ChatGPT Plus gets new features for file upload and multimodal support

OpenAI, the research company behind the powerful GPT-4 language model, has announced new beta features for ChatGPT Plus subscribers.

ChatGPT Plus is a chatbot service that lets users interact with GPT-4 in various modes, such as browsing the web, writing code, or creating art.

ChatGPT Plus Gets New File Upload and Advanced Data Analysis

One of the new features is the ability to upload files and work with them using ChatGPT. Users can upload text, image, audio, or video files and ask ChatGPT to perform various tasks on them, such as summarizing, analyzing, editing, or converting them.

For example, users can upload a spreadsheet file and ask ChatGPT to generate a chart or a report based on the data.

ChatGPT will use its Advanced Data Analysis feature to process the file and produce the desired output.

Multimodal support

Another new feature is multimodal support, which means that ChatGPT can automatically switch between different modes based on the context of the conversation.

In the example above, ChatGPT shows the correct result automatically based on the user’s request without requiring them to select DALL-E 3 and enter the prompt.

Users no longer have to manually select modes like Browse with Bing from the GPT-4 dropdown menu — ChatGPT will instead infer what they want to do and use the appropriate mode.

For example, if a user asks ChatGPT to show them the latest news, ChatGPT will use the Browse with Bing mode to search the web and display the results. If a user asks ChatGPT to write a poem, ChatGPT will use the Creative Writing mode to generate a poem.

A Glimpse of ChatGPT Enterprise

The new features are similar to some of the office features offered by ChatGPT Enterprise, which is a chatbot service for businesses and organizations. ChatGPT Enterprise allows users to collaborate with GPT-4 on various projects and workflows, such as creating documents, presentations, or websites.

However, ChatGPT Plus is still a standalone individual chatbot subscription that does not require any integration with other platforms or tools. The new features will enhance the user experience and provide more functionality for ChatGPT Plus subscribers.

Not just text files

ChatGPT is not limited to just working with text files. It can also handle image files and use its DALL-E 3 feature to create or modify images based on user requests.

On Threads, a forum for ChatGPT users, a user posted screenshots of a conversation where they uploaded an image of a capybara and asked ChatGPT to create a Pixar-style image based on it.

ChatGPT used DALL-E 3 to generate an image of a cute capybara wearing glasses and headphones. The user then uploaded another image of a wiggly skateboard and asked ChatGPT to insert that image into the previous one. ChatGPT did so and also added a hat on the skateboard for some reason.

What is the difference between ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise?

ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT Enterprise are two distinct subscription plans for ChatGPT, a chatbot service that makes use of OpenAI‘s powerful GPT-4 language model. They differ in terms of features, pricing, and usage limits.

Here are some of the key distinctions:

  • ChatGPT Plus is designed for individual users who want to interact with GPT-4 in various modes, such as browsing the web, writing code, or creating art.
  • ChatGPT Enterprise is designed for businesses and organizations who want to integrate GPT-4 into their applications and workflows, such as creating documents, presentations, or websites.
