OpenAI announced yesterday the launch of its premium service, ChatGPT Plus, which is available in the United States for $20 a month.
This new subscription plan will grant users access to ChatGPT during peak times with “faster response times and priority access to new features and improvements,” according to the company.
The premium service is currently in a pilot phase and will be available in the coming weeks. There is a waitlist. in place for now.
Previously, OpenAI was considering introducing a plus or pro version of the service at $42 a month, but the price has been lowered to $20 a month to make it more accessible to a wider range of users, including students and businesses that require reliable access to AI-generated text.
OpenAI also stated that it will continue to offer free access to ChatGPT “to support free access availability for as many people as possible.”
We are piloting ChatGPT Plus, a subscription plan that offers faster response times and reliability during peak hours. And of course, the free tier of ChatGPT is still available. https://t.co/2hEBw6h5Se
