Microsoft published a blog that explains how its Bing AI app can help you. It asks readers like you to imagine you had an unexpected layover in a new city.
It used Tokyo city as an example. It’s youre first time, so you ask Bing to help you find a spot to store your luggage.
Then, let’s say you want to go around the city for a while, so you want to check out famous places like Shinjuku station.
The Bing AI app can provide directions to get there via train. Also, it gives you a short itinerary containing popular landmarks.
The program would also translate Japanese into English as you explore. The Bing app is as easy to use as ChatGPT.
Open the program and tap the Bing icon at the button to begin a chat session. Then, type any simple or complicated question in the text box.
You may tell the app to provide simplified answers, detailed explanations, or bullet points. Moreover, Microsoft encourages users to compose emails, lists, and messages via Bing AI.
The tech giant also added voice recognition to the app. It enables the app to understand your voice commands and speak its answers.
How to use Bing AI in Skype
Skype lets you have video calls like Zoom and online chats like Messenger. According to Microsoft, over 36 million people use it daily to connect with friends and family.
Now, you can bring Bing AI into the group. Imagine you are discussing with relatives how to plan your next family vacation.
You may add Bing to the conversation like any Skype contact. Then, you may ask Bing questions as if it’s a person in the group.
In response, it would answer in simple words. For example, you may ask, “what is the weather like tomorrow in Singapore?”
It would tell you the weather forecast in that country. Moreover, you could request tourist landmarks or interesting events while you’re there.
You could ask Bing to update you if you’re talking about the latest news about US celebrities.
Like the standalone Bing AI app, it could provide a simple answer, a detailed explanation, or a set of bullet points.
It is also fluent in more than 100 languages and can translate between them. As a result, it could help you meet new people worldwide.
Microsoft launched the Bing AI app as a personal assistant for smartphone users. Also, the company integrated the service into the video conferencing platform Skype.
