Microsoft announces new tools integrated with Artificial Intelligence for its search engine – Bing and browser Edge. The latest addition of tools from Microsoft for its search engine and browser will help users who shop online regularly. These tools will get embedded in the sidebar of the Microsoft Edge browser.
However, there were similar features brought on Edge for shopping needs, and users haven’t hugely embraced them. The AI tools aim to make the shopping experience better while purchasing anything from online stores. More recently, the tech giant has brought many new features to its Bing AI chat box, which includes Voice search and support for many languages.
Microsoft AI-Powered Shopping Tools Include Buying Guides, Reviews, and Price Match Features
The Microsoft Bing AI integrated search engine, and chatbot was made available to the public in May. Since its rollout, people have used the chatbot extensively, and Microsoft has relentlessly made efforts to bring new features to offer much more. This time, the AI tools for shopping will help users to make decisions while purchasing with Buying guides, Reviews, and Price matches.
The Buying Guides provided by Bing using AI will curate a personalized guide according to the user’s recent searches. If there’s a need for “Back to School supplies” for the users, the guide will take the help of the search term. Then, Bing will provide categories, comparing tables and product suggestions. The feature will show up in the sidebar of the edge and will be available for the United States as of now and later to other countries.
The next tool would include Review summaries where users can read and do their research about the particular product. The tool will offer multiple reviews and excludes products and brands that are not up to the mark. The summary will get generated by analyzing all the aspects and online reviews provided by online users and publishers. This feature will roll out this week worldwide on Bing.
The last feature of the newly announced AI tool for Bing and Microsoft Edge includes the Price match. The feature will let you monitor the price of a specific product after you have selected it for purchase. It’ll help you check for a price match and let you know when the price drops significantly. Both price comparison and history features come embedded with the Edge browser, and the feature is already available in select countries.
