The plan will start at $20 per month and offer users faster response times, priority access to new features, and general access to ChatGPT even during peak times.

ChatGPT Free Tier Remains Available

The free ChatGPT tier will continue to be available. OpenAI plans to invite people from its waitlist in the coming months to sign up for ChatGPT Plus, which is currently only available to customers in the U.S. The company plans to expand the service to additional countries and regions "soon."

User Feedback Drives Improvements

OpenAI launched ChatGPT as a research preview to gather user feedback and improve its limitations. Millions of users have provided feedback, leading to several important updates and professional use cases, including drafting and editing content, brainstorming ideas, programming help, and learning new topics.

Future Plans for ChatGPT

OpenAI is "actively exploring" options for lower-cost plans, business plans, data packs, and an API. The company plans to refine and expand its subscription offering based on user feedback and needs. OpenAI loves its free users and wants to continue offering free access to ChatGPT while supporting free access available to as many people as possible.
