Microsoft Bing Achieves 100 Million Daily Active Users; AI Chat now supports up to 10 per session
Last month, Microsoft released the new AI-powered Bing and Edge to the world as ‘co-pilots for the web’. New Bing and Edge have made great strides in the first month and are mentioned as products that are helping to shape our future product development.
New Bing Preview Bing Surpasses 100M Daily Active Users
Microsoft announced that its Bing search engine has passed the 100 million daily active users milestone for the first time in its history. This is a big deal, as it shows steady progress since its launch.
In addition, 1/3 of users who are part of the Bing Chat preview are actively using it daily and 45 million chats have been conducted since launch. Although the number is less than Google’s, Microsoft is still pleased with its growth.
According to the company, two factors are driving the trial and use:
- Microsoft Edge usage has been growing steadily for the past seven quarters; New capabilities like Bing Search and Create in the Edge Sidebar will drive its growth.
- Bing search quality has taken a significant jump in relevance due to the introduction of the Prometheus model, thus reaching an all-time high.
Microsoft is confident in its growth with Bing and Edge, as the company has seen a 6x increase in daily active users with the launch of its new Bing app.
To continue this growth, the company is introducing new AI features and plans to talk about the future of work with AI at an event on March 16. With its “search + answer + chat + build” experience, Microsoft is sure to revolutionize the search engine.
Bing Chat today is going at 10 chats per session / 120 total chats per day.
Engineering is constantly progressing along with the quality of experience which gives us the confidence to expand testing. Let us know how it’s working for you!
