Microsoft announced Wednesday that select Android and iOS users can now try out its new Bing and Edge mobile apps. Users can preview voice search with a new interface and multiple display options. Additionally, its AI-powered Bing chat feature is available to try on Skype. This follows Microsoft announcement in early February that its latest version of Bing includes OpenAI integration.

The preview version is open to global users, and those with access can add Bing to group chats on Skype and ping the chatbot to answer questions in the conversation. According to Microsoft, more than 100 languages ​​are available in the chat tool, and Bing can provide responses in the form of text, bulleted lists, or a simple reply.

While the first rollout of the enhanced Bing and Edge apps has arrived on desktop computers, the mobile versions “will serve as a co-pilot for the web even when you’re away from your computer,” Microsoft said. Previewers using the Bing app on Android or iOS can tap the icon to start a conversation or perform tasks like writing emails or lists. Voice search is also available on the Bing app and Edge app homepage.

Microsoft said previewers may experience connectivity issues with low bandwidth and is working on a fix. The company will continue to make improvements to its Bing AI technology during the testing phase. Early weird response tester reports of the chatbot has prompted critics to voice concerns about AI errors and incorrect responses. Microsoft said it is receiving feedback and will implement improvements along the way.

If you are interested, Microsoft invites you to join the waiting list to preview the new version of Bing.
