You will find three options such as search, tone, and chat. You can select an option as per your requirement. You will be able to enjoy Bing Chat AI if you proceed to install the Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard beta version.

According to Pedram Pedram Rezaei, Microsoft’s CTO of mobile and commerce, the Bing Chat AI is currently being pushed slowly. However, there is no confirmation as to when SwiftKey iOS users will be able to test drive the new capabilities.

The interesting fact is that the Windows manufacturer had discontinued support for SwiftKey on iOS in 2022 but quickly retracted it by bringing the app back to the Apple Store. Microsoft had disclosed that they will invest heavily in both Android and iOS versions.
