Microsoft has introduced a new version of its Bing search engine with ChatGPT features and described it as the “AI-powered copilot for the web.” However, many are confused about how to access the Bing AI search on their computer. Therefore, in this article, let’s see how to use Microsoft Bing AI Search in Edge, Chrome, or any other browser.
What is Microsoft Bing AI Search?
Microsoft unveiled a new version of the Bing search engine with ChatGPT features. For the unaware, ChatGPT is an AI-powered chatbot developed by OpenAI based on the GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer) language model that uses deep learning and AI techniques to generate human-like responses. It is funded (or backed) by Microsoft.
In the new version of Bing search, Microsoft adds contextual searches to the search engine powered by its own version of the ChatGPT algorithm. The company will also integrate a separate dedicated chat interface for the Bing search, complete with footnoted links. Here’s more on how Bing AI works.
Bing’s new search engine version or interface is live but currently to a limited number of people, which will expand to more users in the coming days.
How Does it Work?
The new Bing search features an AI chatbot capable of giving comprehensive answers to complex search queries as they have integrated it with OpenAI’s latest AI model.
It’s optimized for rapidly fetching relevant and accurate search results without compromising user safety. The new model powers the search to deliver summarized search results that are more relevant and can even answer composite search queries.

As we mentioned earlier, there are some limitations to using the new Bing search, and as of the early stage preview, users will only be able to try preset queries.
