Microsoft is revealing more and more features of the new AI-powered Bing. Bing can now be added to a Skype group like any other contact and asked to answer questions and provide information for the entire group.
The company described several scenarios for using Bing in Skype chat that will definitely interest many users. For example, the following use cases are offered:
- Your family is chatting about a trip to a certain city. Directly without leaving the Skype chat, you can ask Bing to provide information about the weather, interesting places, events, or travel route. Thus, all chat participants will receive answers faster and see the result instantly.
- In the midst of a discussion with friends, you can ask Bing to provide facts from the Internet or simply answer a question of interest.
- If you have a problem, you can try to solve it together by asking Bing different questions on the same topic directly in the chat. Something like brainstorming.
You can choose how you want your answers to be displayed — bullet points, text or a simplified response. Bing can accommodate your preferences. Fluent in over 100 languages and able to translate between them, Bing can offer unique value to this global communication tool.
The New Bing in Skype went into preview in February and is available now to those using Bing preview. In the future, Microsoft plans to extend this feature to other communication apps such as Teams.
