“ChatGPT will soon be paid, it will cost $42 a month”
Will ChatGPT be paid soon? A few screenshots suggesting this have been circulating on Reddit, but skeptics question their veracity.
Listen, listen: ChatGPT will soon be paid. And not only that: it will also cost half a blow, a good 42 dollars a month. Some Reddit users swear by it and reported receiving a pop-up notice with the proposal to subscribe to a premium version of the popular artificial intelligence.
But is it really so? More than someone has questioned the veracity of the screenshots circulated on the net, and OpenAI , the startup that created and owns the chatbot, has refrained from resolving the issue with a public statement.
In short, as often happens, the news is not there. Rather, we have several conflicting rumors and rumors born on Reddit. The screenshots circulating in these hours – true or not – show the invitation to subscribe to a premium version of ChatGPT , which would offer some exclusive functions, as well as priority access to the app.
In particular, ChatGPT Premium would allow you to receive the new chatbot functions before anyone else and, above all, it would guarantee that you can use it at any time, even when access to the bot is prevented due to “excess traffic”. Additionally, OpenAI should also grant subscribers higher priority, which would translate into faster word processing speed.
Also according to the rumors circulated on Reddit, OpenAI should still allow everyone to use the bot even without a subscription. Anyone who wants can subscribe to obtain exclusive benefits, those who are not interested can continue to use it for free with all current limits.
But are we sure that this is really the case? There is still nothing official, and more than someone has raised important suspicions. What stink is above all the price: 42 dollars a month. An unusual figure, which is also the answer to the meaning of life according to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Not to mention the fact that it would be a sum that would cut off an exorbitant number of non-Western markets from ChatGpt premiun.
