Microsoft’s Bing Chat has recently released a series of updates that include a chat history feature and an export button. The new chat history feature allows users to view their previous chat threads on the right-hand side of the chat window. This means that users no longer have to worry about losing their chat history when starting a new conversation. Additionally, users can personalize their history by deleting or renaming their chats based on their needs. However, there is no mention of whether users can turn off the chat history options.
Users can also share or export their conversations to a PDF, text file, or Microsoft Word Document, allowing them to save their findings in a more structured way. Bing Chat has also added more visual elements to aid users in finding complete and useful responses. For example, if a user searches for “How to tie a tie?”, a video with timestamps could come up as part of the answer to help them master the skill.
Other updates announced in the blog post include improved auto-suggest, optimized answers for recipes, and privacy improvements in the Edge sidebar. However, a major update not included in the blog post but spotted by users on Twitter was the removal of a chat limit and chat turns. Instead of seeing a chat limit in the lower left-hand corner of each individual chat, users now see a character tracker with a limit of 4,000 characters per chat.
Microsoft’s annual developer conference, Microsoft Build, is set to take place on Tuesday, and more updates are expected to be announced. The company has been making strides in the field of artificial intelligence, and these updates are just one example of how they are using AI to improve their products.
As with any new technology, there are concerns about privacy and data usage. ChatGPT had to recently implement a feature that allows users to turn off chat history options to give users autonomy about which of their data gets used to train OpenAI’s models. Bing Chat has not yet announced whether users will have this option.
Overall, the new updates to Bing Chat are a step forward in improving the user experience. The chat history feature and export button are long-awaited additions that will make it easier for users to keep track of their conversations and save their findings. The addition of more visual elements and optimized answers also shows that Microsoft is committed to improving the quality of their responses. However, it remains to be seen how users will respond to the chat history options and whether they will have the ability to turn them off.
