Microsoft recently announced a range of new features and updates for Bing, Edge, Microsoft Shopping, and SwiftKey. The updates aim to enhance productivity and creativity, with personalized search results in Bing, improved image creation with Bing Image Creator, and new AI-powered features in SwiftKey.
Revolutionizing Bing Chat and SwiftKey with Innovative Features
Microsoft recently announced a slew of updates across its various platforms, including Bing, Edge, and Microsoft Shopping. Notably, Bing Chat and SwiftKey are set to receive significant enhancements.
Personalized Answers in Bing Chat
Traditional search often requires refining initial queries to find relevant information. Bing Chat aims to streamline this process with personalized answers. This feature uses your chat history to inform search results, providing more contextually relevant information.
“Most of us do dozens of searches on a single topic; in fact more than 60 percent of those searches are spent tweaking the original query.”
For instance, if you’ve used Bing to track your favorite soccer team, it can proactively inform you if the team is playing in your destination city when planning a trip. However, users can easily turn off this feature if they prefer responses that don’t leverage chat history.
Unleashing Creativity with Bing Image Creator
Since its launch, Bing Image Creator has generated over 750M images. The platform is now integrating the new DALL-E 3 model from Open AI for better renderings of details like fingers, eyes, and shadows.
To ensure responsible image creation, Microsoft is introducing Content Credentials. This feature adds an invisible digital watermark to all AI-generated images, including the time and date of creation. This innovation aims to make the internet a more trustworthy place.
“The technology employs standards set by the ‘Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA)’ to add an extra layer of trust and transparency for AI-generated images.”
Enhancing Connections with AI-Powered SwiftKey Features
SwiftKey, the popular mobile keyboard for iOS and Android, is set to receive new AI-powered features. These include AI camera lenses for creating photos, videos, and GIFs with different effects, and AI stickers powered by Bing Image Creator for creating and sending personalized stickers based on your own photos.
Additionally, Microsoft is introducing the Editor in SwiftKey to help improve your grammar, spelling, and punctuation. This feature is geared towards enhancing communication and expression, making SwiftKey an even more powerful tool for mobile users.
These updates demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to innovation, enhancing user experience across its platforms with AI-powered features.
