Last week, Microsoft shared its learnings from the preview launch of the new Bing experience. Microsoft confirmed that in long, extended chat sessions of 15 or more questions, Bing Chat can become repetitive or be prompted/provoked to give responses that are not necessarily helpful or in line with its designed tone. To avoid such cases, Microsoft announced last week that the Bing chat experience will be capped at 50 chat turns per day and 5 chat turns per session.
Today, Microsoft announced that it is increasing the limits on Bing chat sessions based on feedback from users. Microsoft has increased the chat turns per session to 6 and expanded to 60 total chats per day. Also, Microsoft has plans to increase the daily cap to 100 total chats soon. Microsoft also confirmed that the normal searches will no longer count against your chat totals.
In addition to increasing the limit, Microsoft Bing team will start testing an additional option that will allow you to choose the tone of the Chat from more Precise – which will focus on shorter, more search focused answers – to Balanced, to more Creative – which gives you longer and more chatty answers.
The goal is to give you more control on the type of chat behavior to best meet your needs.
Microsoft Bing team will provide more updates as they continue to make improvements in the model.
