Bing Chat AI integration on Microsoft SwiftKey lets users chat with Bing on any app that uses SwiftKey.
Microsoft has now introduced Bing chatbot on SwiftKey Keyboard on Android devices. This will allow users to chat with Bing on any app that uses SwiftKey. The new feature is rolling out to SwiftKey beta users. With the latest integration, users will be able to retype any text within the keyboard as well as search the web to find what they need. Microsoft SwiftKey beta for Android can be downloaded from the Play Store. Notably, the update is only available for Android users.
The integration of Bing Chat AI with SwiftKey was announced by Microsoft’s Chief Technology Officer, Pedram Rezaei. He shared that the new AI tool is “slowly rolling out” to users and can be accessed by downloading the SwiftKey beta app from the Play Store. Once installed, SwiftKey beta users will be able to use Microsoft’s Bing chatbot with a single tap in any app using SwiftKey.
According to details shared by The Verge, Bing Chat AI integration in Swiftkey comes with chat mode and tone mode. Chat mode allows users to access the chatbot while Tone mode allows users to retype text directly from the keyboard.
Notably, this feature is currently only available for Android, and there’s no word on when it might come to iOS. It is likely to appear on iPhone soon.
Microsoft dropped SwiftKey support for iOS last year, however, it later brought the app back to the App Store with a promise to “invest heavily in the keyboard”. For the unconvinced, Microsoft SwiftKey Key board for Android and iPhone is a key board that adapts to the user’s type, including words, phrases and emojis, and corrects typos and misspellings.
