Microsoft is finally making the version of Bing Chat we heard about back in February a reality. The latest version of Microsoft Edge (111.0.1661.41) includes the Bing Copoilot sidebar, which allows you to chat, generate AI content, and get insights on AI-powered topics.
This is the form of Bing Chat that was originally released by Microsoft. Since its launch, the chat portion of Bing Chat has been available through a waiting list that Microsoft says has amassed millions of registrations. However, Microsoft also talked about Bing Copilot, which would live in Edge’s sidebar and open up the ability to spawn emails, blog posts, and more, as well as provide context for any web page you’re on.
He To compose The tab is where you can generate emails, blog posts, and even idea lists. It offers various tones ranging from professional to fun, as well as three durations and four formats. Enter your request, select your parameters and generate your draft. However, it doesn’t seem like the length matters much; even with a Short in length, the AI spat out five or more paragraphs to most of the prompts it entered.
Once you’re done, you can regenerate the response to your request or copy it from the window. There is also a add to site below the text window, but I couldn’t find a use for it.
He perspectives The tab is contextual and pulls information from and around the website you are currently on. For example, on the Digital Trends home page, it extracted basic information about the website, where users are located, and how most visitors get to the website. However, it’s unclear where these analytics came from, other than a “data from: bing.com” disclaimer at the bottom of the Insights window.
not perfect. With our review of Hogwarts Legacy stopped, Copilot’s Q&A includes the question “Is Hogwarts Legacy a curse?”, which is a reserved engineering question based on a small stylized copy in the review. For most websites, this seems to be what Edge Copilot is doing. Extracts some key questions and points from the current page while also gathering context from the Internet.
Briefly using the Copilot, the best use I found for it was shopping. When you land on a product, Copilot can easily collect reviews, news articles, comparisons, and alternatives. It’s what you would find in a normal search, but you don’t have to do a separate search.
Of course, the Chat the tab is still present, too. Microsoft’s Bing Chat has been skewed after some wild responses, but the floodgates are slowly opening. You can use Bing Chat on Edge Copilot, including its new tone response types.
Microsoft continues to build on its AI strategy after a multi-billion dollar investment in OpenAI, the research group behind ChatGPT, earlier this year. The company is scheduled to hold a presentation on the future of AI in the workplace on March 16, where we hope to learn more about Bing Chat in Office apps, as well as the possibility of ChatGPT 4 providing AI-generated video. .
