Announcing the Next Wave of AI Innovation with Microsoft Bing and Edge

Just three months ago, we unveiled the new AI-powered Microsoft Bing and Edge to reinvent the future of search with your copilot for the web.

Today I’m thrilled to announce that we are moving to the next generation of AI-powered Bing and Edge to transform the largest category of software in the world – search – by greatly expanding the vision and capabilities we think of as Your Copilot for the Web. This next generation is defined by: 

  • Opening up Bing to more people by moving from Limited Preview to Open Preview and eliminating the waitlist for trial. 
  • Moving from text-only search & chat to one that is incredibly more visual with rich image/video answers and coming shortly, new multimodal support. 
  • Moving from single use chat/search sessions to multi-session productivity experiences with chat history and persistent chats within Edge. 
  • Opening up platform capabilities so developers and third parties can build on top of Bing/Edge to help people take actions on their queries and complete tasks.

We couldn’t be more excited to get today’s updates out to you. As noted above, you can read about them in more detail here. We welcome your feedback on these latest developments!
