Microsoft has allowed over a million people to take advantage of its AI-powered chatbot, Bing, since its launch earlier this month. Millions more are still waiting in the wings for their chance to use it. Bing is currently available solely from Edge’s desktop browser. Microsoft is extending its access across multiple products, services, and devices.
From today onwards, those with Microsoft accounts can take advantage of the chatbot on both Edge and Bing Mobile applications. It is available on Android and iOS. To begin a chat session, hit the Bing button at the bottom of your mobile app home page or initiate it from your homepage in Edge.
You can now also use the chatbot on Skype. Whether you’re having a one-on-one conversation or chatting with a group, the possibilities are endless. It can help plan trips and settle debates, all while translating information between more than 100 languages.
Additionally, Microsoft has introduced voice commands for both mobile and desktop applications to make the chatbot more accessible. This could be the last straw for Cortana as it slowly fades from prominence after years of use. The potential of this chatbot is immense. We’re just at the beginning stages of unlocking its capabilities.
Microsoft said that it could possibly expand the chatbot to additional applications, like Teams. Despite Bing’s hopeful outlook, they are carefully refining their program. The bot has met with a few obstacles since its public release.
