AI continues to be a dominant topic in the digital world. Microsoft announced that they are releasing two new features or projects that will take advantage of the heavy demand that they are facing for Bing AI chat. They say a 100 million daily active users are using chat. I mean, people who never heard of Bing or never used Bing are starting to use it, including me. And they want to take advantage of it. And they also want to use this to increase traffic to the publishers. So first thing they’re launching is if somebody sees a particular link that pops up as part of the search, when the user hovers over it in the chat box, they will see additional links so they can get extra traffic from that search. And they’re also launching a revenue sharing model, which helps the publisher earn revenues. We will link to all the details related to these two interesting announcements from Microsoft.
