Bing now allows you to share your answers on social networks

Not a day (practically) without news related to the new Bing and his chatbot. Microsoft knows that this is one of its best assets, in a long time, to stand up to Google and, from what we are seeing in recent weeks, they have decided to take advantage of the pull in all possible ways. Something that, in truth, makes all the sense in the world, since the implementation of the chatbot in its browser and the opening of access to it to all users who want it, has allowed those from Redmond to capitalize on the interest aroused by artificial intelligence During the last months.

Yes, I did say that Microsoft has opened up Bing to everyone because even though you still need to sign up for the waiting list to try it out, as of the middle of this week there is no waiting period anymore, as long as you sign up for the list you will get , immediately, access to the new Bing. The only conditions are to use your Microsoft account (Outlook, Hotmail, etc.), since access is not allowed without logging in, and access, on PC, from Microsoft Edge, although here we will tell you how to do it from Chrome and Firefox. Conditions that seem reasonable in view of the imaginable investment in infrastructure that Microsoft must undertake to be able to offer this service.

Obviously, in Remond they will already have more than studied the way to make the new Bing profitable economically, but we can put our hand in the fire betting that today this is not their number one priority (although they are already working on it, with advertising inserts and others). No, right now the focus is on achieving the greatest possible visibilityand that this translates into the arrival of new users attracted by the news of Bing.

This explains to us that, as we can read on his official blog, Bing now has a quick feature to share chatbot responses on our social networks, more specifically on Facebook Twitter and, curiously, also on Pinterest. Also, and this seems very striking to me because I asked the chatbot precisely about this possibility a few weeks ago, We may also share responses by email. and/or, as you can see in the image above, through WhatsApp (in my case, for example, the email option is shown, but not WhatsApp).

It is indisputable that there is an interest, on the part of many users, to share the responses of the new Bing in their profiles. Whether interesting, funny, surprising or even wrong, in recent weeks we have been able to see a large number of screenshots of conversations with the chatbot on social networks. In this way, Microsoft substantially facilitates this operation, since we will only have to place the mouse pointer over the response, click on the share icon and choose the network in which we want to publish it.

Now, let us not have the slightest doubt that the main reason why Microsoft has introduced this change is precisely what was mentioned above, to give even more visibility to the new Bing, by converting its users into broadcasters of the message. Also, of course, these publications will include a link that leads directly… yes, you’re right, to the chatbot. There is nothing wrong with this, be careful, I am not criticizing it. Sounds like a very smart move on the part of the Redmond people, who continue to use their advantage until Google begins to open up access to Bard.
