Microsoft has recently released Bing Chat Enterprise, a preview experience, for faculty with Microsoft 365 A3 and A5 licenses. It also offers a stand-alone offering for $5 per user, per month, for those customers who do not have these Microsoft 365 licenses. Bing Chat Enterprise ensures that user and organization data are protected and will not leak outside the organization. Chat data is not saved, and Microsoft has no eyes-on access, meaning no one can view the data and it is not used to train any models. To turn on Bing Chat Enterprise, an IT administrator will need to ensure the Microsoft Search in Bing control in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center is enabled, and then navigate to the Bing Chat Enterprise documentation to learn how to turn the feature on or off for the organization. It will be on by default no earlier than September 21st. Faculty signed in with their Microsoft Entra ID can access Bing Chat Enterprise in the Microsoft Edge sidebar and bing.com/chat.
