ChatGPT Plus with GPT4: price, release date, features… all offer details –

OpenAI had to make its “undermining” profitable. While Google is responding with its own AI chatbot called Bard, the startup that’s been creating hype for months now is now offering a paid version of its conversational agent: ChatGPT Plus.

ChatGPT Plus Pricing and Availability

The premium version of ChatGPT is now available in France. must be considered $20 subscription and $4 VATaround €22.40 per month at the current exchange rate. This is a pretty high amount for a casual user, but it should appeal to businesses that don’t want to be blocked due to too much traffic.

For OpenAI, this paid version is primarily intended to offset the cost of running a chatbot in its free version.. The AI ​​tool surpassed 100 million active users at the end of January 2023, just two months after its launch, according to an analyst at Swiss bank UBS. This means a rise in the costs associated with the use of significant computing power: when the chatbot was opened to the general public, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman calculated that each chat cost an average of 10 cents of dollars.

What are the benefits of ChatGPT Plus?

As Open AI describes on its website, those who opt for this premium version will enjoy “a number of benefits.” They will benefit from privileged access to the chatbot and can use it even during peak times. They will also have shorter response timeAnd priority access to new features and improvementsproposed by Open AI as an AI text classifier. However, we are awaiting details on these new features that will complete the offering… Open AI has undoubtedly focused on launching GPT-4 , its language model, which has just become official. According to Sam Altman, President of OpenAI, it will be “more creative than previous models.”

New tools coming soon:

Designed to be premium “AI text classifier”able to determine whether a text was written by a human or a machine, it is intended, in particular, for teachers and professionals.

The ChatGPT API should be available soon for developers looking to integrate chatbot capabilities into their own products. More proposals are expected: “We are also actively exploring options for cheaper plans, commercial plans and data packages for greater availability,” Open AI clarifies. The idea of ​​introducing data packets suggests that ChatGPT training in this way can be fine-tuned for certain actions. Note that Microsoft, which is already investing more than a billion dollars in OpenAI, plans to integrate the “Smart Overview” meeting summary feature built on top of the GPT-3 engine into Teams Premium; business tool. Given the links that exist between Open AI and Microsoft, one can imagine adding these features to ChatGPT Plus.

(Really) faster operation:

Is ChatGPT Plus really faster and crash-proof during peak hours? On Medium, computer scientist Kevin Menier sums up his experiments. “The responses are instant and the response time is significantly faster than the free version. I get fast responses even when the servers are overloaded. I logged in this morning and saw a message that there is currently high demand. I bombarded him with requests and received responses as quickly as yesterday, around 22:00, when I first tried it, ”he wrote.

As for quality? “It’s hard to say if it’s getting better. I think the model is the same (i.e., surprisingly good),” the engineer notes.

In another blog post, he shares the results of a “speed test” between ChatGPT and ChatGPT Plus. For 5 different instructions, he recorded response times: “In all cases, ChatGPT Plus is significantly more efficient than ChatGPT. My test shows a clear increase in speed with an average factor of 2.56”.

Is GPT-4 integrated into ChatGPT Plus?

ChatGPT Plus users will have access to GPT-4, its new multi-modal language model that now accepts both images and text. However, it is planned to limit the use due to the limited capabilities of the system and in anticipation of an increase in the coming months. “We will adjust the exact usage limit based on demand and system performance in practice, but we expect to be heavily capped in terms of capacity.”

OpenAI also mentions the possibility of creating a new subscription tier for “greater use of GPT-4”, but we don’t have more details on this at the moment.

Simple Pro version of ChatGPT

While OpenAI doesn’t set it in stone, it’s clearly a professional version of its chatbot: “We’ve seen users find value in a variety of business use cases, including writing and editing content, brainstorming ideas, helping with programming, and learning. new themes,” the company said in a statement. However, only the paid version of this solution could in this particular case guarantee the absence of (maximum) errors and false information.

Finally, the fact that OpenAI has to make up for the cost of its free version by offering a premium version raises questions about the viability of the latter. Because in the meantime, Google is preparing its response with Bard, a conversational agent that should do roughly the same thing, but better, according to the company. Behind him is all the technical, economic, commercial, research and financial power of Alphabet. In addition, I’m not sure that Bard needs a paid version that is effective and, above all, publicly available.

As our colleagues at explain, Bard is powered by Google’s Language Model for Conversational Applications (LaMDA) and “it will use all the information on the web to provide answers. That in itself is a big difference from ChatGPT, which can only access information until 2021… and has no Internet access.”
