  • Bing AI with ChatGPT is now available on mobile devices.
  • Microsoft is also integrating the new Bing with Skype chat.
  • You can try these experiences as long as you have already access to the desktop experience.

As Microsoft continues the gradual rollout of its Bing AI with ChatGPT to more users (in a limited preview), the company is now bringing the chatbot experience to mobile devices, including Android and iOS. In addition, the chat experience is also coming to Skype with voice access.

As part of the mobile experience, the new Bing AI is available through the Bing app and the mobile version of Microsoft Edge. However, the experience doesn’t include anything new. It’s the same as the one you can access today on the desktop on Windows 11, 10, macOS, and Linux. You can also interact using voice controls.

Microsoft is also integrating the chatbot on Skype. When using the new version of the app, users can chat or speak with the AI to get answers. The company describes it as an experience that provides “a comprehensive and creative source of information, inspiration, and answers to your questions.”

If you are chatting with family, you can “@bing” in the same conversation to ask the AI for help (such as settling a discussion, planning a trip, etc.), and since it understands the context, you will receive a relevant answer. “Bing can understand and communicate fluently in more than 100 languages.”

In the announcement, the company also states that you can choose “how you want your answers displayed. Whether you prefer bullet points, text, or a response that is written in a way a 5-year-old can understand.”

Bing AI in Skype can also be fun when asking the chat for “jokes, poems, stories, games, quizzes, and more. Discuss the weather, sports, news, trivia, and more with Bing and your friends or family.”

Whether you want to try the new Bing AI integration with Skype or the experience on mobile devices, you have to enroll on the waiting list to receive an invitation. If you already have access to the chatbot on the desktop, you can use the new experience on mobile and Skype (though it might take a day or two before it becomes available to everyone).

Also, since the preview of the new Bing with ChatGPT became available, the company has been proactively working to improve the experience, including restricting the number of queries you ask per session to six and up to 60 sessions per day. The reason is that the development team has acknowledged (after user feedback) that long conversation sessions with the chatbot can confuse the AI language model resulting in unwanted behaviors, including incorrect answers, argumentative tones, and other behaviors.
