Something like this had to come. When Facebook (now Meta) bought WhatsApp, they had to do something to make it profitable, like advertising or interconnection with other apps like Messenger and Instagram. The Twitter thing was seen as soon as the purchase was confirmed, although in this case we are seeing something like a headless bird running. OpenAI has created something of its own that is of great interest to users, and the time to make a move to start earning money has already arrived: Chat GPT Plus.
Last week my partner Darkcrizt posted an article that it had two details incorrect, but it seemed that it was going to be that way at the time of the information appearing. The first of them was that its name was going to be ChatGPT Pro, and the second that it was going to have a price of $42 per month. A few hours ago, yesterday February 1, OpenAI confirmed the correct information, and in it we can find good and bad news.
ChatGPT Plus will not "upload" to the free version
The price of ChatGPT Plus will be $ 20 per month, but at the moment it is only available in the US. The good news is that for the user of the free version, things will not change much, to say nothing. When something is an addition, Spanish-speakers also use the word "plus" to refer to it, and the name of ChatGPT Plus will be just that, something else. In this way, those of us who do not pay will not have anything less than today.
What you will get by paying the $20/month will be:
- General access to ChatGPT, even at peak times.
- Faster responses.
- Priority access to new features and enhancements.
In the past few weeks, I think we've all seen messages that ChatGPT couldn't respond due to server overload, and that's something paid users won't see. The second point seems to be closely related to the first, but the third is already for those who want everything. When there is something new and useful, they will be able to use it instantly; users of the free version do not, and it is not known when we will be able to do so.
With waiting list
As in many other services, there will be a waiting list, and that can only be used from the start in the US. Access and support will be taken "soon" to other countries, without giving more details about the deadlines. According to OpenAI, they love us free users and will continue to offer free access to ChatGPT, and the subscription version will help keep all of this viable.
In the future, they say:
We plan to refine and expand this offering based on your feedback and needs. We will also be launching the (ChatGPT API waiting list) soon, and we are actively exploring options for lower cost plans, enterprise plans, and data packages for higher availability.
After knowing the price and conditions, things don't look too bad, and those of us who want use these types of tools to be more productive, without cheating, we appreciate it.
