Since the arrival of ChatGPT, which either appears on WhatsApp or releases a paid version, chatbots continue to gain more and more relevance in all corners of technology. so much that Microsoft decided to adopt this model as the basis for your new Bing.
Available as a preview for selected users, the Redmond giant’s search engine has been revamped with all the benefits of AI. Due to the insistence of the users, the company had to limit the questions that would be answered by the chatbot, and so they would avoid getting confused. The curious thing is that this limit has been changing in recent weeks and now it expands again to improve responsiveness.
Bing will answer up to 15 questions in a single thread.
A few weeks ago we witnessed how Microsoft reduced the number of questions available per thread. This does not mean that we cannot continue using the new Bing afterwards (they give us 50 turns per day), but that we should restart the conversation. The change was due, according to Microsoft, to the fact that the bot ended up confusing when it linked too many questions, giving unhelpful answers. First, it was reduced to six requests per session, but this has improved recently.
This new question limit was established at ten questions per conversation, which subsequently translated into clicking on the available icon to open a new one. Maybe it was a little short, or so they must have thought at the Redmond headquarters. Starting today, Bing will accept up to 15 requests without interposing any problem. It is striking that this new figure is the number that they established as a limit for the AI to start doing its thing.
This means, or so we think, that the engineers behind Microsoft’s ChatGPT have sufficiently tested the chatbot to think that it is capable of supporting a batch of requests of such caliber. The change should not come by itself, since last time the available shifts per day were also increased (up to 120 times), but we do not know the updated figure.
Users will appreciate this update as it will now allow us to keep longer conversations with the chatbot, a question that although it does not seem so interesting, could determine the answer. As we know, when we use ChatGPT or Bing, the information we receive from the AI also depends on previous interactions, being able to add more data to the request.
Now, Bing goes one step further so that our conversations with the bot are more natural, since these will improve with the passing of the messages. Following the addition of new Bing chat styles or modes, this limit reduction is well received. We will see soon what are the steps of Microsoft to improve its conversational AI.
