Microsoft Bing appears to be selling TikTok video outcomes throughout the Bing search outcomes. In case you do a seek for some movies, Bing may add a field on the left facet by the video search outcomes field that claims “Quick movies of X” with a “from TikTok” button.
This was noticed by Frank Sandtmann who posted this GIF on Mastodon:
Once you click on on the field it takes you into Bing Search video outcomes for a question [Videos from TikTok].
I can replicate this for a lot of video queries in Bing search, so I do not suppose this can be a check.
I do not know if there may be some kind of paid placement for this or only a function the Bing search engineers discovered to be cool.
