OpenAI’s paid subscription service, ChatGPT Plus, featuring the latest AI model GPT-4 is now available in India. This service offers early access to new features, faster responses, priority access to new improvements and GPT-4 during peak-usage hours, for a monthly subscription price of $20. However, OpenAI also provides a free version of ChatGPT on its website with some restrictions. Users who don’t want to pay for access can still use ChatGPT on Bing search engine.

OpenAI had a waitlist for access to ChatGPT Plus, but it was made available to all users shortly after its launch. The subscription service helps OpenAI monetize ChatGPT, which has gained massive popularity for its AI-based conversational experience. The technology has also attracted Microsoft, which integrated it into its services, as well as competitors such as Baidu and Google, who are also building similar conversational AI experiences.
However, ChatGPT has also faced controversy and bans due to its human-like responses that can be deceptive. Despite these concerns, the AI-based text-generating service has appealed to the masses with its advanced capabilities, making it a viral sensation.
