The new Bing with ChatGPT continues to give people something to talk about. After the first few weeks in which the new OpenAI model –on which the Microsoft product is based– has fascinated the world, the Redmond company has been forced to limit the use that users can make of their artificial intelligence.
Specifically, Microsoft has decided to limit to fifty the number of daily messages that each account can send to the new Bing with integrated ChatGPT. Each session will also be limited to a maximum of five requests. Once this figure is reached, the user must clear the contextual cache –generated by the immediately preceding questions– before continuing.
Microsoft acknowledges that this limitation has been caused by the numerous examples posted on the internet where you can see how Bing’s underlying model gets confused when conversations are long and consequently grow in complexity.
The company ensures that, according to its usage statistics, Bing with ChatGPT is capable of delivering the response that a user expects with five or fewer messages. “Only ≈1% of chat conversations have more than 50 messages,” it says on its website.
How to use the new Bing with ChatGPT?
Despite the limitations, Microsoft continues to encourage using the new Bing with ChatGPT. Accessing it, however, is not as simple (yet) as entering the search engine’s website. Before, the user must request access to the tool. And if you want to speed up your onboarding, you’ll need to complete one of the tasks recommended by Microsoft (such as downloading the Bing app on your mobile phone).
The user will be notified by email when their access to the new Bing with ChatGPT has been approved. Once you get to that point, the only remaining step will be to download Microsoft Edge on any desktop computer – it doesn’t work on mobile yet – sign in with the Microsoft account in question and start experimenting with artificial intelligence.
This new Bing with ChatGPT is based on a more advanced model than the one that drives the version of ChatGPT that OpenAI made public months ago. The company, however, has not specified whether it is GPT-4 or a previous version.
Another of the great advantages of Bing with ChatGPT compared to the version published by OpenAI is that it generates results with recent information, while the OpenAI chatbot does not.
