OpenAI announced the availability of its ChatGPT for iOS users last month. The company has now revealed that its chatbot will also be able to access the internet through Bing Search, expanding its capabilities even further.
Currently, the new function is only accessible to ChatGPT Plus subscribers, who pay a $20 monthly subscription fee. The release states that users can now use Browsing to obtain detailed answers and up-to-date information on news and events that go beyond the model’s initial training data.
Users must enable Browsing in the “new features” settings area in order to test it out. Then select “Browse with Bing” from the drop-down option after selecting GPT-4 in the model switcher. Finally, users are able to get above the 2021 knowledge cutoff for chatbots. Earlier, ChatGPT plugins were added to the browser interface to accomplish this.
Additionally, the organization has improved search history. Users can now more easily and conveniently browse their previous conversations. While OpenAI’s site promises ChatGPT for Android users, there is currently no ChatGPT software for Android users to download yet.
Furthermore, users will be able to create and share ChatGPT discussions using shared links, according to a statement from OpenAI. The chat can be viewed or copied by the recipients if they want to continue it. The next several weeks will see the rollout of this feature to all users, which is currently undergoing Alpha testing with a small sample of users.
