Microsoft’s Bing has achieved a new milestone by surpassing 100 million daily active users, thanks to its innovative chatbot AI feature that allows users to interact with the search engine in a conversational way.
Bing Chat, powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology, was launched in February 2023 as a preview feature for select users who signed up for early access. The generative AI is capable of answering user prompts and creating various content such as essays, poetry, speeches, and even music lyrics.
Users can also chat with Bing about any topic they can think of, including discussions about hobbies, interests, opinions, jokes, stories, and more.
According to Microsoft’s Vice President for Modern Life, Search and Devices Yusuf Mehdi, Bing Chat has attracted over a million users to sign up for the preview program, and more than a third of them are new to the search platform.
