The ChatGPT plugins, introduced at the end of March, are now being rolled out to all OpenAI ChatGPT Plus accounts. By the end of this week, over 70 third-party plugins will be available to all ChatGPT Plus users. Plus access costs $20 per month.
Once your account is approved, you can enable plugins in the ChatGPT settings under the “Beta Features” section. There are two sliders, one for plugins and one for web browsing, which can be enabled independently. You can then choose plugins using the model selector and enable individual plugins in the plugin store.
ChatGPT automatically uses plugins.
According to OpenAI, ChatGPT’s access to plugins works automatically after activation. ChatGPT “knows” when and how to search the internet for relevant topics and events or access activated plugins.
Among the more than 70 plugins are numerous trade and search platforms, such as for clothing, real estate, travel, food, and car rentals, as well as practical applications, such as loading PDF content into a chat for discussion with ChatGPT, creating prompts, or searching for beautiful single-word domains.
Currently, there is one limitation in the system: a maximum of three plugins can be active per chat session. Therefore, to get the best results, you should consider what task you want to accomplish with ChatGPT and then select the top three out of over 70 plugins.
Developers interested in plugins can sign up for the waiting list.
