Microsoft continues to add small but interesting new features to people accessing its Bing Chat chatbot services. today the The official Bing blog has been updated To note that two tested features are now available to all Bing Chat users.
The first of these two new additions is the integration of Bing Chat into the Microsoft Launcher app for Android devices. This was previously added to the beta version of the app. Now the stable version of Microsoft Launcher has included Bing Chat which allows Android smartphones to add it to their home screen. Microsoft Launcher is available for download Google Play Stores.
The other new addition is one that has again been in testing with a small group of users for some time now. If you’re having a conversation with Bing Chat about a topic on your desktop computer, but need to leave your computer, you can now continue the chat on your mobile device.
The new feature places a “Continue on Phone” icon in the upper right corner of your last Bing Chat conversation. Clicking on this icon will display a QR code. So all you have to do is bring your smartphone to the computer monitor and use the phone’s camera to display the QR code. The phone should then create a link that you can tap to launch the Bing mobile app, where you can continue your Bing Chat where you left it on your computer.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft added access to Bing Chat to all users of Google’s Chrome web browser. We are still awaiting full access to the service in other third-party browsers such as Apple’s Safari. Microsoft also recently began testing a new no-search option for Bing Chat with a small percentage of users.
