ChatGPT has been quite the rage ever since its debuted in November 2022. It has become a generic name for generative AI models and a lot of people still use OpenAI’s chatbot as their primary source for AI-generated content. However, there was one big drawback that ChatGPT has — it wasn’t ‘up to date’. The message, “I’m sorry, but as of my last knowledge update in September 2021… My information is not up to date, and I cannot provide opinions or information on products or events that have occurred after that date.” OpenAI has fixed this problem.
In a series of posts on X, OpenAI said that ChatGPT’s capabilities are no longer limited. “ChatGPT can now browse the internet to provide you with current and authoritative information, complete with direct links to sources. It is no longer limited to data before September 2021,” said the company on X. Users will see the source links in the response generated to their queries, which will give them a better idea. Till now, sources haven’t been provided by ChatGPT in response to any query.
The company also said, “Since the original launch of browsing in May, we received useful feedback. Updates include following robots.txt and identifying user agents so sites can control how ChatGPT interacts with them.”

You need to browse with Bing

As per OpenAI, browsing is available to Plus and Enterprise users today, and will be expanding to all users soon. If you want to make ChatGPT more up-to-date, then you will have to choose Browse with Bing in the selector under GPT-4. As of now, those who haven’t subscribed to ChatGPT Plus will not see this option. However, it is expected that the free users will get this functionality as well.
This is one area where ChatGPT certainly scores behind Google Bard. Google has made its chatbot more current than ChatGPT but OpenAI has now fixed that gap as well.
