With the ChatGPT app on iOS, paid users can now access information surfaced by Microsoft’s Bing. In the most recent update of the appOpenAI says that subscribers who pay for the $20 per month ChatGPT Plus plan receive up-to-date information from the web.
The integration is already available as a beta for Plus users in the ChatGPT web app, which “knows when and how to surf the web to answer questions about recent topics and events.” The free version of ChatGPT, on the other hand, can only pull up information until the year 2021.
To enable web browsing with Bing in the ChatGPT app for iOS, OpenAI says you need to navigate to your settings and then the Browse option in the “New Features” section. From there, select GPT-4 in the model switcher, then click “Browse with Bing” from the drop-down list. ChatGPT currently only has an app on iOS, with one on Android coming “soon”.
