Bing is Microsoft’s Search Engine and is the default search tool in Microsoft Edge. But as long as Google rules, Bing is still the underdog in the search engines wars. This might change with the latest AI integration in Bing. Bing AI is still under development, but the future looks promising. Although there is some controversy about AI and unpleasant reports by beta users of the tool, Microsoft seems ready to take it to the next level.
Bing AI Chat is already available to Windows Insiders, and with the upcoming update will be added to Windows 11 search taskbar. Windows search taskbar is a popular tool, so this is a welcome feature. Microsoft stated that it needs more feedback about its product before making it publicly available. If you are listed in the Bing preview project, you can install the update and get access to this feature. The rest of us have to wait just a little longer. AI seems here to stay, and Microsoft currently leads the way. It should also be noted that AI Chatbot will be available to Bing Android and iOS apps. An AI demo for 365 apps will also be available soon. Microsoft wants to be ahead of the competition, and these strategic moves also prove this.
Bing AI search taskbar won’t be the only added feature in the upcoming Windows 11 update, though. The list includes improvements and enhancements in the Snipping tool, Notepad, Phone Link, etc. Screen recording with the Snipping tool and tabs in Notepad should be an honorable mention, among others. You can check the complete list here. We hope this update won’t come with any issues that sometimes might occur. Overall seems to bring welcome features after all.
Microsoft improves Windows 11, update by update. Still, Windows 10 is the most popular OS at the time. This is reasonable because Windows 11 are way more demanding than 10. But MS is focused on its latest OS, and Windows 11 upgrade for Windows 10 users is still free. Meeting the minimum requirements might be worth taking the next step. Windows 10 will be officially supported until October 14, 2025. Considering the increasing usage of AI in the latest OS, it might be time to upgrade.
The fact is Microsoft invests a lot in its AI projects. OpenAI’s ChatGPT is already a successful AI tool, and the Redmond giant plans to integrate its technology into Bing, Skype, and Edge mobile. The technological Colossus has invested a generous amount of money in OpenAI. So, this move shows well what its motives are and how much its products would be affected. Positive or negative, right or wrong, good or bad, only the future can tell. For now, it is more than a welcome feature.
