The best part is unlike the version on Microsoft Edge, you can share images, and voice notes with Bing AI to get a response. There is also no prompt limit as of now.

Method 5- Enable Bing Chat on Chrome by Default (MacOS)

The extensions mentioned above modify the current user agents to get Bing Chat to work on Chrome. This can also be performed with a basic Terminal command which will launch Chrome with a different user agent. This will trick Bing AI into working on Chrome. Here are the steps to do so.

Step 1: Press Command + Spacebar on your Mac to launch Spotlight Search.

Step 2: In the search box, type Automator and open the app.

Step 3: In Automator, click on New Document.

Step 4: Next, select Application and then click on Choose to confirm.

Step 5: In the search bar above, type shell.

Step 6: Double-click on the result Run Shell Script.

This will open a shell box on the right side.

Step 7: Copy the command below and paste it in the shell box,

open -n -a “Google Chrome” –args “https://www.bing.com/search?q=Bing+AI&showconv=1&FORM=hpcodx” –user-agent=”Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/112.0.0.0 Safari/537.36 Edg/112.0.0.0″

Step 8: Click on Run to test the script. It should open Chrome with the Bing AI chat page.

The command opens Chrome with Microsoft Edge user agents to fool Bing’s website.

But it seems like Microsoft has patched this method, as in our tests, Bing did not allow us to use the AI chatbot.

Method 6- Enable Bing Chat on Chrome by Default (Windows)

You can perform the same spoofing method on Chrome for Windows. This requires you to change the user agent on Chrome using Inspect Element. This will trick Bing into thinking it is running on Chrome and allow us to use Bing Chat. Let’s take a look at the steps for this process.

Step 1: Open Chrome on your Windows PC.

Step 2: Press F12 or Right click on the new tab page and select Inspect.

Step 3: Click on the three-dot menu as shown in the image below.

Step 9: Head over to Bing.com to use the Bing AI chatbot.

When we tried to use Bing Chat with this method, it prompted us to Download Edge which means this method has also been patched by Microsoft. But you can try it for yourself.
