Microsoft has announced an upgraded version of its Bing search engine and Edge browser that integrates the ChatGPT chatbot.
Microsoft calls it the „new Bing,“ and it will have chat functionality where people can ask questions and receive answers in natural language. It uses an updated version of GPT 3.5 called the „Prometheus Model,“ which offers more up-to-date information with annotated answers. Examples demonstrated at Microsoft’s event included searches for recipes, travel tips, furniture shopping, and more.
Microsoft says the new Bing will be live today „for limited desktop preview,“ with users able to try a limited number of queries and sign up for full access in the future.
