Apart from the already existing free version of the ChatGPT chatbot, Open AI launched a premium service in the US alone. It is called ChatGPT Plus and has enhanced capabilities like response time, peak time, and priority access. Users can access the version at $20 per month. The company plans to keep the free version intact for the free segment users. Open AI is also exploring options for economic and business plans as well as data packs to cater to different audience strata. They will soon extend the services to other countries and regions outside the US. Open AI launched the chatbot as a research preview and started improving its limitations, identifying its strength, and expanding its capacity based on user feedback. Users have so far employed it for many professional cases, including editing, drafting, generating ideas, programming, and learning.
