ChatGPT was already the power behind Bing’s chatbot. From now on, the search engine will be available in ChatGPT, to allow its users to have results “based on search data and web data” according to Microsoft.

Microsoft held its Build conference today in Seattle for Windows developers, where the Redmond company unveiled a whole bunch of AI-related features. Nothing quite as impressive as these 9 AI features announced at Google I/O 2023 that will change your life, because Microsoft’s conference was not intended for the general public, but there are still some great announcements .

Bing is part of the ChatGPT Plus premium service starting today, Microsoft said, and the search engine will also soon be integrated into the normal version of the chatbot. Using Bing will allow users to get up-to-the-minute information, when ChatGPT was only trained on data up to September 20, 2021.


This provides an effective way to connect ChatGPT to the internet without plugins, while by default the chatbot is unable to access current or up-to-date information on the web.

War is declared between Google and Microsoft on AI

Earlier this month, OpenAI added web browsing as an optional feature to the paid Plus tier. This feature already relied in part on Bing according to Bloomberg, although this was not disclosed at the time. This is therefore above all an announcement to drive the point home against its main rival Google, a week after the I/O 2023 conference.

Microsoft is the main investor and partner in OpenAI, giving it an edge in the race to integrate artificial intelligence into its software. The startup has helped Microsoft attract customers to its Azure cloud service that enables OpenAI products like ChatGPT. Azure thus has 4,500 customers among the largest companies in the world, such as Volvo, Ikea, Mercedes-Benz and Shell.

In addition, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella refocused all Microsoft products around AI co-pilots, assistants that help users perform their tasks, as well as professional finance or security software based on the GPT-4 model. from OpenAI. Google follows the same trend, so much so that it leads to serious ethical breaches.
