Don’t Get Excited Yet: OpenAI Will Not Present Its Web Search Engine Next Week

If you were eagerly awaiting the debut of ChatGPT Search, the rumored web search engine from OpenAI, there’s disappointing news. Sam Altman, head of the AI startup, denied any launch plans for the product or GPT-5.

The denial from the OpenAI CEO follows the company’s announcement of an event scheduled for Monday, May 13. The event aims to showcase updates to ChatGPT and GPT-4. You can watch it live on the company’s official website, starting at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time (7:00 p.m. in Spain).

Altman shared this information via Twitter and clarified that ChatGPT Search or any similar product won’t be revealed. He stated, “It’s not GPT-5 or a search engine, but we’ve been working hard on some new things that we think people will love!” Despite avoiding false expectations, he mentioned that the upcoming features for the chatbot and its AI model “feel like magic.”

OpenAI has calmed down the excitement surrounding a recent topic of discussion. The buzz about ChatGPT Search started earlier this month when a Twitter user, @nonmayorpete, claimed it would launch on May 9 at

Although the expected announcement didn’t happen yesterday, Reuters reported that, according to two sources, it would occur next Monday. Despite the initial hype, we now know this won’t be the case.

Since ChatGPT came out, there’s been talk that AI chatbots could replace search engines like Google or Bing. That’s why rumors about ChatGPT Search got so much attention.

However, just because Sam Altman denied launching a product like this next week doesn’t mean it’s not being worked on. The URL used to lead to the web version of ChatGPT, but now it shows an error message, though not the usual “404 error”.

Launching ChatGPT Search on May 13 would’ve been a direct challenge to Google. They’re hosting I/O 2024 next Tuesday and Wednesday, where they’ll announce big AI news. If OpenAI launched a browser a day earlier, it would steal Google’s thunder.

We’ll soon find out what Sam Altman and his team have been working on. Could it be the debut of GPT-4.5 Turbo? OpenAI hinted at a faster, more accurate, and scalable ChatGPT model, with an expanded knowledge base. Maybe there’ll be updates on GPT-2 too. All will be revealed next Monday.
