“Microsoft Edge” with built-in AI chat function from “Bing”

The other day, we announced that the new “Bing” AI chat function will be incorporated into “Microsoft Edge”, but we confirmed that you can actually try it out in the “Edge” preview version ( Beta channel), so let’s look at it this time. I’d like to introduce

A future version of Edge will probably add a more prominent Bing icon in the top right corner of the screen (previously it was a bit quieter, but they probably wanted to draw attention to the Bing brand).

It appears that you can also open and close the sidebar by hovering the mouse over the icon.

I checked the flight schedule. It also tells you the web page of the referral source at the same time. I didn’t like the order of the information, so I asked for it to be sorted by departure time, but it was handled appropriately.

Also, the “Bing” response has a link to the source. Sometimes AI lies, so when using AI to write university reports and articles, you should get into the habit of checking the sources and checking the accuracy of the information.

Mado no Mori is a website that presents online software for Microsoft Windows operated by Impress Co., Ltd. It was founded in 1995 by Takashi Higuchi.

Since then, it has become an indispensable source of information for Windows users.

The purpose of Mado no Mori is to deliver free and shareware software that makes Windows easier to use, and to connect developers and users. In addition, the latest news, columns, Q&A, etc. are also posted, and it also plays a role in disseminating information and technology related to Windows.

Conference room B



and set “Tone” to “Professional” and “Format” to “Mail”, you’ll get something like this:

If you are interested in this feature, download the preview (pre-production) version of Edge from the Microsoft Edge Insider Channels website and install it (Dev or Beta is recommended). The product version and the preview version can coexist in the same environment, so you can try them with confidence.
