Microsoft’s AI-powered search engine, Bing, has added a new feature to its platform: chat history. With this update, Bing remembers previous chat threads and displays them to the right of the chat interface. Users can now go back to any previous conversation they had and continue it. Additionally, users can export their most interesting conversations and share them with others. This addition puts Bing on par with ChatGPT in supporting chat history.
With this in mind to chat history, Microsoft has also added support for graphics in Bing. Asking questions like “What is the MSFT stock price?” or “Sort cities in Brazil by population” will cause Bing to produce graphics for them instead of just generating text. Users can also export these charts for use in a PDF, text file, or Microsoft Word document. Plus, Microsoft says it has optimized responses for recipes.
Chat responses will sometimes trigger video responses as well. Users can tap on them to start a full-screen video overlay.
Aside from the new features, Bing received some tweaks to more accurately predict the next word as users enter their message. Also fixed was the issue where the Share dialog was taking longer to display than it should.
Bing is also available in the Edge sidebar on the right, where it can be used to summarize the content of the currently open page or document and get additional information. Microsoft has emphasized that when Bing detects that a user’s question is about their PC or private content, it will not record those conversations. These conversations will also not appear in the new chat history feature.
In the end, these updates make Bing even more useful for users looking for quick answers and richer responses from their searches. As Microsoft continues refining its AI-powered search engine with weekly updates, we can expect even more exciting features coming soon.
