during my initial post Interacting with ChatGPT Plus, I wasn’t entirely convinced that OpenAI’s $20 per month subscription was worth it. Although it was a lot of fun to test out the upgraded chatbot powered by GPT-4, the free version seemed good enough for most of the claims. I’m not a software developer who needs a skilled coding assistant; I’m a chatbot geek to have fun conversations with AI and brainstorm a bit.
On May 12, OpenAI announced that users who pay for ChatGPT Plus will be able to access beta versions of its chatbot with web browsing and plug-ins. Curious about the new features, I avoided an evening of eating out, ate some gross leftovers, and spent money on finally upgrading my personal ChatGPT account. So far, the web browsing features are loading slowly and the answers still contain fake information sometimes.
I’ll probably keep my subscription even with that in mind, because using a chatbot to comb through the Internet is charming and useful in multiple ways. Thinking of getting a ChatGPT Plus subscription to play with the web browsing trial? Here’s how to enable the beta feature and some tips to get you started.
How to access ChatGPT by browsing the web
It only takes a few steps to launch the web browsing version of ChatGPT. First, log into your OpenAI account or create a new user profile. Don’t forget that you will need to pay $20 per month for ChatGPT Plus to use the trial features.
Next, visit chat.openai.com to check out ChatGPT. In the lower left corner, click on the three dots next to your email address, then select Email settings And Experimental features. Make sure the button is next to surf the web Green and sticky to the right.
The last step is to go back to the main ChatGPT page, start a new chat window, and click on GPT-4 option at the top of the screen. Hover over “GPT-4” and select browsing Allows the chatbot to search the Internet for answers to your prompts. Subscribers are allowed a limited number of web surfing prompts per day.
Advice for trying the trial version
Before you begin, it’s important to understand the difference between the new plugin’s features and ChatGPT’s experimental web browsing. Plugins are much more specific and involved than the web browsing option. For example, you could theoretically order your groceries through Instacart or start booking your flights on Expedia using ChatGPT add-ons. I need to do more testing before recommending it, but what I’ve seen from browsing the web makes my subscription worth the money.
How do you use it? Let’s start with something fun and simple. I’m excited for the new game Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom game, so I asked ChatGPT for tips to do well when starting out. He searched the web for “a new Zelda game guide for beginners”, then the chatbot simulated clicking on this helpful Polygon article, then visited the site’s homepage several times as well as its YouTube page. Despite the chatbot getting a bit lost in the journey and blaming “time constraints” for not providing a more comprehensive answer, ChatGPT manages to paraphrase key details from the Polygon Strategy Guide.
Are you looking for a horror movie to watch on Netflix? ChatGPT is recommended mental patient (1960) Based on this pasting article by W Hush (2016) based on the Uproxx blog. Maybe you want to see something in theatres? I requested showtimes at a nearby AMC for after work. The chatbot remembered i was located in san francisco on a previous claim and found several night shows for Super Mario Bros movie And Black Berry.
