ChatGPT gains live web browsing abilities to challenge Microsoft Bing AI and Google Bard
Delhi : If ChatGPT has a restriction, it is that its knowledge base is only available until September 2021. The AI chatbot will now provide the following message if you ask it a question regarding current events:
This will soon change, though, as OpenAI recently revealed that ChatGPT will soon include a web-browsing capability that would enable users to do real-time information searches. But there's a problem. Only ChatGPT Plus subscribers will have access to this feature.
ChatGPT gains web surfing capabilities
Users will also have access to ChatGPT Plugins in addition to real-time web surfing.
"If you are a ChatGPT Plus user, enjoy early access to experimental new features, which may change during development," the business writes in a note to users. Over the course of the following week, we'll be rolling out a new beta panel in your settings that will allow you to access these capabilities.
You'll be able to test out two new features once the beta panel becomes available to you:
"Web browsing: Try a new version of ChatGPT that understands when and how to search the web to respond to inquiries on current events and themes. Try a new version of ChatGPT that automatically detects when and how to utilise any third-party plugins you activate.
Microsoft's Bing and Google's Bard
Real-time online surfing is all ChatGPT has disclosed so far, but Google's Bard and Microsoft's Bing are already offering it. In an effort to revolutionise the way people conduct online research, both chatbots were released with the ability to browse the web in real-time. It's interesting to note that Bing and Bard both debuted in February of this year around the same time and have since announced updates.
While Bard can take voice inputs and will soon launch the picture production capability, Bing can produce images based on text questions.
However, Bing and Bard are facing off against one other in the internet search market. Google Search controlled the market for more than a decade. However, everything changed when the brand-new Bing with AI arrived. The competition for control of the internet search market is only going to grow more heated now that ChatGPT will also start offering real-time information soon.
