As we talked about today at Build, Microsoft and OpenAI are jointly committing to support and grow the AI plugins ecosystem by embracing interoperability. This means developers can now use one platform to build and submit plugins that work across both consumer and business surfaces, including ChatGPT, Bing, Dynamics 365 Copilot, Microsoft 365 Copilot, and Windows Copilot.
As part of this shared plugin platform, Bing is adding to its support for plugins. In addition to previously announced plugins for OpenTable and Wolfram Alpha, today we’re thrilled to welcome Expedia, Instacart, Kayak, Klarna, Redfin, TripAdvisor, and Zillow to the Bing ecosystem. With plugins built right into chat, across desktop and mobile, Bing makes relevant recommendations based on your conversation. For example, you can use the OpenTable plugin to ask about restaurants or related topics. This becomes even more powerful on mobile when you’re on the go with the Bing mobile app.
We are excited for the new opportunities this creates for developers and consumers alike. More scenarios include:
With Expedia, travelers will enjoy conversational trip planning for a seamless experience to facilitate memorable travel.
With Instacart, you’ll soon be able to take the dinner menu Bing helped you plan, turn it into a shopping list, and place an order to get the ingredients delivered directly to your door from your favorite grocery retailer. You can adjust quantities and make other changes before placing the order—keeping you in control.
Kayak’s plugin will act as a virtual travel assistant, bringing some of Kayak’s most popular features to life in new and more conversational ways.
Klarna will offer a highly personalized and intuitive shopping experience by providing curated product recommendations to users who ask for shopping advice and inspiration, along with links to shop those products via Klarna’s search and compare tool.
With Redfin, you will be able to describe your ideal home in everyday terms and Bing Chat will find listings that suit your needs, saving you from searching through endless listings.
The Tripadvisor plugin will help hundreds of millions of people each month become better travelers by leveraging the world’s largest travel guidance platform.
With Zillow, you’ll have a built-in real estate expert giving your Bing search a boost with additional housing and market information.
