It is starting to increasingly look like Microsoft has big plans for OpenAI and ChatGPT. Multiple reports are now starting to surface, detailing different ways that the software giant is looking at embedding ChatGPT into its Office apps and its Bing search engine. The plan seems to be to use the tool to help boost user productivity.

With all the recent excitement that has been gripping the internet, it’s not hard to see why Microsoft thinks incorporating ChatGPT into its suite of productivity apps is a good idea. The potential use cases are vast. For example, the model could be used to generate text in a similar way to how current tools like Jasper and Lex are already doing. This could include rewriting documents for clarity and even producing entire documents according to short text prompts input by the user.

However, there are other possibilities too. According to the reports, Microsoft looking to incorporate the chatbot into Outlook to "provide more useful search results when Outlook email customers look for information in their inboxes." Further possibilities could also include analyzing data in Excel or translating texts more reliably.

OpenAI’s own CEO, Sam Altman has also warned against going in too hard on the tool and over-relying on the text it creates. While the chatbot can generate text that sounds plausible, it is not always correct. This is something that is likely to stand in the way of the technology being taken up being implemented in industries where companies need to rely on factually accurate information.

It is important to note here, however, that ChatGPT is an early version of the technology, and has been put out into the public domain specifically so that the developers can learn about these types of issues. This move from Microsoft sends a clear indication of its faith in this process and belief that this type of tech can revolutionize the day-to-day life of people who use the Office suite of programs and send emails every day.

As for a timeline for when we might see ChatGPT integrated into Office, there's no fixed estimate at this point. It's clear that the technology still has a way to go before it will be ready for mainstream use. Despite that, Microsoft’s move would be a big step toward making it more mainstream, which is why Office users should keep an eye on this development. The decision to incorporate ChatGPT into Office and Bing is a significant step toward making these kinds of generative AI tools more prevalent in our everyday lives.

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

  7. St Albans Digital Printing Inc said on September 5, 2023 at 11:53 am

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

  13. TelV said on September 8, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
