Microsoft has released new notes highlighting all the improvements added to Bing Chat this week. Here’s everything you need to know about these new additions:

First up, Microsoft has announced significant improvements as far as travel and recipe grounding are concerned. With these enhancements, Microsoft cites that Bing Chat will be able to furnish users with better answers to questions revolving around travel and recipes.


The Bing team has also indicated that they have improved the accuracy of citations.

According to the Bing team:

For recipes, we used improved grounding data from recipe content providers and made sure that citations directed you to the recipe site instead of Expect us to make further grounding improvements based on your feedback.

Additionally, the Bing team has also indicated that it is working toward resolving instances where Bing Chat abruptly ends conversations with the following responses:

I’m sorry but I prefer not to continue this conversation.


It might be time to move on to a new topic.

Microsoft has indicated that users are less likely to encounter this  issue since the changes made this week are in place to help “reduce some of the most egregious scenarios where this occurred.”

And finally, the bug causing Bing chat in Edge Sidebar not to recognize the content in the browser’s active tab has also been fixed.
