It has been stated that OpenAI is working on a search engine substitute for Google that may be released in the next few days. 

The business responsible for the well-known AI chatbot, known as ChatGPT, has reportedly registered a new domain name, “,” along with a security certificate. This information was revealed in a post on Y Combinator’s Hacker News group. 


Although merely registering a domain is insufficient evidence, AI influencers on X have been sharing information about the company’s upcoming tentative 9 May debut of its AI-powered search engine. 

It’s assumed that OpenAI’s search engine will combine ChatGPT’s AI capabilities with those of a web search engine like Google. As a result, when a user queries the engine, they should anticipate seeing AI-generated content and connections to pertinent websites appear in the results. This is consistent with previous releases of AI tools that can do internet searches and provide relevant results. 

In order to generate additional cash for the business, OpenAI is also anticipated to include advertisements into the search engine. 

Additionally, consumers can go at Microsoft’s Copilot, which is powered by GPT-4 and the Bing search engine, to get a sense of how the new search engine might feel and appear, even though the UI of the search engine may vary depending on the device. 

With about 90% of the market, Google is presently one of the major participants in the search engine industry. According to reports, the business is thinking of charging customers for premium services on its search engine, which was introduced last year and is driven by generative AI. 

With the introduction of generative-AI solutions, Microsoft and OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, have drawn the attention of business leaders, while Google is engaged in a turf war with them. The companies that have been announcing the incorporation of AI-powered features in their products may face increased competition as a result of OpenAI’s entry into the search engine market.
