In March, OpenAI initiated the development of ChatGPT plugins, aiming to equip the language model with enhanced capabilities. These plugins were initially accessible to a small group of users during a limited alpha phase. However, OpenAI recently announced that they are expanding access to over 70 third-party plugins, making them available to ChatGPT Plus users.
This significant update allows users to leverage a wide range of plugins, granting ChatGPT the ability to tackle an array of tasks and responsibilities effectively. The expansion of plugin availability demonstrates OpenAI's commitment to providing a more versatile and powerful AI tool for their users.
