Microsoft has officially started testing some AI-related features of Bing Chat, the official chatbot of the Redmond artificial intelligence search engine of the same name. Thanks to the improvements, AI will be able to converse with humans in an even more realistic way, as well as provide more precise and, Microsoft promises, “creative” answers.
“We will start testing an additional option that will allow you to choose the tone of the chat – writes Bing – which means that you can receive shorter answers, more focused on the research you are interested in carrying out, or balanced or creative, with longer answers and talkative. The goal is to give you more control over the type of chat you want to have, to best suit your needs.”
Bing Chat: You can use AI for 60 hours a day
Also, Microsoft has increased the daily chat limit. The company announced on Friday that users could open up to 5 chat sessions for up to 50 hours a day. Today Bing announces that the daily limit has risen to 6 sessions per day for up to 60 hours. The company plans to increase the daily limit to 100 total chats. Also in the future normal searches will not count as a chat with the bot.
Thanks for all your feedback on Bing chat limits. As of today, we have increased to 60 chats per day and shortly we will move to 100. And your searches will no longer count against your chat total. More to come as we improve the model responsibly. Let us https://t.co/O2lljZ8jWe… https://t.co/DnsLA9lozs

Recall that Bing Chat was officially launched just a few weeks ago, on February 7, as part of the Bing search engine. Only a few days ago the chatbot became the protagonist of a nice and disturbing scene, covertly threatening an online hacker.
