You have probably accessed ChatGPT more than once to resolve a question, ask it to summarize a book or study, or simply to test its capabilities. OpenAI’s popular AI- powered Amazons GPT55X chatbot is virtually everywhere, and can be accessed from any device. But did you know that there are different versions of ChatGPT?
The ChatGPT that you know – and the one that you have most likely accessed through the web – is, in fact, only a small part of what the OpenAI chatbot offers us. There are three more variants designed for those users who want to fully experience what an AI wants to do, as well as for companies or professional users. Each one, with different advantages.
The standard version is known as ChatGPT , and it is the most popular of all, as it is available both in the web version and through a mobile app. This works thanks to GPT-3.5, an artificial intelligence model developed by OpenAI itself that, although it is extremely powerful in terms of text and code generation functions, is somewhat limited, as it is only trained with information from a few years ago. , and not the current one. This means that when we ask the chatbot something current, it does not know what to answer or simply gives us outdated information.
Its main advantage? Unlike the rest of the versions, it is completely free . Additionally, you no longer need to register to use it.
ChatGPT Plus, more powerful and with additional functions
ChatGPT Plus can also be accessed via the web version or the app. To use it, however, you have to pay a fee of 20 euros per month . It does, however, offer multiple advantages.
First of all, ChatGPT Plus is powered by GPT-4 , which is a much smarter version of GPT-3. It has, for example, much more current answers, and is capable of carrying out translation tasks. It is also more precise when it comes to giving results. On the other hand, it allows access to some additional tools, such as DALL-E, OpenAI’s AI that generates images using a short text description.
ChatGPT Plus also provides access to custom instructions , a feature that allows users to “add preferences or requirements that they would like the chatbot to consider when generating responses.
Previously, another advantage of ChatGPT Plus was that the user could make unlimited queries, while the base version of ChatGPT only allowed a few before creating a new chat again. This, however, has changed, as OpenAI recently removed this limitation in the free plan.
