Microsoft Bing Chat to Get GPT-4 Upgrade, Adding Video and Audio Responses

GPT-4 is an OpenAI multimodal AI that handles audio, text, and images. Microsoft is adding it to Bing Chat this month.


On the surface, 's new Bing Chat search chatbot AI is running on a proprietary system known as Prometheus. However, scratch below that surface you find 's and GPT 3.5 underpin the new Bing. Microsoft has been working to improve since its launch last month and now says GPT 4 is coming this month to add further improvements.

Before the launch of Bing Chat it was reported Microsoft would leverage GPT 4 to power the service. However, the new Bing launched With GPT 3.5. At its “AI in Focus – Digital Kickoff” event, Microsoft Germany CTO Andreas Braun confirmed the company is now ready to integrate .

“We will introduce GPT-4 next week, there we will have multimodal models that will offer completely different possibilities – for example videos.”

Current GPT models from OpenAI have limitations. Specifically, the only allows interactions via text input. GPT 4 is a , which means that it can interact through various forms, such as sound, text, and images.

So, this means Bing Chat will eventually be able to surface results in video and audio form. It is unclear if that capability will arrive immediately when the search engine updates to GPT 4 next week. It will see improvements through, such as faster answers and more human-like responses.

Microsoft has helped OpenAI to develop the GPT AI engine over the years, and had an exclusive license of GPT-3.


Speaking of multi-modal AI, Microsoft this month debuted its Kosmos-1 project.

According to the company, this is a multimodal large language model (MLLM) AI that can solve visual puzzles, pass visual IQ tests, handle text recognition from images, and analyze images and describe their content.

Microsoft Research says multimodal AI such as Kosmos-1 is an important technology for creating artificial general intelligence (AGI) that can act on a human level when performing tasks.
