Microsoft Ends Bing Waitlist, Offers Free Access to GPT-4

    Microsoft has made a significant move by introducing new AI-powered features to Bing, positioning it as a potential competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT Plus subscription service.

    In a recent announcement, Microsoft unveiled a range of enhancements for its Bing chatbot and Edge web browser. The most notable change is the full accessibility of the GPT-4 model, which powers the ChatGPT Plus subscription service.

    Previously, access to the GPT-4 version of the Bing chatbot was limited to a select preview group. Now, Microsoft has opened it up to all users through the Bing app, web access, and the Edge browser.

    In addition to providing free and unrestricted access to the GPT-4 model, Microsoft also revealed plans to introduce support for multimodal outputs, chat history, and plug-ins.

    The multimodal support feature will enable the Bing chatbot to generate responses that incorporate text, images, and videos. It will also have the capability to generate charts and graphs, which could give it an advantage over ChatGPT.

    Users will now have access to their complete chat history and, for those utilizing the Edge browser, the ability to move chats to the sidebar, allowing them to continue browsing within the same tab. Microsoft has stated that this feature will be rolled out “in the near future.”

    By offering these AI-powered features and making GPT-4 accessible to all Bing users, Microsoft aims to enhance the user experience and position Bing as a competitive player in the chatbot and search engine market. As the integration of AI technology continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how Microsoft’s advancements in Bing shape the landscape of AI-driven services.
