ChatGPT is rolling out six new features, OpenAI announced in a Tweet on Wednesday. It is not a huge update but there are definitely some nice additions to make the experience of using the most popular chatbot in the world a little smoother. Here’s a look at all of them.
Prompt examples: The chat screen will now welcome users with suggested prompts so they don’t have to stare at the blank screen. It is very early but this could get interesting when the examples are personalized in the future based on a user’s previous engagements with ChatGPT.
Suggested replies: In addition to suggested prompts, the users will now also be able to use suggested replies to keep the conversation going with ChatGPT. This would help users ask follow-up questions and learn more about the subject of ongoing conversation.
GPT-4 by default: The Plus users of ChatGPT will now be able to select GPT-4 as the default model. They wouldn’t have to switch to it every time they use the app. They can also set GPT-3.5 as the default option if they like.
Upload multiple files: The Plus users can now analyze up to ten files and generate insights based on their data using Code Interpreter beta, which can be turned on from beta features in account settings.
Stay logged in: ChatGPT will now allow users to stay logged in for extended periods beyond two weeks. While the precise duration of this new period wasn’t specified by the company, it was mentioned that whenever users are required to log in, they will be greeted with a noticeably more welcoming page.
Keyboard shortcuts: The chatbot now has keyboard shortcuts which can be seen using ⌘ (Ctrl) + /. An example that the company shared is for copying the last code block: ⌘ (Ctrl) + Shift + C.
It is worth nothing that in spite of adding the new features and improving the LLMs that power its apps, OpenAI has tried keeping things simple compared to the like of Bard, and even Bing Chat – which is built on top of OpenAI’s large language models.
