How to use Bing AI in Google Chrome
Bing AI is an upgraded version of Microsoft's search engine combined with ChatGPT. Bing provides more personalized and interactive results through its chatbot.
Obviously, you'll need Bing to use Bing AI, but that's not all. Bing AI is only available if you access the search engine through Microsoft Edge.
AI integration might be enough to convince you to use Bing occasionally for now. However, much more is needed to fully migrate to Edge. If you want to use a different browser such as Chrome, here's how you can get the most out of both tools.
How to use Bing AI in Google Chrome
Available only through Microsoft Edge is probably the biggest hurdle for most people when it comes to accessing Bing AI. Most Chrome users haven't touched Microsoft Edge for a long time, and no matter how good the new Bing AI is, it's not very appealing if it's not in Google Chrome.
But things don't have to be like that. You can trick Bing AI into thinking you are using Microsoft Edge and access it using any other browser.
Whenever you visit a website online, Bing checks your user agent to decide what content it should present. User agent is a string that includes the type of browser you are using and your operating system.
In the case of Bing, you can manually override your user agent and import Microsoft Edge instead. This way, Bing will think that you are using Edge and show you the Bing AI. Here are a few different ways to use the user agent and use Bing AI in Chrome:
1. Tweaking User Agents in DevTools
One way to tune the user agent is through the network conditions in Chrome's DevTools. Changing the user agent to Edge can trick Bing into thinking you're using Edge and give you access to Bing's AI features. Here's how you can do it:
- Open Google Chrome and go to Bing.
- Press F12 or Ctrl + Shift + I to open the DevTools panel.
- Click the three vertical dots in the top right corner.
- Go to More tools and select Network conditions .
- Under Network conditions , under User agent , uncheck Select automatically and select Microsoft Edge - Windows from the drop-down menu.
- Refresh the page and sign in with your Microsoft account.
Bing AI will now be available to you. Click the chat button to start a chat.
2. Use Chrome Extensions
Another way to use Bing AI on Google Chrome is through the Bing Chat for All Browsers extension. With this Chrome extension, you don't have to open the DevTools panel every time you want to use Bing AI.
Simply click on the extension's icon to open Bing in a new tab. The extension automatically switches the user agent on that tab to Microsoft Edge, allowing you to use Bing AI on Chrome.
Here's how you can access Bing AI on Chrome using this extension:
- Install Bing Chat for All Browsers for Chrome.
- Click the extension icon in the upper right corner of the browser.
- Pin extensions for easy access.
- Click the Bing Chat for All Browsers icon .
- Sign in to your Microsoft account, if you haven't already.
Just as simple as that! You can now use Bing AI without using a Microsoft browser.
