Bing powered by AI and integrated with ChatGPT was released earlier this month by Microsoft. A few users on the waiting list were given access to the preview shortly after it launched by the company. According to numerous reports, the chatbot in Microsoft’s web browser went awry and insulted, threatened, and even made fun of users. After that, the company instituted caps of five chat turns per session and a total of fifty per day. Microsoft is currently increasing the length of chat sessions and overall number of chats.
Microsoft stated in a blog post that it had heard from many users who wanted longer chats to return so that they could search more efficiently and use the chat feature more effectively.
Microsoft increase chat conversations with Bing
Although the company announced that it would be bringing back longer chats, each session will still only allow for six chat turns, with a maximum of 60 chats per day. According to our data, the vast majority of you will be able to continue using Bing as usual as a result, Microsoft added.
The company also declared its intention to go further, saying that it would ‘shortly’ raise the daily cap to 100 total chats. Once the higher limit is implemented, regular searches will no longer be included in your chat totals.
Changes coming to Bing Chat
Microsoft has announced that it will start testing a new feature that will let users control the Chat’s tone. There will be three tones: Precise, which emphasizes shorter, more search-focused answers; Balanced; and Creative, which provides users with longer, more rambling responses.
The intention, according to the company, is to give you more control over the kind of chat behavior that best suits your needs.
Why Microsoft imposed restrictions on Bing
Last week, Microsoft introduced a limit of 5 chat trips per session and 50 chat trips per day “to account for the small number of cases where long chat sessions mess up the underlying model.”
“These long and complex chat sessions are not something we typically find in internal testing. In fact, the reason we’re testing the new Bing publicly with a limited set of preview testers is precisely to find these atypical use cases that we can learn from.” .. and improve products,” the company said.
