OpenAI has unveiled an exciting addition to its ChatGPT app, allowing mobile users to harness the power of web search. However, the functionality is currently limited to Bing.

In a recent announcement, OpenAI shared that subscribers to ChatGPT Plus, the premium version of their AI-driven chatbot, can now utilize the "Browsing" feature on the ChatGPT app. This feature enables ChatGPT to search Bing for answers to a wide array of questions.

To enable Browsing, simply navigate to the app settings and locate the New Features section. From there, you can choose "GPT-4" in the model switcher and select "Browse with Bing" from the drop-down menu. It's worth noting that Browsing is accessible on both the iOS and Android versions of the ChatGPT app.

OpenAI emphasizes that Browsing is particularly beneficial for inquiries pertaining to current events and topics that extend beyond the confines of ChatGPT's original training data. Without enabling the Browsing feature, ChatGPT's knowledge remains confined to information available only until 2021.

The introduction of Browsing, initially announced as a joint effort between Microsoft and OpenAI for release on the web, significantly enhances ChatGPT's utility as a virtual assistant, especially when it comes to research-related tasks. Previously, queries like "Who won the 2023 March Madness women's tournament?" would yield limited or inaccurate results.

However, confining ChatGPT's search capabilities to Bing may raise concerns among users. While the business partnership between OpenAI and Microsoft, involving a substantial investment of over $10 billion, provides clear motivations for this decision, it leaves users without alternative search engine options.

Past analysis has indicated potential bias in Bing's search results, favoring Microsoft-related content over Google links. Furthermore, a recent Stanford study highlighted an "alarming" presence of disinformation in Bing's top search results.

Undoubtedly, Microsoft is continuously working to enhance Bing's algorithms. Nonetheless, the drawback of ChatGPT's new Browsing feature is that when Bing inevitably falls short, users will have no alternative search engines to turn to.

In other ChatGPT app news, aside from the controversial Bing integration, OpenAI has introduced the convenient functionality of directly accessing relevant points in conversations by tapping on search results. This user-friendly change, alongside the Browsing feature, is set to roll out this week, according to OpenAI's announcement.
