Today, Microsoft announced in a blog post that Bing will gain a homescreen widget for both Android and iOS. With the new widget, users may use their voice or the keyboard to start Bing or the AI conversation feature. It's a wonderful addition and one that comes before Google, which intends to release a comparable widget for Bard. You may now carry on a discussion with the AI chatbot in the Bing app for mobile and desktop simultaneously. However, users will still need to scan a QR code in order to advance the conversation; it won't be totally automatic. All users will get access to this "within the next week."
