How to use Bing’s AI Chat on all your deviceson May 5, 2023 at 10:16 Tech Advisor


2023 has already been a huge year for AI. The first few months of the year have been dominated by ChatGPT, with Microsoft and many others integrating the technology into various apps and services.

Access to Bing Chat was initially very limited, but those restrictions have now been lifted. Anyone on the Edge browser can use it, and you don’t need wait for an invitation.

While each Bing Chat user is limited to 5 chats per session and 50 chats in total each day, that’s plenty to put the AI chatbot through its paces. Here’s how to get started on your desktop PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet. 

How to use Bing Chat on Windows or Mac

Of course, Microsoft wants you to use Windows 11 to access Bing Chat. That’s what we’ll be using for this section of the tutorial, but it also works on Mac. Just download Edge for Mac to get started, then follow the same steps as below:
