At Build 2023, Microsoft announced that Bing is coming to OpenAI’s ChatGPT service. ChatGPT will now have a Bing search engine built-in to provide timelier and more up-to-date answers with access from the web.
Bing will now be the default search experience in ChatGPT.
Until now, ChatGPT was only able to answer queries based on the information that was available when the model was trained. Now with this Bing integration, 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 Bing search experience is rolling out to ChatGPT Plus subscribers starting today and will be available to free users soon by enabling Bing plugin.
