IT admins rejoice: Ring deployment is coming to Bing Chat Enterprise, effectively allowing you to deploy Bing Chat features to a smaller set of users.

Bing Chat Enterprise, which is Bing Chat for professionals and organizations, was released earlier this summer, and Microsoft allowed everyone in the organization to either opt in or opt out. Since then, more and more organizations adopted the service, which prompted IT admins to ask for more deployment options.

And Microsoft listened:

To address this customer request, a Bing Chat Enterprise Service Plan can now choose to roll out Bing Chat Enterprise to a subset of users before deploying across the organization. Once assigned, users signed in with their work or school account (Microsoft Entra ID) can access Bing Chat Enterprise from entry points such as and the Microsoft Edge sidebar. 


However, the ring deployment is not available to all Service Plans just yet: The Bing Chat Service Plan for A3 and A5 licenses is currently unavailable, but Microsoft promises it will be added at a later date. Most likely, later this month, when Microsoft plans to widely release Bing Chat Enterprise.

These customers will be informed of its availability through a Message center post in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
