What is ChatGPT Plus and what does it include?

In February 2023, OpenAI announced ChatGPT Plus. It’s a subscription plan for ChatGPT that unlocks a range of benefits to subscribers, including priority access to the AI chatbot (even during peak times), faster response times, and first dibs on trying new features and improvements. It’s basically for those who want a more reliable, efficient ChatGPT experience. For instance, OpenAI is hoping to make the service more accessible to a wide range of users, including students and businesses, who may need a reliable AI tool to generate text.

How much does ChatGPT Plus cost?

ChatGPT Plus is priced at $20 per month. That’s not a bad price when you consider OpenAI was rumoured to be considering a monthly fee of $42 for its paid offering.

Can you still use ChatGPT for free?

Yes. OpenAI plans to continue providing free access to the standard ChatGPT service. It said paid users will “help support free access availability to as many people as possible”.

What is ChatGPT and how does it work?

ChatGPT is an AI-powered chatbot developed by San Francisco-based research lab OpenAI. It is designed to respond to your prompts and questions with human-like responses. It can also write essays, solve math problems, and even do fun things like tell you how to flush a toilet step by step in the style of Dolly Parton’s voice if you ask it. The chatbot uses machine learning and language processing to understand and respond to you in real time. Because it’s free and easy to use, ChatGPT has exploded since launching in late 2022.
