ChatGPT, the popular AI chatbot from OpenAI, has brought back its Bing-backed Browse the Internet feature. 

This feature allows ChatGPT to access and process information from the real world through Bing Search, providing users with more up-to-date and authoritative answers to their questions.

The Browse the Internet feature was first launched in May 2023, but was disabled a few months later due to concerns that it was allowing users to bypass paywalls and access copyrighted content. 

Interestingly, the announcement came just in time when Meta announced that it’s bringing Bing search engine for web searches experience to its new AI chatbot.

OpenAI has since implemented a number of updates to the feature, including following robots.txt and identifying user agents so sites can control how ChatGPT interacts with them.

The Browse the Internet feature is now available to Plus and Enterprise users of ChatGPT, and will be expanded to all users soon. To enable the feature, users can simply select “Browse with Bing” in the selector under GPT-4.
