I cannot see the Bing search (web browsing) beta feature in GPT 4 UI anymore

I was working with web browsing feature on GPT 4 till today morning, but after an expired session I cannot find the web browsing option available anymore. Its not even showing beta feature tag in setting & beta on lower left side of web interface.

web browsing toggle is not available anymore…is it happening for anyone else also?

Same here. What happened to this? Looks like I could still use the function when I make additional inputs to the previous queries with the Bing Search activated.

I’ll share my situation with you. I used the option very well, and it worked perfectly with my Microsoft account. About a month ago, I received an alert that my account was blocked due to suspicious activity, and I couldn’t recover it anymore. OpenAI’s customer support is non-existent. I had to create a new Chat GPT account, this time using my Gmail. I paid for Plus again, and now it’s not working. Please comment if you are experiencing this issue with a Google or Microsoft account

For me the previous web browsing threads throw errors now…And my web browsing search was against policy then they could’ve let me know instead of removing the feature. I also dont remember asking anything more than just cricket news to see difference between 3.5 and 4. I am just trying to experiment the GPT 4 platform and now i cant do that even

Hello,

Hello :slightly_smiling_face:
I subscribed to ChatGPT Plus, and my web browsing option has disappeared since Monday, but it is visible on my phone.

What is happening?

In my opinion, I think it’s a bug on OpenAI’s end . The feature disappeared from my windows devices, but I still have access from my iOS device. I’m not sure if it has something to do with windows or the web version, but for now I think the only way to access the feature is to download the app. I could be wrong, but this is all from what I’ve seen.

Hopefully OpenAI could fix this problem, as the feature was pretty useful in my opinion.

I noticed that the web search feature is only available on my phone but not my laptop. Seeing how this is an issue for others, it’s most likely a bug.

Like most people here, I’m having the same issue. I can’t see the option to search with Bing in my GPT 4 dropdown. It disappeared on Monday. I do have the option on my iOS device still… Here I was hoping that I could use the combined Search with Bing/Dall-E3/Advanced Data Analysis in a single chat session like some on YouTube seem to have access to…

same issue I can’t see the option to search with Bing in my GPT 4 dropdown. It disappeared on Monday

Same here! Plus user here and only have the dalle3 option. I do not even know what that is. But I would live to have the search option back.

I have the same problem… Any solution? Browsing with Bing was a great feature.

It seems like it’s a bug , or they are rolling out different features in stages for plus users. I also read on a blog that sometines some features are rolled out for iOS users earlier, but I can’t be sure of credibility of this post I read. Anyways, its most likely technical error from the platform.

I am able to see “Browse with Bing” Back in my UI in drop down menu… so it started working for me again after a week
