Since its launch a few weeks ago, Microsoft’s new Bing artificial intelligence has been received with a mixture of love and scepticism. While some users spent countless hours talking to him, others were wary of his answers. The company even stepped in and limited Bing’s responses to keep it under control. However, another limitation of the new Bing AI chatbot is that you can only use it in the Microsoft Edge browser. If you’re part of the flock that (sort of) loves Bing but doesn’t want to use Edge, you’re in luck. Now there’s a handy way to use Microsoft’s new Bing artificial intelligence across all desktop browsers. So open a new tab in Google Chrome and let’s get started.
Use Bing AI Chat in any web browser (2023)
Before we can start using Bing AI Chat in any browser on Windows or Mac, we need to meet certain requirements. However, if you already know, use the table below to go through the process itself.
Requirements to access Bing AI in your browser
- Microsoft account
Since we will be using a Microsoft service, we will require a Microsoft account to use Bing AI. Fortunately, it’s easy to make. Simply go to the Microsoft Account (Register) page and create one for yourself. You have to enter some standard details and verify your email, but you should be good to go after that.
- Access to the new Bing
The new Bing AI chatbot is out with limited access for now. Therefore, you will need to join a waiting list to be allowed inside. While not ideal, it’s currently the only way to start using Bing’s new AI in your web browser.
Once you’ve created a Microsoft account, don’t forget to sign in with it. Once done, go to the official Microsoft Bing website (Join) and click the “Join the waiting list” button.
- Bing Chat extension for all browsers
This last requirement is also the most important to use the new Bing in all your browsers. We’ll be using an extension called ‘Bing for All Browsers’ which enables this handy feature. To complete these requirements, download Bing for all browsers (Chrome and Firefox). Those looking for a repository can check out the Github page (visit).
How to use Bing AI Chat in any desktop browser
With everything in place, let’s get started with setting up and using the new Bing AI chatbot in browsers other than Microsoft Edge. Simply follow the steps below to see how it works.
- Open a new tab in your browser and click the Bing browser extension next to the address bar. Once it opens, click the “Open Bing Chat” button.
- There is a high chance that you will be signed out of your Microsoft account and therefore you will be taken to the Microsoft Bing home screen. Once there, click the “Sign In” button at the top right.
- Continue by entering your login email address and password. If prompted to stay logged in, click “Yes” on the next screen.
- When done, close the open Bing tab and click the extension and button as shown in the first step. Once done, the Bing AI chat mode will open and you are ready to go.
As we mentioned above, you will get access only after you are approved by Microsoft. This step will require you to register as above and then wait for a confirmation email. Don’t worry though, you shouldn’t have to wait too long. However, once you do that, you can follow the steps above and easily get Bing in all your browsers.
My experience using the Bing AI chatbot across browsers has been pretty seamless. The extension launches Bing quickly and smoothly. I was able to chat with the AI chatbot several times without my browser or extension crashing. Moreover, I even installed Bing AI on Firefox and it worked fine there. So, no matter what browser you use, you can safely say that you can use the MS Bing AI bot there.
