Earlier this week, Microsoft announced the integration of the ChatGPT AI bot into its Bing search engine and Edge browser. It seems that the announced changes pleased the users, as the next day after the event of the software giant, the number of downloads of the Bing app for iOS increased several times.
In the U.S. App Store, Bing climbed to #12 in the rankings of the most popular free apps for iPhone, while the Edge browser ranked third in the Utilities category. Globally, the number of new downloads of the Bing app has jumped 10-fold, according to research firm data.ai. This indicates a significant interest in AI features from consumers and their willingness to start using a new search engine or browser to access these tools.
Although Microsoft has technically already launched a new version of Bing, it is currently in pre-release version of the search engine, and with limited functionality. And access to the chatbot itself in the search engine is completely limited: to get it, you need to sign up for a waiting list. Microsoft offers to speed up the waiting process by making Bing the default search engine on your computer, and by scanning a QR code to install the mobile version of Bing on your smartphone. Obviously, this played an important role in such a significant increase in the popularity of the application.
