Difference between ChatGPT and Bing Chat and the best way to use them

We have summarized the differences between ChatGPT and Bing Chat, both of which are interactive AIs that are free to use.

What are ChatGPT and Bing Chat, respectively?

ChatGPT and Bing Chat are both artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots.

ChatGPT is an AI chat service developed by OpenAI that can analyze large amounts of text data and generate natural sentences.

Bing Chat, on the other hand, is developed by Microsoft and integrated into the Bing search engine.

ChatGPT and Bing Chat also use OpenAI's GPT.

Both are technically identical with OpenAI's GPT-4 running in the background (the free version of Chat GPT is GPT-3.5). This is probably made possible by the fact that Microsoft is an investor in OpenAI.

However, even though they use the same technology, Bing Chat seems to be tuned by Microsoft and does not provide exactly the same answers and behaves differently.

The biggest difference between the two was that Bing Chat has access to the entire Internet, while ChatGPT does not.

The difference was that ChatGPT creates answers based on its own training data, while Bing Chat can create answers based on real-time search results, so it can create answers based on real-time information.

However, as of April 2023, ChatGPT is now able to respond by specifying a page URL on the Internet. However, it does not seem to read data from all web pages, so there are often mistakes in the answers.

Bing Chat also generates answers based on data crawled by Bing's search bot rather than real-time pages, so it is not completely real-time information, but even so, Bing Chat has stronger real-time performance.

Differences in Usable Environments

While ChatGPT is compatible with almost all current versions of browsers, Bing Chat can only be used with Microsoft Edge (Windows and Mac versions), which is a Microsoft browser.

Unlike ChatGPT, which is an independent service, Bing Chat is not an independent service but rather "just one of the features" of Microsoft services such as Bing.

This may change in the future, but as Microsoft wants to regain its search engine and browser market share, it may at least keep Microsoft Edge.

Save Chat History

ChatGPT stores all chat history on the server, allowing for continuous conversation. On the other hand, with Bong Chat, once a session is cleared, the history is lost.

ChatGPT understands the back and forth of a conversation and can be used to improve the accuracy of answers by asking a series of questions, which is not possible with Bing Chat, so this is a big difference in terms of ease of use.

Availability of API

ChatGPT is a service provided by OpenAI, not ChatGPT, but since ChatGPT provides API for similar functions, it is possible to incorporate it into your own apps and web services.

On the other hand, Bing Chat does not have API service.

Difference in Pricing Plans

Both ChatGPT and Bing Chat are free services, but ChatGPT has a paid plan called ChatGPT Plus ($20/month).

By signing up for ChatGPT Plus, you can relax the restrictions when using ChatGPT and use the latest features.

However, Bing Chat has only one clear limitation on functionality: the only limitation is that the number of input characters is limited to 2,000, so Bing Chat is a very good value service that allows you to use GPT-4 for free.

How to use ChatGPT and Bing Chat

ChatGPT for advanced processing

ChatGPT is the best choice for advanced processing because it keeps a history and handles continuous processing smoothly. For example, ChatGPT is ideal for complex processing such as continuous conversations or complex processing using extensions.

Also, if you want to use interactive AI programmatically using the API, ChatGPT is currently the only choice.

If you want to do research, Bing Chat is the best choice.

Bing Chat is characterized by its ability to collect real-time information, although there are some conditions. And the restrictions are not that strict.

Accuracy of information and frequency of use are important when doing research. In this sense, ChatGPT is not suitable for research because it uses old data as a source of information and has a limit on the number of times you can input data.

When doing research, you may be surprised to find that ChatGPT's limitations can be violated because you are searching for multiple keywords in a row.

Therefore, if you use Bing Chat for research and ChatGPT for text processing, you will be able to use the interactive AI with less stress and without getting caught by the limitations.
