Microsoft Edge gets Dall-E Image Creator, Drop Tool and more from Bing: All the details
Microsoft recently integrated an AI-powered image generator using DALL-E technology into its Bing chatbot. Now the tech giant has widely rolled out the AI tool called Bing Image Creator on desktops for Edge users. The new tool, laid out in the sidebar of the Edge browser, would allow users to create images based on their text prompts, and the image creator offers four different image options to choose from. Microsoft has also added other new features to Edge, including a drop tool that lets users access any content they want to share with themselves and a new efficiency mode that shows battery performance.
Microsoft announced the launch of new features for its Edge browser via a blog post on Thursday. As mentioned earlier, OpenAI’s DALL-E based AI image generator is now available for all Edge users on desktop. This feature creates images based on text prompts and can be accessed directly from Microsoft Edge’s sidebar. Based on the prompt, the new image creator offers four different image options to choose from. After selecting an image, users can download it and add it to their document or upload it to social media. First-time users must activate the Image Creator by clicking “+‘ icon in the Edge sidebar. Microsoft Edge is said to be the first and only browser with an integrated AI image generator.
In addition, Microsoft Edge has added a new Drop feature. This allows users to share photos, notes, documents and more between devices in one thread. This functionality is available on Edge on PC, Mac, iOS and Android. The drop feature can be accessed from the sidebar or by drag-and-drop to add content.
Additionally, Microsoft Edge has gained another feature that allows users to edit and save web images without using any additional tools or apps. Users could crop web images, adjust lighting and color, and add filters from the browser itself. The edited image can be saved for later use without leaving the browser window.
Additionally, Microsoft has improved the Edge Efficiency Mode feature in the latest version to offer better battery life and more control over how the device uses power. With the latest update, the laptop minimizes power consumption when users are not interacting with the browser.
