The AI battle continues, and Microsoft is regularly adding new features to Bing AI Chat to maintain an edge over its competitors like Google’s Bard. The Redmond tech giant recently released a list of important changes introduced to Bing AI Chat this week.
As highlighted by Microsoft, Bing AI has received some visual enhancement treatment this week. To be more precise, it will now feature images as a part of chat responses. For example, try searching Bing AI with the name of an animal, and in response, Bing will show you key information about that animal summarized, along with an image. You can then click on the image to launch a knowledge card, which will show you more information about their habitat, diet, lifecycle, and other facts.
Support for images covers a wide range of topics, and Microsoft is continuing its effort to add more topics where images will be provided in line with text answers.
To give you more complete answers, Microsoft has “redesigned the visual elements that appear at the end of text-based answers.” For example, when using chat to shop, Bing will display a side-by-side comparison of the items you’re considering, so you can make a more informed decision.
An improved copy-and-paste experience has also been introduced in Bing AI. You will now see a separate Copy button that allows you to paste the block of code elsewhere. Plus, you can now add formatting like paragraphs, bullets, or numbering when asking something on Bing Chat. That’s pretty much what Microsoft added to Bing AI Chat this week.
Microsoft will publish another blog post next week, which will cover everything it will add. As a reminder, Bing AI Chat is now available to everyone.
