OpenAI plans to gather user insights as it continues to upgrade features and safety measures for ChatGPT
ChatGPT new features include links to allow users to create and share conversations with others
The paid version costs $20 (INR 1,650) a month to a paid, Indian user
OpenAI’s ChatGPT is now available to the Indian iOS users and has an Android facility with paid plans. Earlier, its mobile application has been made accessible to the iPhone users of 30 countries including India.
Earlier this week, the app accessibility was extended to Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Jamaica, Korea, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria and the UK, excluding India.
OpenAI has also introduced new features including links to allow users to create and share ChatGPT conversations with others.
Writing about the launch of the app across countries, in a blog post OpenAI mentioned, “We’re eager to see how you use the app. As we gather user feedback, we’re committed to continuous feature and safety improvements for ChatGPT.”
The paid version of ChatGPT allows users general access to the AI chatbot, and has a faster response time even during peak times.
ChatGPT is now being trusted for carrying out several functions including writing essays to writing codes.
The iOS version costs a subscription of $20 (INR 1,650) a month. As Indians queued up to register for it on the day of the launch (March 17), ChatGPT suffered glitches and kept declining payments.
In the same month, OpenAI launched the fourth version of the generative AI, which the company claims to be more efficient and productive. It also generates texts with closer resemblance to human speech.
The development comes when AI adoption is gaining height rapidly. Tech giant Microsoft that backs OpenAI, itself has announced plans of launching Bing AI, while Google has plans to launch Big Bard to enter the league.
India has been upfront in adopting AI even before ChatGPT was launched. Indian SaaS startup Writesonic already had a similar chat interface titled ChatSonic.
This interface integrates Google Search and text-to-speech within its operation, making it efficient enough to produce the most up-to-the-minute answers to your questions.
Further, Union Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajeev Chandrasekhar said recently that India will be having its own AI powered datasets with three centres of excellence in the country.
On the global end, according to a World Economic Forum report, training workers to utilise AI and big data, currently ranks third in the list of the top skills in demand by enterprises, for their employees. It further states that in the next five years the skills will be prioritised by 42% of surveyed companies.
