Glenn Gabe, who is testing the beta version, is noted in SERoundtable with a screenshot of a visit to the Dick’s Sports website.

Google Debugs Using Bing
John Mueller wrote he often uses Bing to check if an issue he’s working through is a problem at Google, or a problem on the website in question. SEOs very frequently optimize for Google, given that’s where around 4/5 of the traffic comes from. Though search engines crawl and refresh at different rates, over time you can judge a website’s health by the behaviour of both search engines. If a site is tanking on Google but not so much tanking on Bing, the problem is likely a Googley issue. If the site is having problems on both search engines, the issue is likely a site quality or content clarity issue.
“I often use Bing when debugging. It shows if it’s just Google doing something weird, the site doing weird things, or if it changed over time (search engines index at different rates, faster/slower doesn’t matter). One of the simplest & fastest checks to do.” John Mueller
