Microsoft is working on a new Bing Chat-powered AI for its Edge browser to improve your content to help you communicate better. While it sounds similar to what Bing Chat can do on Edge, the upcoming text assistant will make it even easier to type words.
As he saw it for the first time @Leopeva64 (via MSPoweruser), Microsoft is testing a new “AI-writing” feature on the Edge Settings page that will allow you to rewrite text with the help of ChatGPT-powered Bing Chat. The ability to rewrite text in multiple formats is already available in Bing Chat via Edge. Not only that, but you can also create ideas, and adjust the length of your speech using Bing Chat in the sidebar. Once enabled, the settings used on the Settings page can also do all of these things.
The move to introduce the switch to Edge even though it’s already on the side of the browser seems to be attracting more people to use it. And how does this update make the rewrite available to Edge users, you ask? Well, with editing enabled, you can simply select a field, say, comment on a social media post and click the Rewrite pop-up to finish the job. It’s much more straightforward than opening a page, putting your words in a prompt and asking you to retype.
AI text editing in Edge does more than just rewrite. Apart from allowing you to set different cities, it also allows you to go back to the original or replace the original with the one provided by Bing Chat. Microsoft recently rolled out similar capabilities in Skype’s Bing Chat.
Microsoft is testing this change with selected Edge Canary users, so you may not see it even if you install the latest version of Canary. But when it becomes more available, go to Settings > Languages, and then find and turn on Use (AI-writing) online to change the Writing support feature to use the feature.
