At its Redmond headquarters, it showcased how the search engine is responsive via complete answers and provides via a chat interface the ability to compose text. This text has the option to set the sound tone as “Professional”, “Casual”, “Enthusiastic”, “Informational” or “Funny”. Also, the output generated text can be formatted as “Paragraph”, “Email”, “Blog Post” or “Ideas”, with a Length selection of the draft of “Short”, “Medium” or “Long”.
Behind this engine is a newer version of the ChatGPT large language model.
