One of the biggest announcements this March is undoubtedly GPT-4. The new language model developed by OpenAI arrives to renew GPT-3 with many more capabilities, such as the possibility of detecting up to 25,000 words of text or image recognition to offer different information; from the name of a plant to the crafts that you can do with the materials that appear in the photograph. The AI, of course, goes way beyond these two features, and the best way to see that is to try it out first hand. We explain step by step how you can now access GPT-4 in ChatGPT.
For the moment, heThe only way to access GPT-4 is through ChatGPT Plus, the Premium version of ChatGPT. This paid variant arrived a few months ago as part of OpenAI’s strategy to obtain income that allows them to continue advancing the development of AI products. Among the advantages of ChatGPT Plus is the possibility of unlimited access to the chatbot, even at peak times, when in the free version there is usually a waiting list. Another advantage, precisely, is that of early access to new products, such as GPT-4.
OpenAI, yes, ensures that they will have priority access to the new AI, but will only be able to use it in a limited way. That is to say, it is probable that during the first weeks not all the capabilities of GPT-4 will be available or that there will be a maximum number of questions that can be asked of the mentioned model.
“ChatGPT Plus subscribers will have access to GPT-4 at chat.openai.com with a usage limit. We will adjust the exact usage limit based on demand and how the system performs in practice, but we expect capacity to be severely constrained (although we will scale and optimize in the coming months).”
