Microsoft has announced that Bing Chat, its AI-powered chatbot, is now available in Google Chrome and Safari. This is a significant update, as it makes Bing Chat more accessible to a wider range of users.
Previously, Bing Chat was only available in the Edge browser. This meant that users who wanted to use Bing Chat had to use Microsoft Edge, even if they preferred to use Chrome or Safari. The update to Bing Chat makes it possible for users to use their preferred browser and still have access to the chatbot.
Using Bing Chat on Chrome and Safari is not as smooth and seamless as using it on Edge. You have to deal with some trade-offs, such as a shorter prompt length (2,000 words instead of 4,000), a shorter conversation span (five turns instead of 30), and Microsoft's annoying pop-ups that urge you to switch to Edge.
Microsoft has also added a feature to Bing Chat: dark mode. You can turn on dark mode by clicking the hamburger menu in the top-right corner of Bing Chat, and then choosing Appearance > Dark or System Default. This will make your chat interface look sleek and stylish, and also help reduce eye strain and battery consumption. It seems that this feature is rolling out gradually as some users report having it and others – including yours truly – do not.
