Bing Chat will be coming to Chrome and Safari browsers, leaving behind the requirement to install Edge, Microsoft’s browser, to use Bing Chat. Bing has been testing Bing Chat on for a few weeks now and Bing is still testing it.
What we know. In the coming days, we expect Bing Chat to soon work on Chrome, Safari and other non-Edge browsers. Right now, when most people go to Bing and click on the “Chat” button, they will see this dialog to download Edge to use Bing.
Testing Bing Chat on other browsers. Bing has been testing Bing chat on Chrome, Safari and other browsers since earlier this month. Bing then escalated the tests to a larger percentage of users late last week. Some news organizations incorrectly reported that this is now live, it is not, and they have updated their stories since.
Search engines often test new features and changes to a subset of users. Bing does this all the time and so does Google. So it is not uncommon to see tests from these search engines all the time, some make it live to all users and some never see the light of day. But with Bing Chat coming to more browsers, that should happen pretty soon.
What Microsoft said. Here are tweets from Mikhail Parakhin, the CEO of Bing, on this topic, where you can see Bing has been testing this for a while but it should be out soon.
First, here he just said yesterday that Bing is still testing Bing Chat on other browsers, but it should be live soon to all users:
Last week he said this feature should be live in a week or two, so it should be live very soon for all:
In late May is when he confirmed Bing was first testing this:
Why we care. Bing Chat and these AI search solutions are rapidly changing. Both companies are frequently testing new features and expanding access to those features. What goes live and what remains a test is one of those waiting games.
