Microsoft has now added Bing Chat AI (from Microsoft) to its SwiftKey keyboard for Android. This integration was launched Wednesday. SwiftKey Beta users can quickly access Microsoft’s Bing chatbot by simply tapping a button within any app.
SwiftKey’s Bing Chat integration includes the standard chat mode, which allows you to access the chatbot, and a tone mode, which rewrites any text within the keyboard. This new integration will make the Bing mobile app redundant if you want to use SwiftKey everywhere.
You will need to download the beta SwiftKey version from the Google Play Store in order to access the new Bing Chat integration. Pedram Rezaei (Microsoft’s CTO for mobile and commerce) confirmed that the feature is ” gradually rolling out,” but no information has been released about when SwiftKey iOS users can access it.
Microsoft ended SwiftKey support on iOS last year. The app was then returned to the App Store. Rezaei stated that Microsoft would be “investing heavily into the keyboard” as Microsoft was about to launch an AI-powered version Bing.
Although SwiftKey’s iOS version hasn’t been updated frequently, Microsoft’s AI push is likely to see this Bing integration on the iPhone keyboard soon. Microsoft may also respond to the competition from several AI-powered keyboards that feature ChatGPT integration on iOS. ParagraphAI is an interface that allows you to generate text anywhere and is rapidly growing in popularity on iOS.
After SwiftKey’s popularity on iOS and Android, Microsoft originally acquired SwiftKey in 2016. It was ranked second roundup, thanks to its theme support, tracing, and autocorrect.
