Microsoft started rolling out the AI version of Bing Search a.k.a New Bing powered by ChatGPT. While it is primarily available on Microsoft Edge (how to use New Bing from Edge Sidebar), it can also be used on Google Chrome as well.
To use the AI version of Bing, you have to visit bing.com from Edge because it is blocked on other browsers. If you try to open it in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and other browsers.
You will see this message “Chat mode is only available when you have access to the new Bing.” and suggest you open it in Microsoft Edge with the message “Unlock conversational search on Microsoft Edge.“
Although, it is possible to bypass this browser-specific restriction for using the New Bing by modifying the browser user agent. Let’s learn how to do that.
