Microsoft has announced the preview release of the all-new AI-powered Bing and Microsoft Edge mobile apps, which will serve as users’ copilots for the web. The apps will feature some exciting new features, such as voice input and a new chat experience, beginning with Skype, to enhance social communications with friends and family.

The new Bing and Edge mobile apps have been rolled out to meet the increasing demand for mobile search. With the new app, users can now ask Bing to help them with whatever they need, such as finding a place to store their luggage in a new city, providing tips for navigating the metro system, creating a short itinerary for quick visits, and even translating along the way.

Voice search is also now available on mobile and desktop, providing more versatility in how users can deliver prompts and receive answers from Bing. The Bing chat experience has been improved to refine queries and compose emails, poems, or lists.

To better assist users when collaborating with friends and family, Microsoft has introduced AI-powered Bing for Skype. This will enable users to add Bing to the group chat, and then ask for suggestions on travel destinations, expected weather forecasts, interesting events around the time of travel, and other information. Bing can provide real-time answers to all questions, and can also translate between over 100 languages.

The preview release has already received strong and positive feedback and engagement from users, with more than one million people in 169 countries welcomed off the waitlist into the preview. As Microsoft continues to expand the preview, the feedback on the new capabilities has been positive, with 71% of testers giving the new Bing a “thumbs up” on the new search and answers capabilities.

Overall, the all-new AI-powered Bing and Microsoft Edge mobile apps provide users with a more personalized and powerful experience when searching the web, helping them to discover and create in ways previously not possible.
