Microsoft plans to bring Bing Chat’s Compose feature to websites, which is available on the Sidebar in Edge. You can use it to easily rewrite text without opening the Sidebar. Just make a paragraph selection and ask Copilot to rewrite the draft.

This is extremely useful for creating and editing short social media and email posts. The new Inline Compose Rewrite feature on websites will be available first in Edge Canary after A/B testing.

Bing Compose is a cool feature that lets you write anything you want with the help of AI. You can use it to save time, get ideas, or have fun with your writing. You can use Compose in your daily life to write a catchy email, a funny birthday card, a summary of the latest book or movie you watched, or a review of a product or service you bought or used.

To use Compose in the Edge browser, click the Copilot button, select the Compose option in the Sidebar, and choose from different formats, tones, and lengths. Compose will generate a draft for you in seconds.
