How to Connect ChatGPT to the Internet – Beebom

OpenAI recently decided to disable the “Browse with Bing” feature in ChatGPT (available via ChatGPT Plus), since it was showing content from paywalled sites. This has led to many users looking for an alternate way to access the internet on ChatGPT. Well, with one of the best ChatGPT Plugins, Chrome extensions, and a simple alternative, you can connect ChatGPT to the internet seamlessly. It lets you access the internet and provide the latest information on any subject, making ChatGPT even more useful for users. So on that note, let’s learn how to connect ChatGPT to the internet using three simple methods.

1. Browse the Web on ChatGPT Using KeyMate.AI Search Plugin (Paid)

There are many ChatGPT plugins that offer internet connectivity on ChatGPT. However, KeyMate.AI Search performs much better and combines results from various sources. Other plugins like WebPilot, MixerBox WebSearch, Link Reader, etc. that we tested failed to fetch details from multiple sources. That said, the only con of KeyMate.AI search is that it adds a sponsored link at the end of the responses, but that's about it.
  • First, go ahead and enable ChatGPT Plugins. Keep in mind that you must be subscribed to ChatGPT Plus.
  • Next, open the “Plugin store” under “GPT-4” in ChatGPT.
  • Here, search for “KeyMate.AI” and install the plugin.

  • You can give a URL as input to ChatGPT, and the plugin can access the live webpage and summarize the information for you.

  • To test the plugin, I gave it a paywalled link, but it couldn’t read the content, which is expected behavior. So this is possibly the best way to connect ChatGPT to the internet; even if it’s paid.

2. Connect ChatGPT to Internet Using WebChatGPT Extension (Free)

If you are looking for a free and simple solution to connect ChatGPT to the internet, you can rely on one of the best ChatGPT Chrome extensions. Called the WebChatGPT Chrome extension, it expands the functionality of OpenAI’s chatbot, and here’s how:

  • First, you need to install the WebChatGPT (Free) Chrome extension.

3. Use ChatGPT with Internet Access on Microsoft Bing Chat

We all know that Microsoft’s Bing Chat is powered by the GPT-4 model from OpenAI. And thankfully, Bing Chat has access to the internet without any restrictions. Additionally, Bing Chat sources its results from the Bing search engine, unlike most plugins and extensions which are powered by the Google Search API.
Best of all, Microsoft has opened access to Bing Chat on every browser, including Chrome and Firefox. So if you use Bing over Google, go ahead and use Bing Chat on any browser with internet access.

  • Open (visit) in your browser of choice.
  • Then, click the “Chat” button in the top-left corner.
