How to use ChatGPT 4 with Microsoft Edge

The Microsoft Edge browser offers perhaps one of the best and easiest ways for an average person to access and use ChatGPT-4 for free, without having to pay for ChatGPT-4 access through OpenAI. Best of all, Edge is available for just about every major platform, including Mac, Windows, Linux, iPhone, iPad, and Android.

With the Edge browser’s Copilot feature, you can access GPT-4 at any time while in the web browser easily. Whether you’re browsing the web, or simply looking to engage in a discussion with the GPT service to summarize a webpage or article, get answers to questions, walk through code or scripts, write emails or letters, help solve complex problems, and so much more.

If you find GPT-4 useful enough, and like other things about the Microsoft Edge browser, you just may end up setting it as your default browser on the Mac, or whatever other device you’re using.

How do I know what version of ChatGPT is available with Microsoft Edge?

Currently, Microsoft Edge and Copilot use GPT-4. You can confirm this by directly asking ChatGPT/Copilot a question about it’s version, by typing “what version of GPT are you using?” to which you will get a reply stating GPT-4 is in use.

Because of Microsoft’s heavy investment in OpenAI, it’s highly likely that each version of Edge will continue to have GPT present, and even new version of GPT available will be rolled out to Edge users with Copilot as well. This means it’s probable that GPT-4.5, GPT-5, etc will also become available to Edge users for free, whenever those versions of GPT are released to the public.

What other ways can you access and use GPT-4 for free?

The Copilot-based GPT-4 access and capabilities works the same on Microsoft Edge for Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, Android, Linux etc, though the interface is a little different on iPhone and iPad.

You can also access GPT-4 for free without any particular web browser requirement by using Bing search while logged into a Microsoft account.

If you’re already familiar with using ChatGPT via the OpenAI website or official ChatGPT app and you prefer that approach, that’s great too.

Remember that OpenAI ChatGPT uses GPT 3 at the free level, and using GPT-4 with OpenAI requires a monthly subscription. The Edge browser and Copilot feature offers GPT-4 entirely for free, since it’s built directly into the browser.

    IMO the easiest way to use the GPT-4 for free is to use the free Copilot app (iOS, iPadOS). After you have installed the app, you just need to login using your MS account (hotmail account, for example) and the GPT-4 can then be used without any cost.
