Microsoft’s New ChatGPT-Powered Bing Goes Live Today
On a Tuesday blog entry, Microsoft went all-in on AI-driven searches. The company launched the new AI-powered browser Bing and Microsoft Edge, which includes an AI copilot and chat feature.
Last month, Microsoft announced a multi-billion dollar partnership with OpenAI, the company that developed the AI image generator DALL-E 2 and the AI language model ChatGPT. The new search engine, working on what Microsoft has dubbed OpenAI’s “Prometheus model,” should allow users to type in a question and get a detailed, up-to-date, and annotated answer along with citations from relevant sites. The company claimed this new system is “more powerful than ChatGPT”.
There are two parts to this: the search function and the chatbot. With the new interactive chat, users can refine their search for their first prompt. The company said the new system should allow people to get a detailed itinerary of a planned vacation or a list of the best TVs to buy alongside quotes from various websites.
The new chat also has integrations similar to ChatGPT, allowing users to ask the AI to write emails for them or create a quiz. Bing has long been the subject of jokes about how irrelevant its search results were, but Microsoft claimed it “applied the AI model to our core Bing search ranking engine, resulting in the biggest increase in relevance in two decades.”
“AI will fundamentally transform every software category, starting with the biggest category of all – search,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in the blog post.

Microsoft Edge is also changing to include chat directly in the Edge sidebar. The company used the example by asking the system to compose a LinkedIn post with some prompts. Microsoft even claimed users could manipulate and further refine the tone of the content it produced. The new Edge also gives users the ability to type in content like a lengthy financial report and then force it to offer you bullet points of the top takeaways.
The new Bing search should be available in a limited preview for desktop, but users can visit Bing website to register for a waiting list. The company plans to scale up the preview release in the coming weeks and also offer a mobile preview.
