OpenAI, the creators of the highly-acclaimed ChatGPT chatbot, have taken the next step in the evolution of their AI language model with the release of a professional version. It may come as no surprise to some, since OpenAI had recently publicly stated that they were looking into ways to monetize the platform. This new advanced version is geared towards businesses and individuals looking to optimize their use of the chatbot, providing them with a multitude of exclusive benefits.
One of the key features of ChatGPT Plus its ability to provide server priority, ensuring that businesses can rely on the AI to function smoothly, even during periods of heavy traffic. Another major benefit of the Plus version is its faster response time. This is achieved by increasing the API request limit, allowing users to generate answers to their queries at a faster rate, providing more efficient access to information, and helping them quickly find the answers they need. This feature also ensures that users have access to the most up-to-date information and responses to their queries.
For those who have used the free version, you have probably run into the issue of ChatGPT randomly deciding to stop mid-way through its text output. Fortunately, the pro versions increased query limit should greatly reduce this. Some of you may have also run into the dreaded “Too many requests in one hour” error, which should be fixed using the pro version. GPT Pro will also give users priority access to new features as soon as they become available, giving them an edge over those using the free version.
ChatGPT Plus is available for $20 per month and can be renewed on a monthly basis. OpenAI is now offering early access to a selected number of users, giving them the opportunity to get hands-on experience before the initial release to the public. The subscription fee will be used to further develop the AI and cover other expenses related to maintaining and improving the service.
If you’re already using the chatbot on a regular basis and have often run into the query limit or other errors, ChatGPT Plus is most likely worth it. With its high server priority, faster response time, and access to new features, it is no surprise that ChatGPT Professional is already gaining traction with businesses.
If you find yourself only using the chatbot for a couple of hours a day at most, it’s highly likely that the standard version of ChatGPT still be completely fine for your use cases. Some people may choose to upgrade to Plus simply for the increased response time and to access it during high-traffic hours. It remains to be seen how OpenAI will handle the servers and what they deem as busy, but hopefully there won’t be any significant changes made to the free version!
