Microsoft is trying in every way to capitalize on the advantage it has in the field of generative AI over the competition, and specifically over Google. The latest news, announced on the occasion of Build 2023, relates to the Bing Chat and Microsoft Copilot plugins, apps designed to expand the functionality of AI systems also on third-party services.
The Bing Chat and Microsoft Copilot plugins (a platform that will soon be exploited for the Windows 11 virtual assistant ) will use the same standard that OpenAI uses for ChatGPT, a factor that will guarantee full interoperability between the plugins of the two platforms. In short, ChatGPT, Bing Chat, and services based on Microsoft Copilot will be able to use the same plugins without too much intervention by the developers.
Bing Chat and Microsoft Copilot will use the same standard as ChatGPT for plugins
This is great news for enthusiasts and - especially - developers, as third-party plugins will not be limited to a particular platform. However, the commitment declared by Microsoft remains an agreement limited to two commercial partners linked by a billionaire investment: the news will in fact become striking if and only if the third party in the sector, Google with its Bard, agrees to adhere to the same standard.
Plugin support is essential for this type of technology, in order to make chatbots more versatile thanks to the possibility of gathering information from new sources compared to the initial training. Plugins on Bing Chat are nothing new, as those from OpenTable and WolframAlpha are already available, along with Instacart, Kayak, Klarna, Redfion, and Zillow. Also coming to the service are plugins from Bandsintown, Bohita, Cloudflare, Coupert, Fareportal, FiscalNote, Golden, Lexi Shopper, Likewise, Notable, One Word Domains, PromptPerfect, Shopify, Skyscanner, Spotify, Spotnana and Trip.com.
