Microsoft says Bing has crossed 100 million daily active users
Microsoft has announced that its Bing search engine has now surpassed 100 million daily active users. This marks a significant milestone for the company, which has been working hard to close the gap with industry leader Google.
Bing was first launched in 2009, and since then it has steadily grown in popularity. The search engine is now available in over 190 countries and supports more than 40 languages.
Microsoft says that Bing is now the second most popular search engine in the US, with a market share of 20 percent. This is up from 12 percent in 2012.
The company attributes the growth of Bing to its investment in artificial intelligence (AI). Bing has been using AI to power its search results and recommendations for several years now.
In 2018, Microsoft launched the Bing Chatbot, which uses AI to understand and respond to natural language queries. The chatbot is now available in over 50 countries and supports 10 languages.
Microsoft says that the success of the chatbot has been a major contributor to the growth of Bing. The chatbot is now used by millions of people every day, and has helped Bing to increase its daily active users by 30 percent.
The company is now working on integrating the chatbot with its Edge browser. This will allow users to search the web using natural language queries, and receive recommendations from the chatbot as they browse.
Microsoft says that the integration of the chatbot with Edge will make Bing the first search engine to offer a truly personalized experience.
The company is also working on other new features for Bing, such as a partnership with Yelp to offer restaurant recommendations, and a new flight tracker that uses AI to predict delays.
Bing has come a long way in recent years, and it is now a serious competitor to Google. The company’s investment in AI is clearly paying off, and we can expect to see even more growth from Bing in the future.
