You can also use the Compose and Insights tabs to quickly create different types of content or get insights related to the page you are viewing. Bing Chat is designed to help you discover more with less effort and have fun along the way,” Bing Chat’s response to BitPinas’ question. 

One of the most interesting facts about Bing Chat is that it uses ChatGPT technology to generate natural language responses to user queries, claiming that it uses a more advanced version of ChatGPT than the free version of OpenAI’s top product.

Technically, when users ask Bing Chat a question, it uses ChatGPT to understand their query and generate a response. The response may be a link to a web page, a piece of text, or an image.

Another good thing about this chatbot is that it includes the sources of information that it supplies to ‌users.

Tips and Tricks for Using Bing Chat

Since Bing Chat users have the choice to set the tone of responses, it is best to change the chat style according to your preferences.

Also, type the question or prompt in a specific and detailed way, using natural language. The more specific you are, the better Bing Chat will be able to understand what you are asking and provide you with an accurate answer.

Consequently, always start a new topic when asking a different question from the previous one. This will clear up the previous context and help Bing Chat not be confused with the topic. 

Review the chat answer by clicking on the thumbs-up or thumbs-down icons at the bottom of each response. If you are unsure about the accuracy of an answer, you can check the source that Bing Chat used to generate the answer. 

Common Issues and How to Solve Them

Though Microsoft announced that Bing Chat is now available to all users, there are still users who are reporting that Bing Chat cannot be accessed. To solve it, try checking if you are signed in to your Microsoft account. 

Meanwhile, if it is giving inaccurate answers, double-check if you are asking a clear and concise question, including grammar and punctuation. Or better, try rephrasing the question and ask it in a different way. 

Lastly, if you are still having trouble with Bing Chat, you can contact Microsoft support for help.
