USA: Bing Chat will soon have a long-requested feature from Microsoft that will alter how we communicate with the chatbot on desktops. On the PC version of Edge, the AI chatbot now supports voice mode, allowing users to speak their commands aloud rather than typing them. Ask your questions out loud by tapping the microphone button on the Bing Chat box.

After deciding to stop supporting Cortana on Windows later this year, Microsoft decided to introduce voice mode to Bing Chat on desktop.
The AI chatbot will now be able to hear and respond to inquiries on PCs' Edge browser.People can use voice commands to ask questions, and the chatbot will answer back in its own voice.

Voice interaction with desktop computers hasn't received much attention outside of accessibility features. However, Bing has changed the scenario by enabling voice chat on the desktop. Voice interactions on the Edge for PCs will contribute to a more seamless user experience. In addition to providing links to websites, Bing Chat will respond to queries.

This caused it to lag behind voice-activated assistants like Siri or Google Assistant, which are more useful. Users of Bing Chat on desktops will be able to take advantage of voice support by simply clicking the microphone icon to use voice input.
