On 7 February 2023, Microsoft announced the new Bing, an updated version of its Bing search engine with AI-powered search, answer, and chat capabilities (The Verge). The new Bing is powered by an OpenAI large language model, which Microsoft claims makes it “more powerful than ChatGPT” (ZDNET). With “multiple millions” on the waitlist, Microsoft is in the process of scaling access to the new Bing, but many have raised concerns about the technology giving wrong answers and disinformation (Twitter, Vice, Microsoft). 
The new Bing is currently in limited preview and only available through a waitlist. This question will resolve “Yes” if Microsoft makes it fully open to the public without a waitlist on or before 30 April 2023. If Microsoft releases “the new Bing” to the public, with some, but not all, of the features available in the limited preview, this question will still resolve “Yes”.  

Question clarification
Issued on 02/27/23 10:42pm
The new Bing does not necessarily have to be accessible in every country upon release for this question to resolve "yes". For example, if Microsoft releases the new Bing to users in the United States, this question would still resolve "yes" provided that the new Bing is otherwise publicly available to users in the U.S.

If the new Bing is available to the public, but requires the use of a Microsoft account or platform to access it (e.g., Windows or Microsoft Edge), this question will resolve "yes".
