Microsoft’s investment in OpenAI has enabled the integration of AI chatbot ChatGPT into various applications, including Bing and Edge. This conversational AI chatbot is now being added to SwiftKey, a keyboard app for Android. This integration will provide SwiftKey users with easy access to the chatbot by tapping a button above the keys.
Microsoft Swiftkey keyboard gets Bing AI Chatbot
According to The Verge, the process starts by installing the SwiftKey Beta app from the Google Play Store and signing in with your Microsoft Account information. However, some Android users have reported that they have not yet seen the chatbot after installing the app. Microsoft’s CTO of mobile and commerce, Pedram Rezaei, has confirmed on Twitter that the feature is slowly rolling out.
Once users have access to the chatbot via Swiftkey keyboard, they will be able to use it to improve their text messages. The AI feature can rewrite text using different tones, resulting in more natural and engaging messages. This functionality is also available on Bing and Edge, where it can be used to create documents and emails.
Microsoft recently pulled SwiftKey from iOS before bringing it back. As a result, the company may feel pressured to quickly integrate the AI chat feature with the iOS version of SwiftKey, given the competition from other third-party QWERTY keyboard apps with AI functionality.
Meanwhile, Google is also expected to integrate its apps, including Search and Gboard, with its conversational AI chatbot Bard. This move will further enhance the capabilities of Google’s apps and provide users with a more engaging and interactive experience.
Overall, the integration of AI chatbots into various applications including Swiftkey keyboard is a growing trend. Companies are investing heavily in these technologies to provide users with more personalized and engaging experiences. With the continued development of AI, we can expect to see even more advanced chatbots in the future.
