Microsoft has released an update to Edge that brings a new sidebar from which you can quickly access the Bing chatbot. From the beginning, the feature was available only in versions for testers, but now it has spread to ordinary users of Windows and MacOS.
What is known
The panel appears as a large Bing button on the top left in Microsoft Edge. When hovering over or clicking on it, a new chatbot window is activated. If you’re a Bing preview member, you can use the chat feature to ask questions to the chatbot, or the text generation option to create text for emails, blog posts, letters, and the like.
The sidebar is based on the context of the page you’re currently viewing, so you can ask the bot to summarize what’s written in an article, compare elements on a page, or let you choose from different tones to create text in blog posts, emails, bulleted lists, and the like.
The sidebar with the Bing chatbot is a consistent step in Microsoft’s strategy to build AI into all of its products to enhance the experience.
