Microsoft's Bing search engine is now the default search experience for ChatGPT, thanks to their partnership with OpenAI. ChatGPT Plus subscribers will have access to the new search engine, which provides more accurate and up-to-date answers with web data and citations. A plugin will also be available soon for free users to enable Bing on ChatGPT.
Microsoft also promised to use the same open plug-in standard in the Bing chatbot that OpenAI uses for ChatGPT. This will provide interoperability between Bing Chat plugins, the Microsoft Copilot platform, and ChatGPT, as well as provide users with greater flexibility in using various GPT-4-based services.
The official announcement by Yusuf Mehdi states:
Foundational to our progress with the new Bing is our fantastic partnership with OpenAI. I’m pleased to announce we are bringing Bing to ChatGPT as the default search experience.
ChatGPT will now have a world-class search engine built-in to provide timelier and more up-to-date answers with access from the web. Now, ChatGPT answers can be grounded by search and web data and include citations so you can learn more—all directly from within chat. The new experience is rolling out to ChatGPT Plus subscribers starting today and will be available to free users soon by simply enabling a plugin which brings Bing to ChatGPT.
