The first update is the addition of three modes: Balanced, Creative and Precise. These modes allow users to choose how they want Bing Chat to interact with them, whether they prefer more informative, visual, logical and actionable responses (Balanced), more creative, entertaining and engaging responses (Creative), or more accurate, concise and factual responses (Precise).

The second update is the ability to generate images in the Creative and Precise modes, using a generative image query. The integration of DALL-E 3 will result in a significant improvement in the overall quality of the image generators. Users can request Bing Chat to create or draw an image based on their input, such as “a dragon” or “a sunset”. Bing Chat will then use its image creator to produce a relevant and original image that can be displayed in the chat box. These updates demonstrate Bing Chat’s versatility and intelligence as a chat mode of Microsoft Bing search.
