In order to give users more rapid and current responses, OpenAI plans to integrate Bing as the ChatGPT’s default search engine. Prior to becoming accessible to all free users via a ChatGPT plug-in, this feature will initially only be offered to ChatGPT Plus users. The action, which comes after Microsoft’s large investment in OpenAI, is considered as a win for Bing, especially in light of Samsung’s recent choice to keep Google as its default search engine.
