A similar approach is seen to be adopted in Microsoft’s web browser called Edge. While Edge browser is trying hard to get back the position of the company’s veteran browser Internet Explorer, it has got a new feature. What is that? well, we bring you an introduction to Bing Chats.
In today’s post, we are going to check what is Bing chat, chatGPT vs Bing chat, and the benefits of Bing chat. Without further due let’s begin with it.
What is Bing Chat?
The Bing search engine launched in 2009, and ever since it launched, it has been trying to overcome the dominance of the Google search engine. Over time, every now and then the Tech Giant is adding new features to its browser. Bing chat is one of the new AI feature recently Microsoft has added to its Chromium-based Edge browser. This feature is added as a dedicated icon button in the browser. You can find the icon in the top right corner of the Edge browser.
The Bing chat is Microsoft’s effort to make web searching easy. Bing chat was first introduced in February 2023, which is 2 months later when Open AI’s chatGPT became the talk of the globe among youth. The initiative of Tech Giant was to integrate the AI chatbot within the browser interface, unlike open AI’s chatGPT. Though chat is not only limited to Edge browser, it is available as a standalone Android and iOS app. You can install the Android app here, and the iOS app here.
Bing chat vs chatGPT
Open AI’s chatGPT and Bing chatbot both are based on Large Language Processing Models (LLMs) which is GPT. Microsoft company has invested around 10 billion in the Open AI project as per the reports here. This means that Microsoft did have plans when they were investing in the project from the beginning. ChatGPT has been a very famous web tool available today, but it has gone premium in February 2023 introducing GTP 4 model.
chatGPT is free especially the GTP version 3.5 which has the information fed up to the year 2021. This limits the chatGPT free version and there is a slight issue in accessing the information if the pool goes high, the availability lowers. This is not the case with Microsoft’s Bing chat, the service is available across multiple platforms, let it be the Edge browser or Android and iOS in app format respectively.

The Bing chat is in its learning phase and thus, it has its own limitations like 50 questions per 5 sessions. However when we checked, if the AI decides it can not serve further, it stops you there and suggests you start over. This is in contrast to Open AI’s free version, which does bear longer than Bing chat. The last thing about Bing Chat is that it is funded by advertisements. This means the chatbot can show you advertisements when you search or seek something through it. The company said it does reserve the right to suspend the feature for an individual trying to achieve something not legitimate or misuse it.
