Microsoft is introducing its Bing chatbot to Android with SwiftKey. The new Bing chatbot is at the moment available in any app with the SwiftKey keyboard capable of rewriting text or even searching the web for answers.

Microsoft has now added Bing Chat AI to its popular SwiftKey keyboard for Android. The said integration began to appear on Wednesday and it allows users of SwiftKey Beta to access Microsoft’s Bing chatbot quickly just at the tap of a button in any app.

The Bing Chat integration inside SwiftKey as you should know includes the usual chat mode that offers access to the chatbot, or a tone mode that will easily rewrite any text all within the keyboard. And if you were only utilizing the Bing mobile app to get access to the chatbot, this very new integration makes that app rather redundant if, instead, you’re willing to install and make use of SwiftKey just about everywhere.

How to Access the New Integration

In a bid to access this new Bing Chat integration, you will however need to download the beta version of SwiftKey on the Google Play Store., Microsoft’s CTO of mobile and commerce, Pedram Rezaei on Twitter confirmed that the feature is “slowly rolling out,” but that there’s no word on when iOS users of SwiftKey will be able to try it out.

Microsoft in the previous year discontinued support for SwiftKey on iOS, just before quickly returning the app to the App Store. And at the time in question, Rezaei said that Microsoft will be “investing heavily in the keyboard,” just as the firm was at the time preparing to launch an AI-powered version of Bing publicly.

Microsoft’s AI Push and Everything You Need to Know

And while the iOS version of SwiftKey has not been updated on a regular, Microsoft’s AI push will very much likely see this Bing integration get to appear on the iPhone keyboard side very soon. Microsoft might also be responding to competition from a host of AI-powered keyboards on iOS that is inclusive of ChatGPT integration. Paragraph AI includes an interface that allows users to generate text everywhere and it is already rising in popularity on iOS.

Microsoft Bought SwiftKey in 2016

Microsoft initially acquired SwiftKey back in 2016, after the third-party keyboard gained popularity on Android and iOS. It was one of the best Android keyboards in the industry back in 2015, all thanks to its tracing, autocorrect, and theme support and features.
