ChatGPT’s so-called generative artificial intelligence (AI) interface can now search the internet for data and gather updated information in real time, its creator OpenAI said.
Until now, ChatGPT’s responses to everyday language queries have been based on a large database, the most recent of which dates back to August 2021.
This has therefore limited the relevance and comprehensiveness of the elements offered by the conversational robot that has been much talked about since its launch in November.
OpenAI had already launched this formula to pay ChatGPT subscribers in June, but suspended it after users managed to get theoretically paid content for free on the Internet.
The Browsing with Bing product launched on Wednesday is only available to paid subscribers (Plus and Enterprise services), but OpenAI says it will soon be available to all ChatGPT users.
