Microsoft has recently introduced exciting new features for the Bing AI chatbot, making it a more powerful tool for users. However, some of these features will only be accessible on Microsoft Edge, the company’s web browser. By leveraging the capabilities of Microsoft Edge, users can take full advantage of the enhanced functionalities offered by Bing’s AI chatbot.
One of the notable additions is the chat history feature, allowing users to pick up where they left off in their conversations with the AI chatbot. While this feature is yet to be implemented, Microsoft has assured users that it will be rolled out soon. Additionally, signing in to your Microsoft account enables you to access your search history, providing a seamless experience across devices.
Microsoft also plans to integrate third-party plug-ins into Bing AI, similar to the capabilities of ChatGPT. This expansion opens up a world of possibilities, allowing users to perform a wide range of tasks such as booking flights, making hotel reservations, shopping online, and more. Furthermore, developers can create plug-ins to integrate almost any service with Bing AI. Although an exact release date has not been provided, Microsoft has announced that third-party plug-ins are on the horizon, aligning with the developments in the ChatGPT framework.
The visual search capabilities of Bing AI have received an upgrade, now providing more visual answers in the form of videos, images, graphs, and charts. While visual results are not automatically generated for every query, users can prompt Bing AI specifically to provide visuals. What’s particularly impressive is the ability to generate images in over 100 languages using Microsoft’s Bing image creator, offering unique AI-generated visuals.
For users of the Microsoft Edge browser, Bing AI can be utilized alongside web browsing. The AI chatbot can be accessed in the browser’s sidebar, allowing users to browse websites while simultaneously asking questions. Additionally, Bing AI can explain highlighted text from webpages, and Microsoft has announced upcoming features to summarize lengthy websites and PDF documents. While these features are currently available on Microsoft Edge Copilot, further improvements can be expected.
Moreover, Bing’s AI chatbot on Microsoft Edge will soon have the capability to play movies on popular streaming platforms such as Netflix, Apple TV, HBO Max, and Disney Plus. Users are hopeful that Microsoft will expand its capabilities to include discovering new music and finding playlists on Spotify. Additionally, collaboration features are in the pipeline, enabling users to export and share content with friends or colleagues.
Although copying content directly to Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or other web pages is possible through the Add to site button under the Compose tab in Bing’s AI chatbot, this option is exclusively available on Microsoft Edge.
By using Bing’s AI chatbot on Microsoft Edge, users can elevate their browsing experience and take advantage of the innovative features Microsoft has introduced. With these recent developments, Bing AI is leading the way in making internet browsing more efficient and user-friendly.
