Microsoft added AI to its Edge browser and Bing search engine, and it’s powered by the same advanced technology that OpenAI used to create ChatGPT. Even better, you can start using it now.
There are some preview prompts available now, and Microsoft has a ChatGPT Bing wishlist available. We’ll show you how to sign up, how you can get faster access, and how you can among the first to try the ChatGPT-powered Edge.
If you go to bing.com, you’ll see a beautiful photo background and search box just as before, and it might appear as though very little has changed.
How to join the ChatGPT Bing waitlist
If you look carefully, though, you’ll see a Chat button at the top of the page to the left of Images. If you click this button right now, you’ll probably see the message that it isn’t available yet. You have to wait until the new Bing has rolled out.
Don’t worry — you can try it out in advance with some preset samples and sign up for a waitlist to be among the first to experience the full version when it fully rolls out.
To preview the new ChatGPT-powered Bing now, go to bing.com/new in any browser, even on a MacBook, and scroll down to the Ask anything section.
From there, you can click on any of the blue boxes to select a sample question or task. For example, if you choose Write a rhyming poem, the new Bing will preload the AI with a query to write a poem for a kid that likes dogs and the ocean.
From there, you can select from other samples that appear to the left and right, or go back to the blue boxes on the previous page and choose from that list. I clicked a Tweet prompt from the left side to get this tweet announcing a sibling’s graduation.
