Scrolling through one giant page of video results is a nice start, but we don’t stop there. Who wants to wait for a video to load before finding out if it’s worth watching? We don’t that’s why this update includes our exclusive Smart Motion Thumbnails that let you watch a preview of results without having to wait for the video to load. Simply tap a video result thumbnail with a play icon in the lower right hand corner, or mouse over the thumbnail image, to start the video preview. Tap again or mouse away to stop the preview video. Click on the text description to the right to go to the full video.

Pinch for Related Searches with Semantic Zoom

If the search results aren’t exactly what you were looking for, Bing has made finding related searches even easier. Just place two fingers on the search results screen and pinch to get related search queries. This feature is called Semantic Zoom and is also available for the web and image results.
