Microsoft is busy at work pushing updates as well as enhancements to the new Bing with the aim of enhancing its user experience. Last week, multiple users highlighted that they had experienced accelerated access to the AI copilot for the web, raising the question of whether the tool is still in preview.
Microsoft’s communication director, Caitlin Roulston later clarified that the tool was indeed still in preview and that users were experiencing accelerated access because the company was running numerous tests on the tool.
And now, in Microsoft’s latest preview notes for the new Bing, the company highlights all the new features as well as changes made to the tool. Here’s everything you need to know:
First, as earlier reported Microsoft debuted Edge Copilot in its browser. It ships with the new Bing icon in the sidebar which includes Chat and Compose experiences designed for Bing chat.
The Edge Copilot is designed to boost your productivity and efficiency by providing intelligent suggestions and insights based on the context of the web page and the user’s goals.
Next, the company also increased Bing Chat’s daily chat turn limit from 120 to 150. The number of turns users have in a single conversation with Bing was also bumped to 15 from 10.
Another notable feature added is the capability to share your Bing chat responses with others via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email, or using a persistent link.
Additionally, the company has also enhanced the tool’s contextual understanding, this way it can now understand and interpret large amounts of context in Creative tone conversations.
According to Microsoft:
This expanded context window allows for better grounding, improved summarization of longer documents and pages, and longer conversations.
In February, Microsoft announced that Bing chat will be available across Edge Mobile apps, Skype, and Bing. Now, Microsoft will let you skip the waitlist and allow you to use the Bing preview in Skype.
