Here’s how to unlock the true power of Bing with ChatGPT

Microsoft's Bing search engine incorporates OpenAI's ChatGPT technology, resulting in a new search engine that has conversational capabilities. The updated Bing functions like a chatbot with extensive internet access. Users can input their query into a text box, allowing Bing to gather information and provide a synthesized answer. By leveraging the powerful training of large language models, the ChatGPT-enabled chatbot can deliver the response in a conversational tone, complete with links to relevant sources and recommendations for further inquiries.

Here’s how to unlock the true power of Bing with ChatGPT

However, there may be instances where the generated answer may be incorrect or confusing. This can be attributed to the recent integration of ChatGPT with Bing, which is currently in its initial stages of rollout to the public. Microsoft is in the process of fine-tuning the system as it gradually invites more users to test the updated Bing.

Despite the appearance of being an artificial intelligence, Bing with ChatGPT is actually a collection of algorithms that aims to simulate the experience of conversing with a human being. The technology achieves this by utilizing its training in natural language synthesis to produce grammatically correct sentences. In essence, the ChatGPT chatbot creates responses by attempting to write the next appropriate word or phrase, based on its analysis of a vast amount of online text. It does not generate answers; instead, it gathers data from the internet and contextualizes it by constructing text that imitates human speech.

Therefore, the Bing with ChatGPT experience is different from the traditional search engine approach of entering a few keywords and receiving a list of results. The introduction of ChatGPT to Bing is part of a larger trend in the search engine industry, as Opera and Google are launching their own search AI assistants, which may lead to a significant shift in the way people use search engines.

Bing is better with Edge

Microsoft is offering a more advanced version of the new Bing within its Edge browser, featuring a Bing button in the top-right corner which opens Edge's "Discover" sidebar, allowing users to ask Bing questions or get help with tasks. This feature is currently only accessible within Edge, and not available on the regular version of Edge that comes with Windows 11. This move is a strategic attempt by Microsoft to increase Edge's usage, but it is unlikely that competing browsers will offer a similar level of Bing functionality. Currently, this new feature is only available to users who have been granted access to the new Bing and are using an Edge Insider build.

By signing up for free using a Microsoft account, users can choose to download a version of Edge from the Beta, Dev, or Canary channels, each differing in how often they are updated and how stable they are. Once a user gains access to Bing with ChatGPT, they can download one of these Edge builds to access the new Bing button, which opens a sidebar with three subsections: Chat, Compose, and Insights.

The Edge-embedded version of Bing introduces new features that allow users to interact with search results in ways not possible with the web version. Bing can scan the current web page to answer questions and provide natural language responses. For instance, users can ask if a particular product is available at a lower price elsewhere, and Bing will search for it and respond accordingly. 

The Compose feature lets users command Bing to write a list of prices for the product at different retailers, or compose an email to the office supply manager recommending a bulk order of the product. The Insights tab provides data on the source of traffic to the page and where people typically go after viewing it. These features are currently only available to Edge users who have access to the Bing with ChatGPT feature.

The accuracy, originality, and usefulness of the data generated by the Bing with ChatGPT integration remain uncertain as Microsoft strives to enhance the tool. At present, the new Bing is only accessible through Edge or Edge Dev with a Microsoft account that has the authorization to use the feature.

For those already utilizing Bing with ChatGPT, downloading Edge could enhance productivity further. Obtaining an Insider build of Edge and installing it on your computer is a quicker and more rewarding process than waiting for approval to access the new Bing.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
