Microsoft has brought its AI-powered Bing Chat to mobile devices. The chatbot is now available in three apps on Android and iOS.

Bing Chat comes to Android and iPhones

The next-gen search tool driven by OpenAI's ChatGPT technology has already gained over 1 Million users in 169 Countries. It has been received positively by 71% of testers for its search-and-answer capabilities.

Bing Chat comes to Android and iPhones

Bing AI Chat can be used from the Edge, Bing and Skype apps for iOS and Android, provided that you have access to the new Bing. I have been using it every day since I got access to it on desktop. The mobile version of the chat is more or less similar to the desktop's interface, but there are some notable changes in the user experience.

Bing Chat with Voice Access

The Bing app displays a welcome screen to highlight the introduction of Bing chat. The Edge browser app didn't let me use the Chat option even though I was signed in to the same account. Perhaps it is rolling out to users slowly.

Bing Chat comes to iOS and Android in 3 Microsoft apps

Bing Chat in the Search app can be accessed by tapping the large "B" icon at the bottom. The chatbot's start page has a large microphone button that takes center stage. Microsoft wants users to use voice access to talk with the AI. Of course, you will need to grant permission to the app for using your microphone. This is completely optional, you may skip it and use the keyboard button in the bottom right corner, to type in your queries. The app will also request location access to provide relevant results, this requirement is also optional.

Bing Chat turn limit increased to 6 per conversation

You can ask it to write poems, jokes, riddles, songs, letters, code a program, etc. The experience is identical to the PC version. The chat turn limit for Bing AI has been increased from 5 to 6. So after you get 6 replies from the bot, you will need to clear the chat, and start a new conversation. Microsoft announced the change a couple of days ago, while also confirming that there is a limit of 60 total chats per day. The Redmond company plans to increase the count to 100 chats per day soon.

The links for sources in the answers and results are annotated (numbered links). The links aren't highlighted directly when you scroll the chat, however, if you tap on the bot's reply the text becomes underlined to indicate they are clickable. Tap the "Learn More" button to view the names of the websites that were linked to, that you can visit and if you wish to verify the information provided by the A.I.

Bing AI is still in an early phase, sometimes its answers are not always accurate, or in this particular example, it is clearly not up-to-date. For those who don't follow soccer, the score in this particular answer is correct, but the player's name is wrong, he doesn't even play for that team anymore. Interestingly, Bing did not cite a source for this answer, I wonder where it pulled the incorrect information from. When you point out an answer is wrong or ask it about its limitations, the chatbot seems to want to stop the conversation.

Microsoft Bing Chat in Skype

Microsoft has also introduced the AI-powered Bing in Skype for mobile. You can have a one-on-one conversation with the bot, or even add the AI to group chats. The chatbot can do more than just chat, it can format answers into lists, and is capable of translating text in over 100 languages, so it can be useful in a multilingual group.

You'll need to add Bing to your Skype contacts, in order to access the chatbot. There are several Skype users who have their profile name as Bing, make sure you are chatting with the actual Microsoft bot.

How to use Bing Chat in Skype

1. Open the Skype app on your phone, and switch to the Contacts tab in the bottom right corner.

2. Tap in the Search box.

3. You should see Bing as the first result below your People (Address Book) list. It's listed under Bing in Skype.

4. Tap on Bing, and it will display a welcome message. Tap the "Try it" button.

5. The app will request location access, you may skip it, and the chat will load.

You would think that a chat app would offer the best experience with a chatbot, but ironically the Bing AI in Skype experience is not as good as the Edge/Bing app version. The latter are better due to the annotations for links, and clickable follow-up queries.

Download the mobile apps to test the chatbot.

    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.

  2. Paul(us) said on March 20, 2023 at 1:32 am

    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?

    1. Clairvaux said on September 6, 2023 at 11:30 am

      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.

  4. yanta said on August 18, 2023 at 11:59 pm

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

  5. John G. said on August 20, 2023 at 4:22 am

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

  6. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 7:48 am

    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.

  8. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    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?

  10. Scroogled said on September 5, 2023 at 10:47 pm

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

  11. ard said on September 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    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.

  14. Anonymous said on September 18, 2023 at 1:23 pm

    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.
