When it’s hot outside, ChatGPT is more popular than ice cream. But it’s hard to make the most of it. It’s now simpler than ever to extract meaningful information from ChatGPT-4 thanks to the recent addition of plugins by OpenAI to the service’s premium tier, ChatGPT Plus.

Plugins for the ChatGPT AI chatbot expand its capabilities. The Expedia and Kayak plugins, for instance, may respond to enquiries about travel in real-time. These add-ons are available in the ChatGPT plugins section.

Although some of these were developed by OpenAI, the great majority were produced by other developers. All ChatGPT plugins can only be used with GPT-4; they are not compatible with the free ChatGPT-3.5 system. There are 263 plugins currently, and more are being uploaded every day.

These plugins provide numerous services. They can offer financial advise, help you make restaurant bookings, improve your ChatGPT prompt writing, and send you links to astrology forecasts powered by AI when it’s appropriate. At this time, all plugins are available for free use. That’s going to alter.

Nevertheless, keep in mind that ChatGPT plugins and extensions are different. It is simpler to utilize any ChatGPT version with the Chrome web browser thanks to the ChatGPT Chrome extensions, like WebChatGPT and Compose AI.

The chatbot’s search functionality is expanded with plugins, which also allow it to connect to outside services. The Chrome Web Store is the only place where extensions, like all other Chrome extensions, can be added. Plugins pose more of a challenge. Here’s how you find and install them.
