After having a successful campaign with its native browser, Microsoft is rolling out Bing Chat to Google Chrome and Apple Safari browser this week.
Available to a small set of testers, the Bing Chat on Chrome or Safari is limited in terms of the number of characters you can fill in and the number of questions you can ask. Once the limit is breached, Bing Chat will prompt you to brush down the entire session to start a new one afresh.
Bing Chat on Chrome and Safari
Microsoft’s grand partnership with OpenAI helped the company advance in the AI race, as Redmond is cooking OpenAI’s GPT model in most of its products. The biggest of all these is in the Edge browser, where Bing Chat is seen as a highly resourceful tool for the browser.
Thus, Microsoft is now bringing this success to rival browsers, viz Chrome and Safari, this week. As noted by Windows Latest, Microsoft is rolling out Bing Chat to select users on Chrome and Safari, so you should wait if you don’t see it already.
To the available ones, head to the Bing website on Chrome or Safari to find the new “Chat” icon – which will open the Bing Chat window, similar to that on Edge. Users can enter anything they want in the prompt and choose a conversation style.
While it’s all good and exciting, Microsoft limits the accessibility of Bing Chat in third-party browsers, where users on Chrome or Safari can only type up to 2,000 characters to fill a prompt. In comparison, it’s 4,000 characters in Edge browser. Also, the number of questions you can ask in a session of Bing Chat on Chrome or Safari is limited to just five – versus 30 questions on Edge.
Once you reach the threshold, Bing Chat will ask you to wipe out the session with the “broom” button and start afresh! This aside, Microsoft has also added dark mode for Bing Chat, letting users swap to a new colour scheme through the Appearance menu.
