Microsoft’s Bing, which released an interface that makes use of GPT a month ago, has been receiving a lot of attention for the first time in 10 years. The tech giant has been careful in how quickly they have been rolling out the new Bing service which is powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology. It appears, however, that they are gradually allowing more access to it.
Microsoft, a big backer for OpenAI, appears to have removed the waiting list for the new Bing, permitting anyone to get immediate access to the new experience. Windows Central, that first noticed this alteration, declared that individuals do not have to wait any longer to try the new Bing. TechCrunch tried this out with a few different email IDs (both new and old) and were granted access straight away. Yet, not all the email IDs we tested were granted access immediately.
The Bing website still features a “Join the Waitlist” button, however, you can log in and gain entry straight away. Microsoft has not declared if they are abolishing the waitlist altogether, however they have mentioned in a press release that they are trying out a few methods to admit more users.
A Microsoft spokesman stated that during this trial period, they are conducting multiple tests which might speed up access to the new Bing for some individuals. They are still in the preview stage and people can sign up at Bing.com.
Microsoft is hosting a gathering tomorrow morning at 11 am Eastern Time entitled “Reinvent Productivity with AI.” The plan for the day is to showcase AI-enhanced tools for Microsoft Office and Dynamics 365, which competes with Salesforce. It is likely that there may also be a Bing-related announcement.
Microsoft, based in Seattle, is quickly bringing the AI-powered chatbot into its services. In the past thirty days, the GPT-4-driven bot was included in the taskbar of Windows 11. Additionally, the stable version of the Edge browser recently attained the Bing AI chatbot attribute.
OpenAI’s technology has proven to be successful for Bing, which recently reported having 100 million daily users. This is understandable considering the enthusiasm that AI-driven chatbots have generated and the amount of people who have tried it out. After people were able to “hack” the chatbot into saying controversial statements, Microsoft began administering different regulations on the conversations. This week, the limit was increased to up to 15 interactions and 150 messages per day.
Microsoft released a statement updating the story.
