The Canary build of Microsoft Edge now allows to generate text using AI. You can now generate paragraphs, emails, and even rewrite text using AI. It lets you choose a tone for the final text, and you are allowed to use it any number of times. This came as an addition to the compose tab in the Bing Chat sidebar. Now, you can leverage the generative AI in Edge to write error free paragraphs and cold emails from text prompt.
Generative AI as browser feature was seen in Opera. But now, Microsoft developers have also added few AI based tools to generate content and understand existing text paragraphs or any other piece using Bing AI. You just select text and then it will help you rephrase it in just a click. And this post, I will show you how to enable the AI features of Edge and use them.
How to Enable AI Writing based on GPT in Microsoft Edge
Download the Edge Canary build. Or if you have it already then you need to update it to the latest version. To be able to use AI features, you need Edge Canary version at least, 119.0.2150.0.
Open Edge Settings and then go to the language settings. Scroll down a little and you will see an option to turn on the AI text toggle. You can see that in the screenshot below.
Once you have turned this feature on, you simply need to open a website or web app that has some text field input. Type something in plain text and then try selecting it. You will now see an option to rewrite this text in a small pop-up.
Choose the rewrite option and then it will show you a pop-up UI where you can see the altered version of the selected text. In addition, you can also select a specific tone type and choose some other options.
This is pretty much it. In this way, you can now use the generative AI features of Microsoft Edge. You only need to turn it on and then use it. As a copywriter, this option will help you a lot. You can now write good quality of paragraphs and other pieces of text-based content.
If you are a regular Edge user, then I am sure you will really be excited to know that you can now generate text and rewrite using AI. Unfortunately, this feature is only available in the Canary build and only Edge insiders have access to it.
