  • You no longer need to wait in line to access Bing Chat.
  • After signing up to preview the service, you’ll unlock the access immediately.

Microsoft is reportedly removing the waitlist to access the new Bing Chat AI early. Since the company initially made its version of ChatGPT available as a preview for testers, you had to sign up to join the waitlist. However, that’s no longer the case.

According to a new report from Windows Central, the company has now removed the waitlist. This means that you still need to sign up, but you will unlock the access to the Bing Chat powered by GPT-4 immediately without any wait.

If you still don’t have access to the new Bing with ChatGPT integration, you need to open the Bing.com/new page, click the “Join waitlist” button, and sign up with your Microsoft account. Immediately after the registration, you will receive an email confirming access to the chatbot and the features.

Once you receive the confirmation, you can open Bing.com/Chat, where you can interact with the chatbot using natural conversation language to ask complex questions. At the time of this writing, Microsoft has once again increased the limit to up to 15 questions per session and up to 150 sessions per day.

Furthermore, Microsoft Edge has recently received an update that brings the new Bing experience directly into the browser. The new feature allows you to access the Bing Chat AI to ask complex questions. In addition, you will find a “Compose” tab that can help you quickly generate different types of content (such as emails, paragraphs, articles, and ideas) with only a few parameters. And there’s even a “Insights” section that surfaces related content in context to the page you’re viewing on the web.

The change to access the new search experience comes shortly after OpenAI announced the release of the new GPT version 4, which Microsoft then confirmed to be the version it has been using with the new Bing Chat AI since day one. Also, the waitlist is lifted a day before the software giant plans to hold a new event to reveal the AI features coming to the Office suite of apps, including Teams, Word, and Outlook.
