Interestingly, there was no reference of Microsoft’s Bing search engine in the announcement, despite reports that it’s set to be improved with chatbot functionality soon, perhaps as quickly as March.
The Information, the source that at first reported the rumor, had formerly mentioned that Microsoft was preparing to incorporate OpenAI’s innovation into its current software application. Today’s main statement from Microsoft validates that this is indeed the case.
This supports the idea that Bing might quickly use ChatGPT to offer search engine result.
With the current news that Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have actually given the go-ahead to integrate chatbot innovation into Google, competitors is brewing to see which company will be the very first to launch this function to the marketplace.
