Microsoft-backed OpenAI Announces Web Browsing for ChatGPT Users, Extending Data Access Beyond September 2021 Cutoff

OpenAI, with Microsoft’s support, has unveiled a new feature allowing ChatGPT users to browse the web, thereby expanding the chatbot’s access to data beyond the previous cutoff date of September 2021. This development enables websites to have control over ChatGPT’s interactions with their content.

The browsing feature is currently accessible to Plus and Enterprise users, with plans to make it available to all users in the near future. To activate it, simply select ‘Browse with Bing’ from the dropdown menu under GPT-4,” OpenAI announced on the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter).

In a recent update, the startup also unveiled a significant enhancement, enabling ChatGPT to engage in voice conversations with users and interact through images, bringing it closer in functionality to widely used AI assistants like Apple’s Siri.

Previously, OpenAI had experimented with a feature within its premium ChatGPT Plus offering, granting users access to real-time information through the Bing search engine. However, due to concerns about potential paywall circumvention, this feature was subsequently disabled

ChatGPT achieved a historic milestone earlier this year, becoming the fastest-growing consumer application in history by garnering 100 million monthly active users in January. However, it was later overtaken by Meta’s Threads app.

This surge in popularity has sparked heightened investor interest in OpenAI. As reported by Reuters on Tuesday, the startup is currently engaged in discussions with shareholders regarding a potential sale of existing shares at a significantly higher valuation compared to just a few months ago.

OpenAI made another significant announcement last week when it introduced Dall-E 3, the most recent iteration of its text-to-image tool. This tool utilizes ChatGPT to enhance prompt responses. OpenAI is set to make Dall-E 3 accessible to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise subscribers through the API, starting in October. Users will have the capability to input image requests and refine prompts through interactive conversations with ChatGPT.

OpenAI also emphasized that content creators have the option to opt out of having their work utilized for training future text-to-image tools, either in part or in full.
