Key notes

  • Microsoft's hotly-wanted feature on Bing, the chat mode, is getting a massive revamp.
  • After rolling out exclusively through the waitlist, any user can access the AI chatbot.
  • Not only that, but it also gets smarter and smarter.

It’s that time again. Microsoft, few months after unleashing ChatGPT-powered Bing to the world for the first time, has just announced a plethora of nice updates for the search engine. 

As noted from the company’s blog post, the desktop and mobile versions of Bing will become more feature-rich with the inclusion of videos, Knowledge Cards, graphs, improved formatting, and social sharing capabilities within the chat. 

And, chat history will now be available on both desktop and mobile, so you can effortlessly access recent activity by simply clicking on the clock-inspired icon.

Starting from now on, users like you can also take full advantage of the extended turn limits of 30 per conversation and 300 per day to engage in more extensive and engaging conversations within the platform.

The Bing app will now allow you to add a Bing Chat widget to your home screen, providing timely information and easy access to chat features. 

Moreover, you will appreciate the convenience of seamlessly continuing your conversations between desktop and mobile devices. By scanning a QR code, you can effortlessly transition from your desktop search to your mobile device, guaranteeing a consistent and uninterrupted experience.

As part of the ongoing collaboration between Microsoft and OpenAI, the company responsible for the highly sought-after AI tool, Bing has also been designated as the default search engine for ChatGPT.

Is there any other notable update coming to the ChatGPT-powered Bing?

The popularity of the new Bing mobile app continues to soar, with daily downloads witnessing an astonishing 8x increase since its launch. To further enhance the mobile experience, Microsoft is introducing a host of new features for the Bing, SwiftKey, Edge, and Skype apps.

Did we say SwiftKey? Yes, the AI-powered keyboard, is also receiving noteworthy updates.

The Compose feature within SwiftKey will draft messages based on user-defined parameters, taking into account subject matter, tone, format, and length. 

This feature aims to simplify administrative tasks, so you can delegate the heavy lifting to AI. Furthermore, SwiftKey will integrate a built-in translator, so you can communicate effortlessly with friends and family across language barriers.

Edge, Microsoft’s web browser, is not to be left behind in the AI revolution. 

With the introduction of contextual chat, you can ask Bing Chat questions related to the content they are viewing or request a summary of the page. The selected text actions feature in Edge allows you to gain deeper insights into any highlighted text by engaging in a conversation with Bing, complete with cited sources and summarized information.

Skype, the renowned communication platform, now incorporates AI-powered Bing in all group chats. By simply tagging @Bing, you can leverage Bing’s capabilities to generate lists of discussed options or generate new ideas within a group chat.

Not too long ago, the Redmond-based tech giant also announced that the waitlist for the Bing AI chatbot is gone and everyone can access it alongside more updates including the DALL-E-powered Bing Image Creator that supports 100 languages and the Actions feature that allow you to browse through the chat mode without switching tabs.
