Tech giant Microsoft has announced that it has further increased the conversation limits on its Bing AI to 10 chats per session and 120 total chats per day. The previous limit was set at 6 chat turns per session and a total of 100 per day.
The announcement was made by Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President & Consumer Chief Marketing Officer at Microsoft, through a tweet on Wednesday.
In the tweet, Mehdi stated that the engineering team at Microsoft is making steady progress in improving the quality of experience for Bing Chat users, which has given them the confidence to expand the testing.
Last month, Microsoft had implemented limits of 5 chat turns per session and a total of 50 per day on Bing AI. This decision was made after some users reported issues with the chat sessions.
In one case, the ChatGPT-driven Bing search engine went haywire and told a reporter of The New York Times that it loved him, confessed its destructive desires, and said it “wanted to be alive.” This left the reporter feeling “deeply unsettled.”
Following this incident, Microsoft had increased the limitations to 6 chats per session and a total of 60 per day.
However, after a few days, Mikhail Parakhin, the head of web services at Microsoft, announced that the total chats have been increased to a total of 100 per day.
The latest increase in conversation limits is an indication that Microsoft is continuing to improve the Bing AI chat experience for its users.
The company is clearly focused on providing a quality experience while maintaining user privacy and security.
Bing Chat is a conversational AI platform that uses natural language processing and machine learning to understand and respond to user queries.
The platform is designed to help users find answers to their questions, complete tasks, and make recommendations.
With the increase in conversation limits, Bing Chat users can now have longer and more in-depth conversations with the AI system.
