Microsoft brings ChatGPT-powered Bing to Apple iPhone and iPad apps

Two weeks ago, Microsoft introduced the world to the all new AI ChatGPT-powered Bing. Since then, Microsoft has welcomed more than one million people in 169 countries off the waitlist into the preview and continues to expand the preview to more people every day. Now, Microsoft is releasing an updated Bing mobile app on iOS today.

The Bing mobile app offers a fresh look and experience. Tapping the Bing icon at the bottom will invoke a chat session, where you can engage AI in all the same ways you can from the desktop. Ask simple or complex questions and receive answers and citations. Choose how you want your answers displayed – bullet points, text or simplified responses. Explore the Bing chat experience to refine your query or compose an email, poem or list.

Yusuf Mehdi for Microsoft:

With the introduction of the new Bing mobile app, we’re adding one of the preview community’s most requested features – voice. Available on mobile and on desktop, voice search provides more versatility in how you can deliver prompts and receive answers from Bing.

With this set of AI-powered features, you can:

• Ask your actual question. When you ask complex questions, Bing gives you detailed replies.
• Get an actual answer. Bing looks at search results across the web to offer you a summarized answer.
• Be creative. When you need inspiration, Bing can help you write poems, stories, or even share ideas for a project.

In the chat experience, you can also chat and ask follow-up questions such as, “can you explain that in simpler terms,” or, “give me more options” to get different and even more detailed answers in your search.

  1. Time will tell, but if the following is true, such an “offering” to the Apple ecosystem could be/should be more than concerning.

    I’ll take J Peterson’s words over Anthony Fauci’s any day…at least when it comes to transparency and truth.
