In its ongoing commitment to deliver quality user experiences, Bing Chat is continually pushing the envelope by implementing previously announced features and tailoring its product to feedback received from the user community. Today, Bing shares exciting updates about features that have been rolled out and are fully accessible to all Bing Chat users.
For this week, the spotlight shines on a couple of key features:
Voice Chat Expansion to Desktop: Bing Chat’s voice input feature is no longer confined to mobile devices. Responding to a demand from users who adore the convenience of voice chat on mobile, the feature has been made available on the desktop version.
The activation is as simple as clicking on the microphone icon located in the Bing Chatbox. Language support currently includes English, Japanese, French, German, and Mandarin, but stay tuned—more languages are in the pipeline. To test this feature, go ahead and challenge Bing Chat with a tongue twister, try: “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”
Text-to-Speech Responses: Not only does Bing Chat accept your voice commands, but it also talks back! Yes, Bing Chat is now equipped with text-to-speech capabilities, enabling it to answer your inquiries in its own unique voice. To experience this firsthand, you might ask Bing Chat, “What’s the toughest tongue twister you know?”
These updates are part of Bing Chat’s commitment to evolve in response to user needs, as well as its ambition to explore and experiment with potential features. These product evolutions may occasionally show up in your Bing Chat experience, as the team fine-tunes them to provide the most optimal and enjoyable user experience.
