The beauty of modern smart technology is that users have a wide selection of choices when it comes to which software services they want to use on their devices, be it from Google, Apple, and more. As such, Microsoft has recently announced that it will be offering smartphone users the chance to sign up for the new Bing App, just some days after the big news regarding its infusion of Chat GPT with its software services.
Available for mobile devices, the Bing mobile app gives users a nifty experience with an efficient user interface. For example, tapping the Bing icon at the bottom will start up a chat session, where users can engage with simple or complex questions and receive answers and citations. Users can also choose how they want their query results displayed, such as through bullet points, text or simplified responses. As per a statement from Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President & Consumer Chief Marketing Officer:
“In this spirit of learning and continuing to build new capabilities, we’re excited to share today the preview release of the new Bing and Edge mobile apps. We’re beginning to roll out the incredible capabilities of the new Bing and Edge on your smartphone along with some exciting new features, such as voice input. In addition, we are creating a new chat experience, beginning with Skype, to enhance your social communications with your friends and family.”
The company also announced its AI-powered Bing for Skype feature, which can provide real-time answers to user queries. Microsoft adds that it envisions bringing it to other communications apps, such as Microsoft Teams. Users currently on the Bing preview experience will be able to access these features starting today, although a disclaimer from Microsoft does advice users that they might run into connectivity issues.
