ChatGPT is about to get a whole lot better.

OpenAI, the company behind the AI ​​chatbot, has announced that it will be rolling out new features for ChatGPT Plus users this week.

Users who pay for ChatGPT Plus, which uses the GPT-4 model, will have access to a web browsing feature that will provide up-to-date information.

Web browsing has the potential to be a game changer – particularly in making ChatGPT a promising search engine.

Prior to the update, ChatGPT was limited to what it could answer, as it was only trained on data through 2021. This made it useless when it came to information about current events and real-time developments.

Using ChatGPT’s web browser, users can ask several specific questions—such as who won the Academy Award for Best Actor, Soundtrack, and Picture this year—and the bot will summarize the answer, along with as many news articles as it deems relevant in a matter of seconds. . If it does not provide the desired result, the user can demand a more accurate answer.

This news comes as users seem to be increasingly dissatisfied with Google’s search engine. Some users took to Reddit to complain about it, saying that Google is “terrible for Internet discovery,” “has become terrible for interesting micro-queries,” and “returns endless lists and marketing.”

ChatGPT Plus users will also have access to over 70 third-party plugins for web services such as Expedia, Kayak, and Instacart. With these plugins, users will be able to ask ChatGPT to perform tasks on specific websites.

An OpenAI rendering of its OpenTable and Instacart plugins, for example, shows a user looking for vegan food in San Francisco. The user asks ChatGPT to suggest “one great restaurant” for Saturday and “simple recipe” for Sunday. Within seconds, the plugin recommends a restaurant and creates a chickpea salad recipe, including a list of groceries ready to order on Instacart.

ChatGPT’s new features have the potential to make life easier for millions of users. Before the announcement, users flocked to the chatbot to increase their work productivity, improve dating profiles, and get tips on losing weight. With the plug-ins, users will now be able to plan summer vacations, find online shopping deals, and discover new restaurants on existing platforms, according to OpenAI.

ChatGPT Plus users will be able to use these features by clicking on their ChatGPT profile, pressing Settings, and then going to the Experimental Features tabs.

The news comes just days after Google announced that it would make Bard, its ChatGPT competitor, available in 180 countries. The search giant also announced that it will launch an AI-powered search engine and integrate generative AI features across existing workspace tools that can craft Gmail emails, analyze data on spreadsheets, and more.

The widespread access to OpenAI and Google’s new AI tools indicates that the AI ​​wars are still heating up as big Rech companies compete to make the most powerful, easy-to-use AI.
