Microsoft advertising and network services head Mikhail Parakhin today in X (Twitter) tweet, said he has invited some Bing Chat users, test “nosearch” function.
Parakhin’s tweet included an image of a person typing in the question, “Who is the current president of the United States?” Parakhin tweeted a picture of a user typing in the question “Who is the current President of the United States?” and Bing Chat disabled Bing web search and sent the relevant results directly to the user.
“Some people will now see this option,” Parakhin tweeted. Michael Schechter, vice president of Microsoft’s Bing Group, retweeted Parakhin’s message, saying, “We’re excited to roll it out to our experienced premium users who have been asking for it.”
As previously reported, this new feature means that users can instruct Bing Chat not to rely on the vast amount of information available on the Internet to answer questions, but instead to provide more accurate and relevant information that matches the user’s preferences and needs. It can also address some cases where web searches are unnecessary or ineffective, allowing users to quickly access key queries or reference information, saving them the trouble of browsing through potentially irrelevant search results.
