Aiming to monetize what’s become a viral phenomenon, OpenAI today launched a new pilot subscription plan for ChatGPT, its text-generating AI that can write convincingly human-like essays, poems, emails, lyrics and more. Called ChatGPT Plus and starting at $20 per month, the service delivers a number of benefits over the base-level ChatGPT, OpenAI says, including general access to ChatGPT even during peak times, faster response times and priority access to new features and improvements.

The free ChatGPT tier is here to stay — it’s not going away. As for ChatGPT Plus, it’s only available to customers in the U.S. at the moment. OpenAI says it’ll begin the process of inviting people from its waitlist in the coming months and look to expand Plus to additional countries and regions “soon.”

“We launched ChatGPT as a research preview so we could learn more about the system’s strengths and weaknesses and gather user feedback to help us improve upon its limitations,” OpenAI wrote in a blog post. “Since then, millions of people have given us feedback, we’ve made several important updates and we’ve seen users find value across a range of professional use cases including drafting and editing content, brainstorming ideas, programming help and learning new topics.”

ChatGPT Plus might be the first of several plans to come, OpenAI hints. In the blog post, the company says that it’s “actively exploring” options for lower-cost plans, business plans and data packs in addition to an API.

“We love our free users and will continue to offer free access to ChatGPT. By offering this subscription pricing, we will be able to help support free access availability to as many people as possible,” the company continued. “We plan to refine and expand this offering based on your feedback and needs.”

The ChatGPT thing is going to be huge. Once people figure out how to use it and what it is good and bad for, and with the advances that are most definitely going to be coming down the pipe I predict this is going to a game change probably bigger than Google.

Currently I think this is the next crypto - something that a lot of people will be talking about, many people will gamble on, few people really understand, and with very little impact on how business works.

A chatGPT query right now is 2,000 times as expensive as a google search, and simultaneously a lot less informative. I don't see how it can become massively cheaper right now.

When I said it was going to be bigger than google I was not thinking about search. I am talking about the other things that ChatGPT can be good at which is a lot more than just being a search engine.

    Recently tried out ChatGPT about WE triggering. Wow it's capable of giving a somewhat legitimate response.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am sure it has read all the info on the forums here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i think triggering is just scripting and chatgpt is real good at code
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I suppose so. It's interesting how it can explain in so much detail.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    But yet it won't work.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it does a bad ass job doing excel vba code it has leveled me up at my job when I deal with excel that is for sure
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nice! I love Excel coding as well. Has always been using Google to help me. Maybe I'll use ChatGPT next time when I need it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah whatever it puts out even if it is not perfect I can fix it and the latest version of chatgpt can create websites from pictures it will not be long until it can do that with almost all the tools

    Im worried they'll change things for worse
  • jonas jonas:
    A lot more low quality content, a lot more half-baked stuff.
  • jonas jonas:
    If you're good enough to spot the mistakes of the answers you don't need it in the first place. If you aren't good enough, you're gonna rely on some half-correct stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    the earlier AI is and has been used extensively for publishing news and other content for a while now
  • jonas jonas:
    I used to be active on quora, it's now flooded with extremely similar, superficial answers that often miss the point of the question
