Terse responses in the last few days

I’m hoping this is the right area to place this comment, but I have noticed within the past few days that the response quality has significantly declined. Conversationally, the responses have become very short and lack detail. For lack of a better description, the answers seem cold and distant.
I made updates to the custom instructions to try to adjust, but it seems to have no impact. I am working on the details of a story where I need the conversational aspect to be broad ranging. It now just sticks to the facts. Has something changed that would result in this behavior? Is there a workaround that I’m not aware of?


No one responded (disheartening) but the problem has gone away with the latest update.
