Microsoft’s Bing Chat is still in Preview, but the company is hard at work making it more feature-rich and reliable. Last week, the software giant added a couple of noteworthy new features to Bing Chat, improving accessibility and better cross-device support.

First off, Microsoft added a new Continue on phone feature to Bing Chat on Edge browser on desktop, allowing you to resume your AI chats on your phone. The option to continue on the phone will appear in the upper-right corner of the last chat response by hovering the mouse cursor. To be able to resume your chat session, you’ll be provided with a QR code, which you’ll scan using your phone.

However, it’s important to note that you’ll need to have Microsoft Edge or Bing mobile apps installed on your phone. Also, you need to use the same Microsoft account both on mobile and desktop. Also, you need to log in to Bing using your Microsoft account to be able to resume your sessions on the phone. Microsoft was testing the Continue on phone capability with select users last week, and it now appears to be rolling out to everyone.

Microsoft was also spotted testing Bing Chat integration into Microsoft Launcher beta. And now, after about a week, the Redmond tech giant is rolling out Bing Chat integration to all Microsoft Launcher users, helping more people to be productive. In other words, Bing Chat is now available on your Android phone home screen through Microsoft Launcher.

However, you can use Bing Bing Chat on your Android home screen without the Microsoft Launcher. All you have to do is install the Bing mobile app and pin the Bing widget on your home screen. But for those using Microsoft Launcher, you don’t need to install the Bing app separately to ask questions to ChatGPT-powered Bing Chat.

As highlighted by Microsoft, you can give feedback on how the features are working for you. Meanwhile, the software giant will keep adding new features to Bing Chat every week. Hopefully, we see significant new functionalities in Bing Chat this week.
