Bing Adds Video to Homepage

Bing is using videos on its homepage now, in place of photos. Not always, but sometimes.

The Bing homepage and its generally striking photos is possibly one of the most pleasing features of the search engine, at least for those who appreciate photography. Judging from today’s, this will only be enhanced by the new addition of video.

It shows a nice view of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

The first video is US-only, but Bing will be rolling out the video homepage in other markets in the next few months. It requires an HTML5-enabled browser.

In other search engine homepage news, Google took the big blue arrow pointing to Google+ off after a two-day run (at least in the US).
