Bing Search has added a new feature called “Recent Chat Topics,” displayed at the top of the search results page for users who have recently used Bing Chat. It shows a Bing icon with the query inside a bubble, indicating recent chat conversations or queries related to the user’s activity in Bing Chat.
By the looks of it, this feature seems to be designed to help users quickly access and revisit recent chat conversations or queries they have made on Bing Chat.
@rustybrick Bing search now suggest recent chats directly in search for similar topics. @MParakhin is that something that will stay? I like it very much. To continue the chat on the same topic would be cool. pic.twitter.com/KrzvMLRFmN

It’s sure that it offers convenience by allowing users to access their recent chat topics seamlessly. It enhances relevance by providing contextually relevant search results based on recent chat interactions, facilitating personalization, and serving as a useful memory aid.
This feature may raise privacy concerns, potentially exposing sensitive chat conversations to others with access to search history. It could be considered intrusive, pose data security risks and clutter search results. It may also have limited value to infrequent Bing Chat users, potentially causing frustration.
Unfortunately, the provided information does not include further details about how this feature works or its specific functionality. It seems to be a way for Bing to integrate chat-related search queries or conversations into the search experience.
