Microsoft has added its Bing AI chatbot to its popular third-party keyboard app SwiftKey for iOS and Android phones, giving users quick access to AI-generated answers and tips.
With the keyboard open, just tap the blue Bing icon above the keyboard on the left to open the submenu, then choose whether Bing AI searches the internet for a query or gives you answers itself through a cat.
The chatbot can also help your conversational, offering suggestions for other ways to phrase a typed statement if you want your messages to sound a little more personable, more fun, or more professional. Heck, it will even condense what you say into something that will fit in a 140 character tweet.
Anyone can use Bing AI to search the keyboard, but the more advanced AI chatbot and tone editing require users to sign in to their Microsoft account first.
Microsoft added AI to its Bing search engine in early February and has rolled out more AI integrations since, such as adding an AI image creator powered by OpenAI’s Dall-E AI to Bing and a AI-powered ‘Copilot’ to its Office apps. It looks like Bing AI is going to play a big role in Microsoft’s products in the future, as the company added it to Windows 11Also.
