- Bing Chat has increased its limits again.
- The chatbot now supports 15 chats per session and 150 chats per day.
- Bing Chat previously had problems with longer conversations, but Microsoft has gradually increased the limits of the service.
In what seems to be a weekly story, Microsoft has pushed the boundaries of Bing Chat once again. The chatbot now allows up to 15 chats per session and a total of 150 chats per day. Previously, the limit was 10 chats per session and 120 per day.
Bing Chat was initially released in preview without any limitations regarding the number of chats per session or per day. Then the service had problems. Long conversations confused Bing Chat in some cases, causing the tool to generate strange or even rude responses.
Microsoft then put a limit on chats. The first limit was five chats per session and 50 per day. Since then, the limit has been steadily increased.
Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of modern life, search and devices at Microsoft, shared the following On twitter.
“Two updates: Bing Chat limits move to 15/150.
Try an optimization in “Balanced” mode to significantly improve performance, resulting in shorter and faster responses. The precise and creative modes remain unchanged and provide a diversity of experiences.”
Microsoft has said that it will continue to increase the limits of Bing Chat over time. Presumably, the tech giant will improve the service’s ability to handle longer conversations. Microsoft has noticed that the vast majority of conversations can be completed in relatively few steps, but increased limits are always welcome.
This week it was confirmed that the new Bing works with GPT-4, which was announced by OpenAI on March 14, 2023. The new Large Language Model (LLM) is significantly more powerful and capable than GPT-3.5.
