TRAVELLING

Try ‘the new Bing’ ahead of the official launch. How to preview the AI-powered search engine.

“The new Bing” is still invite-only, but you can preview how it works.

Since Microsoft announced a new and improved version of its search engine integrated with OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology, select users have been granted early access to test it out. There’s currently a waitlist to receive access when Microsoft rolls out Bing to more users in the coming weeks. But if you’re dying to see how it works, you can see a live demo on desktop now.

How to access the Bing preview

On the Bing homepage, you’ll see a preview right under the search bar. The preview shows a prompt in a conversational style saying, “I need to throw a dinner party for 6 people who are vegetarian. Can you suggest a 3-course menu with a chocolate dessert?” Under the prompt, click the button “Try it” to see the answer it generates.
