OpenAI Rolls Out Real-Time Web Browsing Feature for ChatGPT via 'Browse with Bing'
In the AI world, staying updated with the latest information is crucial. However, ChatGPT from OpenAI had a limitation - it couldn't fetch real-time data from the web. Until now, its knowledge was stuck at what was available until September 2021, which wasn't ideal for those looking for current updates. But a new feature called ‘Browse with Bing’ is set to change this scenario.
ChatGPT Gets a Web Update Earlier this week, OpenAI announced a feature that allows ChatGPT to browse the web in real-time. Named 'Browse with Bing,' this feature enables users to seek current information on a variety of topics, whether it's the latest smartphones or new camping gear.
Previously, users had to rely on plugins to try and get current information, but these efforts were hit or miss. With 'Browse with Bing,' ChatGPT can now go directly to specific URLs or look up the latest news on upcoming gadgets, improving its utility significantly.
How to Access the New Feature For now, you'll need a ChatGPT Plus or Enterprise subscription to access this feature. Here’s how you can activate it:
- Go to settings.
- Click on Beta Features.
- Toggle on the 'Browse with Bing' option.
- Start a new chat, and you'll see the option to use 'Browse with Bing'.
With this setup, you can either ask ChatGPT to reference a specific URL for information or just ask a question and let it find the answer from the web. This feature makes tasks like writing papers or creating new content easier as ChatGPT now has access to the latest information on the web.
A Step Forward for Generative AI Although this feature is currently limited to premium subscribers, OpenAI has mentioned that it will be available to all users in the future. This addition to ChatGPT is not only a big step for OpenAI but also a significant advancement in making generative AI more useful and current. By breaking free from the limitation of outdated information, ChatGPT is now a more powerful tool for various online tasks, making the life of its users that much easier.
As AI continues to evolve, features like 'Browse with Bing' show a promising direction towards creating more user-friendly, updated, and reliable AI tools.
