Microsoft Adds Bing Chat AI to SwiftKey Keyboard for Android

1 Mins read

Microsoft has added the Bing chatbot to its SwiftKey keyboard on Android devices, allowing users to chat with Bing on any app that uses SwiftKey. The new feature is currently available to beta users and will enable them to rewrite any text within the keyboard as well as search the web to find what they need. 

The integration was announced by Microsoft’s Chief Technology Officer, Pedram Rezaei, via a tweet. In his tweet, he stated 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. The update is currently only available for Android users.

According to details shared by The Verge, the Bing Chat AI integration to SwiftKey comes with a chat mode and a tone mode. The chat mode lets users access the chatbot while the tone mode allows users to rewrite text directly from the keyboard.

This latest integration follows Microsoft’s ongoing efforts to enhance its chatbot capabilities and improve the user experience. SwiftKey users will now be able to seamlessly use the Bing chatbot with a single tap in any app that supports SwiftKey. The Bing chatbot will offer users suggestions for different phrases, help them find information quickly, and assist in correcting any spelling errors.

Notably, the feature is currently available only for Android, and there are no words on when it might arrive on iOS. It is likely to appear on the iPhone soon.

SwiftKey support for iOS was dropped last year, but the app was brought back later with a promise that it would “invest heavily in the keyboard.” In case you are unfamiliar with Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard, Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard for Android and iPhone are keyboards that adapt to the way a user types including words, phrases, and emojis, and correct typos as well as misspellings accordingly.
