Microsoft bringing back longer chats – starts to ungag its Bing chatbot

  • by

Only a few days ago Microsoft implemented chat limits of five turns per session and a total of 50 per day, in response to a few cases in which long chat sessions confused the underlying model.

Now Microsoft has started to roll back its initial decision and has increased the chat turns per session to six and expanded to 60 total chats per day, which should allow for the natural daily use of Bing.

And that is now all! The team intends to go further and increase the daily cap to 100 total chats soon. With this coming change, normal searches will no longer count against chat totals.

There are also plans to add an option that enables users to choose the tone of the chat, from more precise and search-focused answers to longer and chattier answers. The goal is to give users more control over the type of chat behavior that best meets their needs.
