Microsoft Strongly Recommends Google Chrome Users to Try Bing

In efforts to woo users, Microsoft is activating pop-up ads featuring a suggestion to try Bing, on Google Chrome for the Windows operating system. The software giant confirmed to Windows Latest that this is a one-time offer to set Bing as a default search engine. Microsoft is also promoting this initiative by offering free access to ChatGPT-4 features through Bing.

Microsoft clarified their stance on this campaign when Windows Latest reached out to them. They responded, “This is a one-time offer to choose Bing as your default search engine for Google Chrome. We strive to give customers a choice, so you can always decline.”

If users agree to the offer, this will not only set Bing as their default search engine but also install the Bing Search extension for Chrome. However, Google provides a safety net by offering the option to undo changes after the extension is installed. Interestingly, in a bid to dissuade users from this step, Microsoft would display a pop-up stating:

“This action will disable Microsoft Bing Search for Chrome, and you will lose access to Bing AI with GPT-4 and DALL-E 3”.
