Alongside adding Copilot to Windows 11 and the Edge browser, Microsoft is also bringing the chatbot AI to the Microsoft Shopping (formerly Bing Shopping) experience to help you speed up the process of finding online products and the perfect gift for that special someone.
This version of Copilot is tailored to the Microsoft Shopping experience to help you find the best deals and products online through simple queries and follow-up questions from the assistant to help you narrow down ideas or find a specific product at the best price.
In this how-to guide, I’ll walk you through the steps to the chatbot AI shop online using any browser.
How to use Copilot to shop for online products
To leverage Copilot on Microsoft Shopping to find the right product online, use these steps:
- Open Microsoft Edge.
- Open Copilot on Microsoft Shopping (Bing).
- Compose a query using natural language in the prompt box for a product you need to buy. For example: “What are gift ideas for a female friend?”
- Answer Copilot’s questions to narrow down the idea. For instance, the assistant may ask you for more details. For example, “What is the occasion for the gift? Birthday, anniversary, graduation, Christmas, or just because?”
- Check the product ideas on the left side.
- Quick note: The first section contains sponsored results.
- Click the product to open a page overlay with details about the product, including description, price history, specifications, and related links.
- Click the Visit site button to review the product further and complete the purchase.
Once you complete the steps, the Microsoft Shopping AI assistant will help you find the best product you want at the best price possible.
If you want to open the main page again, click the “Copilot” icon at the top of the chatbot AI interface.
