OpenAI launches ChatGPT Plus, a new subscription service
If you’re a fan of ChatGPT but tired of finding the “full capacity” AI chatbot, you’re in luck.
OpenAI, the company behind the hot new tool, is launching ChatGPT Plus, a paid subscription service that will give you general access to ChatGPT, even during peak hours. The service also promises faster response times, as well as priority access to new features and improvements.
ChatGPT Plus is launching as a pilot program and will be available to customers in the US for $20/month. OpenAI will be inviting people from its waitlist over the next few weeks, with wider availability in other countries shortly after.
The program is cheaper than some expected – one early access user shared a video of the paid version, revealing a subscription cost of $42/month.
OpenAI said it would continue to offer a free version of ChatGPT. Additionally, the company said in a blog post, “we are actively exploring options for lower cost plans, business plans, and data packs for more uptime.”
For developers who want to integrate chatbot capabilities into their own products, OpenAI will soon launch a ChatGPT API (you can find the waiting list here).
