Samsung Electronics won’t be swapping out the default search engine on its smartphones from Google to Microsoft’s Bing any time soon, WSJ reported Friday, citing people familiar with the matter. From the report: Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone maker, has suspended an internal review that had explored replacing Google with Bing on its mobile devices, the people said. The potential switch would have swapped out Google as the go-to search engine on Samsung’s “Internet” web-browsing app, which comes preinstalled on the South Korean company’s smartphones. Any imminent breakup would have handed Bing a coveted victory in a search-engine space that has long been dominated by Alphabet-owned Google. This year, Bing gained some fresh momentum as it adopted the features of ChatGPT, the chatbot that has surged in popularity and is run by Microsoft-backed OpenAI.
