Going by the firm behind the chatbot – OpenAI, for $20 (£16) per month, subscribers will get access to the platform even at peak times when it can be hard to log onto, and also “priority access” to new features.

It plans to extend the trial more widely but initially it will only be offered to those on a waiting list, BBC reports.


The free version will still be available, the firm said.

In a blog post, OpenAI said it hoped the subscription would support free access. It currently costs the firm a small amount of money every time the chatbot is used.

ChatGPT provides convincingly human responses to questions using information from the internet, but it is not connected live – it uses data from the internet as it was in 2021.

Within a few days of its launch, OpenAI boss Sam Altman tweeted that it had already been used more than one million times, however, the firm has not released any further data since then.

The chatbot has captured people’s imagination by being able to mimic a wide range of writing styles, from journalist and doctor, to rock star and student essay writer.

The musician Nick Cave described its songwriting attempts in his style as “a grotesque mockery”.

As well as being used for fun, people are asking ChatGPT to write website and marketing copy, find food recipes and write or check program code.

There are fears that pupils are already using it to do their homework, and some cyber security experts have warned that it could be manipulated into writing malicious software known as malware.

New Webbs is an independent online news platform launched with the aim of connecting the world with the latest news on the web.
