Third-Party Browser Support: With so many new, useful features now a part of Bing, we’re excited to announce you can start experiencing the new AI-powered Bing in third-party browsers on web and mobile soon. This next step in the journey allows Bing to showcase the incredible value of summarized answers, image creation and more, to a broader array of people. You’ll get most of the great benefits of Bing and we’ll continue to optimize along the way to meet your needs across different browsers. While these experiences work well in your preferred browser, for the best-in-class Bing Chat experience, we continue to encourage you to use Bing in the Microsoft Edge browser. With Edge, you'll unlock longer conversations, chat history, and more Bing features built right into the browser. To experience the best browser for Bing, and get the full breadth of features, simply open the Microsoft Edge browser and click the Bing Chat icon in the sidebar.

Microsoft's Bing team did not release its usual weekly development update on its Bing Chat chatbot service on Friday afternoon via the Bing blog. However, that doesn't mean the team has been taking it easy. The team has been quietly testing a major new feature with a small portion of Bing Chat users for the past couple of weeks.

That new feature is image recognition, and a few Bing Chat users have been given access to it and reporting on the new addition online via Twitter. The feature lets users upload an image, and then ask Bing Chat questions about it.

One of these early testers is Karsten Lehmann, who showed on Twitter how he used it to identify a specific ancient Egyptian temple.

Another Twitter user, known as "@artificialguybr", scanned an image of a math equation and asked Bing Chat to identify it, which it did as the "Schrödinger equation" along with some more info.

Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s head of Advertising and Web Services, has confirmed that the new feature is currently being flighted to about 10 percent of all Bing Chat users at the moment. It's also only available for desktop users, but the plan is to expand the support to Bing mobile users as well. Parakhin stated that it should be available "for everyone in a few weeks."

Parakhin also mentioned on Twitter that Bing Chat support for arbitrary-length document scanning will begin testing next week, again for about 10 percent of all users. He also stated that experimental testing for including Bing Chat in third-party browsers was temporarily pulled because the team "Found a bunch of bugs (especially in Safari)." Testing for this long-awaited feature will be back "soon".

Online shopping revolutionized the way we research, find, and buy the things we want and need. But as options and information grow, online shopping has become overwhelming. Online shoppers describe the process as stressful and confusing. There is simply too much to choose from, places to look, and information to sort through. Not to mention, frustration with finding relevant deals that actually work at checkout or knowing which customer ratings and reviews to trust.

Online shopping just feels like more work.

Our goal is to bring more joy to shopping—from the initial spark of inspiration to the exciting unboxing experience—by making the process easier and giving you confidence, you’re getting the right item at the right price. Microsoft Shopping already helps you save time and money with tools across Bing, Edge, Microsoft Start, and Outlook. In fact, Microsoft Edge has offered $3.7 billion in savings to shoppers worldwide in the last year thanks to built-in shopping features like Coupons, Cashback, Price History, and Price Comparison. Plus, US shoppers can save an average of $400 per year with Microsoft Edge.

Today, we’re excited to announce new Microsoft Shopping tools in Bing and Edge that help you shop and save with confidence, harnessing the power of AI to make it easier to discover, research, and complete your purchase, all in one place with information you need from expert sources. Discover what you need with Buying Guides—even when you’re not sure what that is

Most years, back-to-school shopping comes with a school supplies list—but not when it comes to college. Highlighters, folders, and notebooks don’t even cover the basics, so what do new college students really need? Bing can help with answers to all your questions about college supplies. Start by going to Bing.com and typing “college supplies” into the search box. Your shopping assistant for the web will do the research for you, using AI to generate a tailored Buying Guide that tells you what to look for in each category, offers product suggestions, and shows the specifications of multiple, similar items next to each other in a smart compare table, so you can quickly compare options without having to click around to various websites. You can also access Buying Guides in the Edge sidebar or in Bing Chat. Buying Guides in Bing are available now in the US and will be rolling out to other markets over time. Buying Guides in Edge are starting to roll out worldwide.

Now that you know that noise-cancelling headphones are essential for getting some distraction-free study time, how do you choose which ones to buy? Prices range from $30 to $300, and each brand has different specs and an overwhelming number of reviews. While shopping for headphones, you can open Bing Chat in the Edge sidebar and Bing will suggest what aspects to consider when shopping for headphones like sound quality, fit and device compatibility. And when you find a specific pair you like, you can ask Bing Chat in Edge to briefly summarize what people are saying about it online and provide a quick look at top insights and popular opinions about the product. Review Summaries are starting to roll out today worldwide just in time for back-to-school.

Find the best price and save money even after you’ve made a purchase

Now that you’ve picked out the headphones you want, Microsoft Shopping tools on Bing and Edge can help you find the best price and time to buy, so you can complete your purchase with the peace of mind that you got a great deal. Our Price Match feature continues to work for you, even after your purchase, by monitoring the item's price and assisting you in requesting a match if it drops. We’ve partnered with top US retailers with existing price match policies and will be adding more over time. Price Comparison and Price History are built-in browser features that help ensure you’re buying at the right place and time, and Edge helps you automatically apply coupons and cashback when shopping online, right from Bing Chat. Package Tracking also keeps tabs on your purchase from the Edge sidebar, so you don’t have to dig through your inbox for shipping confirmations and tracking numbers. Price Match will be rolling out soon in the US. Price History, Price Comparison, Coupons, Cashback, and Package Tracking are already available in select markets and built-in to Edge.
