The latest AI-powered marketing tech releases

ChatGPT isn't always enough: After losing the search engine wars to Google's wallet, Microsoft rebrands Bing Chat to CoPilot.

Chat with MarTechBot

ChatGPT is great for a lot of things, but it won’t win you the search engine wars. The kickoff of the ChatGPT frenzy last year was Microsoft’s announcement it was adding the generative AI chatbot to its search engine Bing. 

This was seen as a direct challenge to Google’s domination of the search engine market. While ChatGPT (and genAI in general) soared, Bing’s numbers remained unchanged. So this week, MS is rebranding Bing Chat to CoPilot, a name now in use in many other products from the company. Confused yet?

Microsoft’s big mistake was thinking advanced new technology could beat Google’s true advantage in this area: Money. In 2021, Big G paid $26.3 billion to a number of tech and mobile phone companies so that it would be the default search engine on their web browsers. 

Tech comes and goes, but cash is forever.
