Microsoft will begin testing Bing Chat tones, allowing users to switch between receiving more creative or more focused responses to their queries.
Once the new option is available, you can choose between accurate, balanced, or creative responses from Redmond’s AI-powered Bing chat bot.
We’ll start testing an additional option that lets you choose the tone of the chat from more precise – which will focus on shorter, more research-oriented responses – to balanced, to more creative – which gives you more longer and more chatty,” the Bing team said.
“The goal is to give you more control over the type of cat behavior to best suit your needs.”
Microsoft also indicates chat limits (5 chat rounds per session and a total of 50 per day) that were presented on Friday to respond to confusing and sometimes aggressive responses from Bing Chat have now been extended to allow for “more natural day-to-day use of Bing”.
Starting today, the number of chat rounds has been increased to six per session, at 60 chats per day.
Next, Redmond plans to increase the daily cap to 100 total chats and ensure that normal searches will no longer count towards the total number of chats.
Thank you for all of your feedback on Bing Chat Limits. Starting today, we’ve increased to 60 chats per day and soon we’ll be increasing to 100. And your searches will no longer count towards your chat total. More to come as we responsibly improve the model. let us https://t.co/O2lljZ8jWe… https://t.co/DnsLA9lozs

Microsoft announced Bing Chatthe new version of its Bing search engine powered by a next-generation OpenAI language model, on February 7, when it also launched a version of its new Edge web browser with two new features named “chat” and “compose” available in the sidebar.
As BleepingComputer reported last week, Bing AI chat also comes with secret chat modes that allow you to switch between a personal assistant, a friend to help you with your problems, a game mode to play games with Bing and the default Bing search mode.
Redmond declined to comment when BleepingComputer asked for more information about these secret chat modes.
However, they clearly show that the company plans to do much more with Bing Chat than just a chat service for the Bing search engine.
