Microsoft is expected to launch their OpenAI-powered Office tools (Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook) by the end of Q1 2023. These tools will include AI-based features such as improved voice recognition and natural language processing capabilities, thanks to OpenAI’s capabilities. This will allow users to create a more intuitive and engaging experience.

Companies are looking to leverage OpenAI’s technology in various software applications to create a more engaging experience. Alongside Office tools, enterprise customers will have access to the Azure OpenAI Service. We have already seen similar services, such as Viva Sales and the Edge Copilot, which can write emails and blog posts for users.

This is a huge opportunity, and Microsoft is at the forefront of AI technology development, having released its first service ahead of Google. Microsoft is pushing its boundaries, as they have invested heavily in AI and are trying to make AI solutions more accessible and easier for their customers with the advancement of AI technologies.

There are reports suggesting that Microsoft’s Bing is way ahead of Google’s AI, and with the upcoming integration of AI into its productivity apps, it could really disrupt Google’s business, which includes Google Search and its Google AI-powered Bing and the Edge Copilot.

New Bing is definitely way faster, as it overcomes the limitation of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which only had a database until 2021. New Bing can access the latest information and can provide sources for the information it shows. It is much more accurate and provides faster results, as it was specifically designed for search with layers of security for the users.

Microsoft received more than 1 million registrations for the new Bing waitlist within 48 hours. Recently, the company also announced its latest integration of OpenAI with Microsoft Teams, Skype, and Bing, which is now available on mobile.

Google Bard was already announced just a day before Microsoft’s new Bing, but it’s currently in alpha testing and will take some time before Google announces beta testing for its AI search engine. Therefore, the company also lost over $100 because of its factual error in the presentation and also messed up during the AI event in Paris by Google.
