Users have been able to try the new Bing for a while. Microsoft’s search engine has been redesigned and now includes ChatGPT, the conversational AI powered by OpenAI. In this way, ahead of the rest, Microsoft has given us a great clue as to what most search engines, including Google, will aspire to.
Having artificial intelligence in our searches is very useful, since we will get detailed answers about what we want to look for so that anyone can understand. And it is that natural language is one of the virtues of ChatGPT.
A co-pilot always available while we sail
Microsoft has made it even easier for us with the release of this Microsoft Edge sidebar tool. And it is that with just one button we can access the new Bing to assist us while we browse the Internet.
The feature has been available for some time for users with the Canary version and Edge beta channels. However, it has not been until now when the company has decided to release the tool to the latest stable version of Microsoft Edge. The only thing you have to do to get it is to make sure that you have this browser in its latest version. You can check it in Settings > About Microsoft Edge and see if you are on version 111 or higher.
Having Bing in the Microsoft Edge sidebar can make things much easier for us (who would have thought a few years ago). Just press the Bing icon in the upper right corner and start using the tool.
As you can see, there are three main tabs: Chat, Compose, and Insights. In Chat you can interact with Bing as you normally do with the AI, while the ‘Compose’ tool allows you to indicate the guidelines to the artificial intelligence so that it writes you a paragraph, email, article and more. In addition, you can change the tone, going from professional to casual or informal with the push of a button.
However, perhaps the most interesting thing about this tool is its ability to assist us while we browse the net. And it is that we can ask information about the product that we are seeing on the screen, to help us with our curriculum, agenda, and much more. This way, Bing becomes a real ‘co-pilot’as they already consider it from Microsoft.
For now, the new Bing it is only accessible from Microsoft Edge, either from the official website or from the browser’s sidebar. In addition, we can also use it from a mobile if we have downloaded the Bing app.
