To serve as a co-pilot of the web version, Microsoft India announced the preview release of new AI-powered Bing and Edge mobile apps on iOS and Android on Wednesday.
The users who have access to the preview can use the new Bing experience from the Microsoft Edge mobile app home page.
The new Bing app offers users the same experience as on a desktop.
Tapping the Bing icon at the bottom of the app takes users to a chat session where they can communicate, just like on a desktop.
“Ask simple or complex questions and get answers and quotes. Choose how you want your answers to appear: bullet points, text, or simplified answers. Explore the Bing chat experience to refine your question or compose an email, poem or list,” Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President & Consumer Chief Marketing Officer, Microsoft, wrote in a blog post.
With the introduction of Bing’s new mobile app, the tech giant has also added “voice search,” which offers more versatility in how users can issue prompts and receive responses from Bing.
Moreover, the company also created a new chat experience, introducing AI-powered Bing for Skype, to improve users’ social communication with their friends and family.
Fluent in more than 100 languages and able to translate between them, Bing can provide unique value to this global communication tool.
“The new Bing in Skype is available in preview worldwide today and can provide helpful, real-time answers to all your questions,” he added.
The company also said it plans to bring AI-powered Bing capabilities to other communication apps, such as Teams, in the future.
More than 1 million people have signed up to the waiting list to try the new ChatGPT-enabled Bing Search on desktops in just 48 hours, Microsoft said last week.
