For the past month, it feels like it's been all about AI and ChatGPT. Well, I've got some news for you. This journey just got started. As AI infiltrates the online world, don't get left behind without knowing what you can do with it.

In February, Microsoft revealed the AI-powered Bing chatbot crowning it “the new Bing.” The one thing I know about the new Bing is that it’s impressive as an automated tool. It can answer questions in full sentences or even long paragraphs, but one thing we didn't know it could do is it can draw information from the most recent web results. 

These web features put Bing above ChatGPT, which commonly can't give any information on recent events and activities. Bing’s ability to cite sources also helps to double-check any uncertain responses from ChatGPT. Before we get lost not knowing what the new Bing can do, I've put together a few cool functions. Here we go.

5 Cool Things You Can Do With Bing Chat AI

Create Comparison Tables

The one advantage that Bing has over ChatGPT is that it can search the web for the most recent information. On top of that, it can process the information and deliver it to you in several formats - comparison tables included. The easiest way to get it to do that is to ask it to “ create a table comparing the specifications of the surface laptop 4 and the M2 MacBook Air.”  With whatever prompt you go with, Bing will go ahead and look for the most important specifications and put them out in a readable table. 

Draw Text Art

Drawing text art is also known as ASCII, and it relies on command line tools, text characters, and other computer software. Bing can generate this art with just a prompt. A simple request like “ Create  ASCII art of a person standing next to a car” works fine. This feature is still at the grassroots as it seems to fail more than it works.

 Turn Web Pages Into Quizzes

Despite the inconsistencies, this feature has on Bing. Bing still does it anyway, and it could be of some great help.  Sometimes when creating quizzes the prompts you put in will give you all the questions and answers in one statement, which you will then have to sort out yourself. Here you could use a prompt such as “quiz me with multiple choices based on this page only.” 

Get Up to Speed on Current Events

Bing can be very useful if you’ve no clue on what’s going on and the recent news isn’t helping. You really can use a simple voice prompt like “ Explain Sweden in NATO.” Bing will deliver the answer to you in a few sentences. 

Date and Time Conversions

Although the date and time conversions are nothing out of this world as most search engines can do that. The cool thing with Bing is that it allows you to feed the conversions into other Bing features. For example, if you are planning a party to be held at a specified time, Bing Chat can group the conversions and present the information in different writing styles and formats.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments (https://www.ghacks.net/chatgpt-gets-schooled-by-princeton-university/#comments). Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If ghacks.net intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this Friend.tech as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [https://www.ghacks.net/2023/08/23/what-is-friend-tech/] and it appears there but as well here at [https://www.ghacks.net/2023/07/08/how-to-follow-everyone-on-threads/]

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
