ChatGPT Releases Plugins

Things just keep getting crazier in AI. The team at OpenAI just released plugins for ChatGPT, effectively making thousands of websites completely obsolete.

Developers are now dropping everything to rush and go all in on creating ChatGPT plugins, with many labeling it as the equivalent of the initial release of the iOS App Store.

Some of the first third-party plugins have been created by Expedia, Instacart, OpenTable, Shopify, Slack, Speak, Wolfram, Zapier, and more. Here's a quick rundown:

  • Expedia- Planning trips and booking accommodations

  • Instacart- Ordering groceries

  • OpenTable- Getting restaurant recommendations and booking

  • Shopify- Searching for products from the world's greatest brands

  • Speak- Learning languages

  • Wolfram- Accessing computation, math, and real-time data

  • Zapier- Interacting with 5,000+ apps like Google Sheets, Trello, and Gmail

Another incredible new capability includes a new plugin that uses the Bing API, allowing ChatGPT to browse the current, up-to-date internet.Watch demo.

History is unraveling right before our very eyes. This is yet another opportunity for developers to create million-dollar startups, and we're incredibly excited to cover and unravel all of the products that will come out of this.
