OpenAI ChatGPT Plus subscription is launched in India

ChatGPT Plus, the subscription service to access OpenAI’s text-generating AI, is now available in India. ChatGPT Plus introduces GPT-4, the refined AI model that OpenAI released earlier this week.

The paid tier gives customers early access to new features, including GPT-4. ChatGPT Plus launched in the US in February after being in preview for a few weeks and is available for a monthly subscription price of $20. A subscription allows a customer to use ChatGPT even during peak hours, get faster responses and priority on new features and improvements.

OpenAI also continues to offer a free version of ChatGPT, albeit with some limitations, on its website. If you don’t want to pay for access, you can still enjoy the ChatGPT experience through the Bing search engine.

OpenAI initially had a waiting list for users to access ChatGPT Plus. However, shortly after launch, the startup made the subscription service available to all users. The service aims to help OpenAI monetize ChatGPT, which has gone viral in recent months and gained traction for its AI-powered chat experience.

Understandably, ChatGPT has also faced some controversy and bans due to the nature and sophistication of its human responses, which can be misleading. The advanced text chat capabilities certainly appealed to the masses and even enticed Microsoft, an early investor in OpenAI, to integrate the experience into its services. Competitors like Baidu and Google have also started creating similar conversational AI experiences.
