Bing's major revamp just launched earlier this month, but the search engine keeps evolving — today it's announced a partnership with Qwiki, a startup that machine-generates video presentations from various sources such as Wikipedia, maps, and real-time tweets. These presentations will now be viewable in-line as part of your Bing search results. Entries with relevant Qwiki videos will have a "Watch the Qwiki" link displayed below, and clicking this will expand the presentation to the full width of your search field (as seen on the right side of the picture above).
At first these will only be associated with Wikipedia pages, but Microsoft and Qwiki plan to expand the variety of search results that turn up the videos in future. Qwiki also opened up its Creator tools to the public today, allowing for self-assembled presentations, and an API for developers has been launched as well. We're not sure to what extent this will take off, nor can we attest to the quality of each Qwiki presentation, but the videos do at least seem to be embedded in an unobtrusive manner. One less reason for Bing users to go to YouTube? We'll see.
