Qwiki videos to show up in Bing search results

Bing and Qwiki have formed a partnership where Qwiki’s short interactive videos will show up in some Bing search results.

The Qwikis — interactive presentations combining images, videos and audio — will be limited to Wikipedia entries in Bing search results to begin, according to the official Bing blog, which says deeper integration will come in the following months.

To interact with a Qwiki, according to the blog post, click on the play button under a Wikipedia entry in the Bing search results.

The folks at Qwiki also feature tools on their website so that anyone can create a Qwiki. Here’s a demo of how that works.

[This post has been updated to include more details of the partnership.]
