Chatbot ChatGPT AI just got more powerful. Now it’s officially receiving a search on the web and is supposed to take the Dall-E 3 text-to-image generator to a new level. Browse with Bing leaves beta.
With Browse with Bing, OpenAI has officially launched ChatGPT’s web browsing feature from beta. Real-time search can now do much more than before.
Previously, this search was limited to data up to September 2021 – and therefore unusable as a real-time search engine. In March, OpenAI began integrating Internet services into ChatGPT.
In May, OpenAI introduced web search through Bing. At the end of June, access to the ChatGPT mobile app was expanded. However, the new feature was withdrawn when ChatGPT started offering paid web content.
A several-month hiatus followed, during which OpenAI modified Bing’s browsing feature so that ChatGPT would follow content owners’ instructions. It was basically just a matter of following the website owner’s information in their Robots.txt file.
Browsing with Bing is now officially available again to all Plus and Enterprise subscribers without having to hit the beta toggle in Settings.
In this context, OpenAI has also moved DALL-E 3 into beta a month after introducing the latest version of its text-to-image generator. Dall-E 3 is now integrated with ChatGPT, which makes generating the text prompts required to create images much easier.
One small side effect is that users can now also receive images as part of their text queries without having to switch between apps.
All of these changes should be seen as part of a broader expansion. OpenAI technology moves ChatGPT away from purely text generators and incorporates other media to make the chatbot more universal.
Last month, OpenAI gave ChatGPT a voice and ears, so users can now have a verbal conversation with the chatbot. In the future, ChatGPT will also allow users to search for answers using images. For example, we can upload a photo of an object to see what it is – like Google Lens, only powered by AI.
Current innovations show that ChatGPT will be expanded into a full-fledged, multimedia, real-time generator search engine in the first step.
