Peer Networks UK Windows Latest Windows 11’s Bing AI rolls out for Chrome with native dark mode, Safari support next

Microsoft has finally started rolling out to Google Chrome and Safari and is also A/B testing a native dark theme for the ChatGPT-powered. We received a pop-up on Windows 11 and 10 that enabled Bing AI access in Google Chrome. Seemingly, some users have access to Bing AI in Safari too.

Bing AI, powered by ChatGPT-4, is one of the most advanced and best language models for consumers. It’s been available for Microsoft Edge users since late February, and Microsoft has now started rolling out the AI support to all browsers, including Google Chrome and Apple’s Safari.

A new pop-up has started appearing on Windows 10 or 11’s taskbar, allowing anyone to try Bing AI in Chrome. In our tests, we could access Bing AI in Google Chrome with native dark mode support. As you can see in the screenshot below, the white background switches to a black hue that matches Microsoft Edge’s new dark theme.

It is worth noting that this test of a dark mode for Bing AI and Google Chrome is not widely rolled out, with only a handful of users getting access to it.

A Microsoft source confirmed to Windows Latest that “Bing AI will arrive in Chrome and Safar in the coming days or weeks for everyone”.

No search is the next big update for Bing AI

Microsoft is actively working on a new feature called “No search” or “ChatGPT-like mode” for Bing AI, allowing users to interact with Bing faster. Currently, Bing searches the web whenever you ask the AI any question.

Unlike ChatGPT, which doesn’t have a search engine or web browsing feature, Bing AI relies entirely on the web. In most cases, Bing attempts to scrape data from multiple websites and summarize the answer from scrapped content, which could make an answer potentially less ‘human’.

Some users dislike Bing’s reliance on the search engine, and Microsoft wants to fix it.

With ‘no search’ support, Bing could behave more like ChatGPT and respond to users using its AI capabilities rather than crawling the web most of the time.

In case you missed it, Bing AI was recently updated with many new features, including visual search. Microsoft’s visual search uses OpenAI’s image recognition to describe, interpret images and provide answers related to the picture.

In a statement, Microsoft also promised Bing would remain free and the enterprise edition of Bing would operate independently.
