Microsoft is preparing to roll out some useful AI tools this week focused on mobile and desktop users.
Bing from Microsoft has OpenAI’s own ChatGPT that supports it for all your potential queries. This week, the company is bringing some of its AI magic to Android and iOS, as mentioned in a blog post. For starters, Bing is set to introduce a new Bing Chat widget for a slew of AI features.
Microsoft states that users will be able to use this tool to type in their query or use the microphone icon for some hands-free use. Talking to Bing can come in many different ways, as users can decide whether they want their answer to be creative, balanced, or precise. Obviously, this is about how the AI chatbot will respond to your question so that you can receive exactly what you’re looking for.

Once you ask your question, Bing will display a suitable chat format between you in the search engine’s AI program. Just like Google’s Bard, if you’re not happy with the response you get, you can always have the AI ”think” of something else, or you can change the subject entirely.
Microsoft says users will soon be able to continue conversations they have with Bing from their phones on their desktop and vice versa.
Users can visit the support pages for Android and iOS (Opens in a new tab) To learn how to set it all up. Support for more countries and their languages will be rolled out soon as Microsoft says it has improved the overall quality of non-English conversations using Bing’s AI.
The company states that Android and iOS devices should start receiving this functionality next week.
The company is also iterating new Bing Chat AI features for Swiftkey on Android. Soon, users can use Switkey’s Compose feature to write texts or craft emails by setting the desired tone, format, and length, similar to the upcoming Magic Composer for Google Messages. Microsoft states that the AI software will do the “heavy lifting for you,” but you should still be careful and look out for any bugs.
This new creation functionality is available today, but Android and iOS users can expect to see it over the next couple of weeks.
While “tones” were shown off during initial new Swiftkey features, Microsoft states that there are two new styles of sound being rolled out: witty and funny. In addition, mobile users will find a new translator directly from their keyboard without having to go to the browser for a quick translation.
Microsoft Edge is also getting some AI tease with a new contextual chat feature so users can use Bing Chat’s AI to quickly summarize what an article is about. Users can also highlight a piece of text and ask Bing for more information about it if they’re not sure what something means. Microsoft plans to roll these features out worldwide “soon”.
Finally, Skype will receive some additional AI touches via Bing. Microsoft explains that users only need to type “Bing” into their group or individual chats to access its power. Users can ask Bing to collect and display the ideas you’ve all been talking about or to generate some ideas for a potential weekend getaway.
It is said that this feature will become available to everyone in the next few days.
