However, the integration goes beyond keyboard apps. This is because SwiftKey can be used with all his Android apps from third parties such as Google’s Chrome browser, Gmail, Facebook, etc.
Just start typing text in third-party apps. SwiftKey pops up an icon that leads to Bing with ChatGPT. A window will open on top of your Android app, allowing you to ask your question in Bing Chat. There is also a button next to each reply that allows you to copy the answer from the chatbot and paste it into a 3rd party Android app.
At a time when Microsoft primarily restricted chatbot access to the Edge browser on desktop and mobile, this integration further expands Bing Chat’s reach. On the downside, you can only access the SwiftKey integration if Microsoft has already invited you to the Bing Chat preview.
