Satya Nadella

(55), CEO of Microsoft, is striving to break Google's dominance in web searches: on Tuesday he announced an update to Microsoft's search engine Bing, which will in future be equipped with a further development of the publicly available ChatGPT program.

Users should then be able to conduct conversations with the search engine with the help of artificial intelligence (AI).

According to the US technology portal "The Verge", the company is launching the update alongside another series of new AI features for its Microsoft Edge web browser.

While the knowledge base of the currently usable ChatGPT is stuck at the status of 2021, the chat software from Bing should also know about recent events or timetables.

An important difference to ChatGP should also be that the Bing version will be able to display links to sources.

This should enable users to form their own opinion of the reliability of the answers.

Users of Microsoft's search engine Bing should be able to enter queries of up to 1000 characters in text form and get answers in full sentences in a chat.

This also applies to more complex tasks: For example, the search engine is able to roughly plan a trip.

Microsoft invested several billion dollars in OpenAI and also integrates the company's software into its office programs.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said he believes the technology will transform just about every category of software.

OpenAI boss

Sam Altman

(37) spoke of the "beginning of a new era".

In recent years, Bing has never managed to seriously compete with Google: According to Statcounter.com, Google has a market share of almost 93 percent worldwide, while Bing only has three percent.

However, Google will not give up the field without a fight to its arch-rival Microsoft, with which it competes primarily in the cloud business.

On Monday, CEO

Sundar Pichai

(50) presented the plan to gradually make his software, which has been developed for years and can talk to people, available to a broader public, including in the web search.

The Internet group has so far hesitated to publish its language software.

Both Google and Microsoft are initially only making their chat search available to a small group of users.

At Microsoft, the function is initially only available to users of the Edge web browser.
