Microsoft increases Bing Chat’s session limit

Share post:

Since early user feedback revealed flaws in Bing’s AI chatbot, Microsoft has progressively increased the communication limit.

When the model became confused over extended talk sessions, Microsoft reduced the chat restriction to five turns per session and 50 per day. Microsoft, on the other hand, has been focusing on increasing the chat limit in order to allow for more productive and meaningful talks with the chatbot.

Bing Chat customers recently claimed that their talk and session restrictions have been raised to 20 chats per session and 200 total chats per day. Microsoft’s Vice President of Growth and Distribution, Michael Schechter, acknowledged the rise on Twitter. He claimed that Microsoft tested the increase over the weekend and that everything looked to be working well.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, also tweeted about the new chat restriction, which may be seen as confirmation of its deployment. Users may visit the chatbot, input a prompt, and see how many conversations they have left to use to see if the new restriction has been implemented.

As the chat limit was cut, it became more difficult to have meaningful talks with the chatbot, rendering it completely ineffectual for technical prompts like coding or text formatting. This issue has been solved by increasing the chat limit, giving consumers more freedom to conduct a meaningful interaction with the chatbot. Additionally, standard Bing searches will not be counted towards the conversation totals, providing consumers with even more bandwidth to interact with the chatbot.

Microsoft has noted that long, convoluted chat sessions were not something it was testing for internally. Therefore, the public’s use and feedback have been useful in learning more about the chatbot. “In fact, the very reason we are testing the new Bing in the open with a limited set of preview testers is precisely to find these atypical use cases from which we can learn and improve the product,” said Microsoft.

It is likely that Microsoft will continue to gradually scale the limits, offering more opportunities for users with every upgrade.
