Microsoft announced this week that it has integrated and rolled out its AI-powered integration Bing Service directly in the SwiftKey keyboard app for both Android and iOS. It puts AI goodness that the tech world can’t get enough of right at your little fingertips.
Microsoft outlines three unique ways to use Bing through Swiftkey – Search, Chat, and Tone As for searching things, let’s not forget the last Bing-powered search on SwiftKey a few years ago in 2018. This time, there is AI and what should be a better flow for the whole experience without the need to switch apps.
More interesting thing is chat and tone. As explained by Microsoft, with the chat functionality, “everyone is cracking jokes in a chat thread and Bing can help if you need a clever pun, or you’re texting some new friends to recommend a good local restaurant in the area.” Highly relevant in the sense that, basically, Bing can make you seem like a much funnier/exciting person than you are.
For tone, Bing can help you compose messages in real time. For example, it can help you communicate with colleagues in a more professional manner or help you find the right words for a particular situation.
Whether you struggle to be formal in your work emails, or you’re learning a new language and want help with the nuances of word choice, the Tone feature has you covered to make your sounds more professional, casual, and polite. , or short enough for a social post.
I’ve dug into my Gboard quite a bit, but I find myself trying to see if this AI stuff is completely cracked. It sounds useful.
