The new AI-powered Bing, your web copilot, was unveiled earlier this year, fundamentally reimagining search as a category with comprehensive answers, a full chat experience, and tools to foster innovation. The power of large language models (LLMs) is combined with your data from the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps in Microsoft 365 Copilot, which we also announced, to usher in a completely new way of working using only your own words. Since then, we’ve observed as millions of people introduce Bing into their life in novel ways to spark their creativity and improve their comprehension of the wider world.
Using AI for business chat, Bing Chat Enterprise
According to our Work Trend Index, 70% of employees believe they would assign as much work to AI to help them unleash creativity and productivity at work. However, deploying AI tools not intended for the industry unintentionally exposes confidential company information to risk. Organizations adopting AI want to feel secure that their data is being protected.
Bing conversation Enterprise offers your business commercial data protection and AI-powered conversation for business. User and corporate data are secure with Bing Chat Enterprise and won’t leave the company. What goes in and what comes out is kept secure. No one can see your chat data because it is not saved and Microsoft has no access to it. Additionally, the models are not trained using your data. Bing Chat Enterprise gives people access to better answers, improved efficiency, and new creative avenues whether they are looking for industry insights, data analysis, or inspiration.
Bing Chat Enterprise, like Bing Chat, is based on online data, offers comprehensive, substantiated responses with citations, as well as visual responses that include graphs, charts, and images, and is built in accordance with our AI standards.
Bing Chat Enterprise is now available in preview and is free with Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard, and Business Premium subscriptions. Additionally, it will eventually cost $5 per user, per month, as a stand-alone offering. Anywhere Bing Chat is supported, including Bing.com/chat and the Microsoft Edge sidebar, you may access Bing Chat Enterprise using your work account. In the future, Windows Copilot will also provide access to Bing Chat Enterprise.

Use Visual Search in Chat to conduct searches using visuals instead of simply words.
We continue to introduce new features and experiences to Bing Chat in order to assist users get the most out of this technology, in addition to enabling the potential of generative AI for people at work. Focusing on developing visual features for Bing Chat is a component of this work. And today, we’re happy to report that we’re introducing multimodal functionality through Visual Search in Chat.
Visual Search in Chat uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 model to enable anyone to post photos and look up relevant web articles. Use a photo you’ve taken or one you’ve found somewhere, and ask Bing to describe it for you. Bing is capable of comprehending the context of an image, interpreting it, and providing answers. Upload the image into Bing Chat and use it to tap into the knowledge of the web to receive answers, whether you’re at home trying to come up with lunch ideas based on the contents of your fridge or traveling to a new city and inquiring about the design of a specific building. With Bing Chat Enterprise in the works, visual search in chat is currently starting to roll out via desktop and the Bing mobile app.
