ChatGPT set a new standard for conversational AI, but paying $20 per month for ChatGPT Plus puts it out of reach for many. Thankfully, Microsoft’s Bing Chat just received a major update that brings it up to par with ChatGPT’s key features, and it’s completely free to use.
Interpreting Images Better than Humans
Just give the guess by just seeing the image below without reading the reply.
One of ChatGPT’s most futuristic and practical abilities is understanding images and answering detailed questions about them. Now Bing Chat matches and even exceeds this skill.
Upload any image or provide a link, and Bing will examine it to comprehend the contents. Ask it about people, objects, text, colors, layouts, aesthetics, implied meaning, and more. The detail and insightfulness of its responses are remarkable.
Give it a photo of a street scene and ask “What year does this appear to be from based on the vehicles and architecture?” or “What is happening in this photo?” It’s shocking how situational and context-aware its answers can be.
There is an AI tool available that enables you to upload multiple documents and gives answers. This cannot be done on ChatGPT, Bard, or even Bing Chat. Read this post for further information regarding the AI tool.
Generating Code from Images
But Bing takes visual comprehension even further. It can now generate code just by looking at an image of an interface or design.
Simply send it a screenshot of a webpage, app screen or other UI. Ask it to reproduce the layout in HTML and CSS, or in another coding language. Bing will identify all the visual components present and output remarkably accurate code to recreate a similar-looking result.
This makes mocking up or prototyping basic interfaces as easy as taking a screenshot, without needing to manually write any of the underlying code.

Bing Chat On the Go with Mobile
Bing Chat is available directly within the Bing mobile apps on iOS and Android, unlike ChatGPT which lacks mobile support. This means you can use the image features seamlessly on your phone.
Just take a photo with your phone’s camera, upload it in the Bing app, then ask your question. Or provide a link to any image online. It’s simple to get visual AI capabilities on the go.
If you are an Android user, you have an extra benefit. You can use all these features, along with some unique features on your keyboard. Check it out.
More Benefits Over ChatGPT
On top of visual intelligence, Bing Chat matches several other key advantages of ChatGPT, all for free:
- Conversation History – It remembers your earlier dialog which provides helpful context, an area where ChatGPT still struggles.
- Voice Input – You can speak questions and requests out loud, and Bing will respond conversationally via voice. Great for hands-free use.
- Faster Innovation – As an active Microsoft product, Bing Chat receives frequent ongoing updates, while ChatGPT improvements come slowly.
Bing Chat brings the core innovations of ChatGPT like visual intelligence and conversational context into a free product that keeps getting better. While ChatGPT is an impressive technology demonstration, Bing Chat delivers key features today, accessible to all.
