “deeper integration” in coming months. The company also released a video demonstrating Qwiki on Bing, featuring Bing Director Stefan Weitz.

Bing described the addition of Qwikis as “a gateway for further exploration that offer a unique, visual experience to help you quickly get information and do more.”
