At a surprise event on Tuesday, Microsoft debuted a brand new new ChatGPT-powered Bing experience.
The updated engine will be available today for everybody as a “limited preview” on desktop. You’ll have a limited number of queries that you can use with it, but you will be able to sign up for full access soon.
Available now in a “limited preview” at Bing.com, it appears the new search will provide traditional results alongside an AI chat window.
You can join the waitlist here, with priority given to Microsoft account holders.
To enable Bing’s AI-powered features, Microsoft’s working with OpenAI, the company behind the ChatGPT chatbot. However, Microsoft claims that it’s using a “next-generation OpenAI large language model” that’s even “more powerful than ChatGPT.”
According to the Verge: “With the new Bing, users can input queries up to 1,000 words long and receive annotated AI-generated answers that will appear alongside regular search results from the web. Microsoft’s also adding a way to refine these results using a new built-in chatbot on Bing.”
Microsoft announced the news just one day after Google revealed that it’s working on a similar AI-powered tool called Bard, launching a likely AI “space race” between the tech rivals.
