Microsoft’s collaboration with OpenAI has been something of a turning point for both companies; mostly Microsoft. Powered by ChatGPT, the company’s Bing search and Edge browser have become a lot more capable in the past couple of months. And now, Microsoft has integrated OpenAI’s DALL-E AI image generator into Bing and Edge to make them even more powerful.

Bing and Microsoft Edge with DALL-E

The new “Bing Image Creator” is currently in preview for Bing and Edge users. According to Microsoft, it will first be available in Bing’s “Creative Mode” and will eventually be fully integrated into Bing’s chat experience. You can access it on Edge by clicking on the Bing Image Creator icon in the sidebar.

As a result, users will now be able to generate images based on their text queries right from Microsoft-made tools. Interestingly, the company says it has used an advanced version of the DALL-E model for this.

Microsoft has also implemented additional safeguards in addition to the ones from OpenAI. It will prevent you from creating potentially dangerous images, and it also includes watermarks in images generated by AI to keep things transparent.

AI-powered visual stories and knowledge cards

Likewise, Microsoft has brought “Stories” and “Knowledge Cards 2.0” to all Bing users. In case you’re unfamiliar, Knowledge Cards 2.0 is an AI-powered infographic-inspired experience that provides fun facts and key information at a glance, whereas stories display images and short videos that are linked to content.

In related news, Microsoft announced last week that it would integrate its generative AI technology into some of its most popular business apps, including Word, PowerPoint, and Excel too.
