ChatGPT Pro Will Soon Offer Paid Features
ChatGPT is amazing as it is, but you may soon pay for better performance. Its creator OpenAI opened the waitlist for its upcoming professional version.
CEO Sam Altman stated that operating ChatGPT has an “eye-watering” cost, equivalent to a few cents for every chat.
It could be why the company announced ChatGPT Pro. You may still use the free version once it comes out, but are you willing to pay for extra features?
What are the features of ChatGPT Pro?
OpenAI has not opened ChatGPT Pro to the public, but it has revealed a few details to Mashable.
The company trained the professional version on a larger and more diverse dataset. It has a higher degree of fluency and accuracy, so its content looks more manmade.
The Pro version enables users to fine-tune the chatbot with task-specific data. As a result, they could improve their performance for specific purposes.
For example, ChatGPT Pro could help many businesses adapt to artificial intelligence by providing their industry-specific data to this tool.
These companies may also incorporate the improved AI into their programs as an API or Application Programming Interface.
Think of it as a program that automatically controls other programs based on your preferences. For example, automated bitcoin traders are APIs that execute trades on crypto exchanges based on user settings.
ChatGPT Pro can also handle more requests than the free version. As a result, it is suitable for large-scale production applications.
How much would ChatGPT Pro cost? AI tool builder Zahid Khawaja showed a screenshot that allegedly shows the monthly cost of the upgraded version.
The image shows that it costs $42.00 monthly. Then, Khawaja doubled down on the claim by showing an alleged screen capture of his subscription.
However, OpenAI execs said the company was “unaware of a $42 per month paid version of ChatGPT.”
You could request access to ChatGPT Pro by filling out OpenAI’s waitlist. If it approves your request, it will contact you to set up a payment process and a “pilot.”
The webpage reminds people that the professional version is “an early experimental program that is subject to change.”
Fortunately, people may continue using the free version even if the Pro version launches. You may also read more Inquirer Tech articles to adapt to the latest digital trends.
