Bing Enterprise Chat enabled by default for all

There are a lot of great things happening in the generative AI space these days. Microsoft is determined to be a part of this revolution, and they have announced a lot of coming services. One of the new features that was released a few weeks ago was the Bing Chat Enterprise (BCE) which is a new feature that enables your organization to use AI-powered chat for work while keeping your user and business data protected.  BCE is available in preview to Microsoft 365 customers with E3, E5, A3, A5 (faculty only), Business Standard and Business Premium licenses, but not to customers in government clouds.  At first BCE was an opt-in feature, but it is now turned on by default for eligible customers who have not previously opted out of it. Should your organization want to opt-out of BCE, it is possible to do so through the BCEAdmin panel   BCE and Bing Chat might seem similar, but Bing Chat does not offer commercial data protection and should only be used for personal use. BCE will now be availa

OneDrive makes it easier to find relevant files

Microsoft OneDrive is getting a facelift these days, and two of the new features I am excited about are the way OneDrive will make it easier to find relevant documents in connection to meetings or your contacts. These are listed as two separate features, but I think they should be mentioned together. 

The meeting feature has started rolling out in preview, but should be rolling out to standard release at the end of August and hopefully be available to all by the end of October.

The "browse by people" feature will be rolling out separately, but over a similar timeframe.
Please note that a user will only see documents otherwise available to them. A "User A" will not see documents from "User B" unless they have already been shared with "User A". Either directly or through a library available to "User A"

Another way to find documents in the future, will be just by looking at a User's contact card. "Item insights" is rolling out in August, and will start showing documents "User A" and "User B" are collaborating on. By looking at the contact card of "User A", "User B" can identify which documents "User A" has updated or added notes to. The Insight feature can be turned on/of by following the steps in the official documentation. This feature is also rolling out in August to most organizations.
