Microsoft’s Bing AI chatbot is continuously improving. And, as a result, the Redmond-based tech giant is looking to bring these Bing chat new features to life.
These features include the ability to pin conversations, hear responses out loud without voice input, categorize chat history, and hide chat history to use the chat in full-screen mode.
The ability to pin conversations would allow users to prioritize important or frequently accessed conversations, ensuring they remain easily accessible within the chat interface.
Another sought-after feature is the ability to hear responses out loud without relying on voice input. This would provide users with an alternative means of engaging with chat messages, offering increased accessibility and convenience.

Microsoft’s Mikhail Parakhin confirms to the user, mentioning that hiding threads did not yield favorable results in their experiments due to users forgetting or experiencing difficulty in locating them. However, he assured users that the other requested features are currently being worked on “in some form.”
Hiding the threads didn't do so well in our experiments (people forget/have difficulty finding them), the rest are all being worked on in some form.

While an exact timeline has not been provided, it is reasonable to anticipate that these features will be introduced within the coming weeks or a similar timeframe.
Speaking of Bing AI chat, its competitor, Bard by Google, has been made available to users in the majority of the world. This move puts Bard in direct competition with Bing’s AI chat. Alongside its expanded global reach, Bard introduces exciting new features, including a Recent activity tab and the ability to upload images, among others.
