Welcome, AI enthusiasts.
ChatGPT just got a major upgrade — converging all features into one smooth experience, alongside PDF capabilities and a mysterious ‘Magic Create.’
With the Dev Day Conference (Nov. 6) around the corner, what else does OpenAI have up their sleeves? Let’s dig in…
ChatGPT gets all tools in one place with upgrade
Google bets $2B on OpenAI competitor Anthropic

The Rundown: OpenAI began rolling out a new version of ChatGPT that combines all GPT-4 capabilities — Browsing, DALL-E 3, and Data Analysis — without needing to switch between modes.
The update gives access to all ChatGPT features within the main interface — without toggling through multiple modes.
Users can now upload PDFs and documents with the ability to ‘chat’ or analyze them similarly to Claude and other GPT wrappers.
The release comes ahead of next week’s highly anticipated OpenAI Dev Day, which is expected to have additional major announcements.
The new rollout doesn’t (yet) include plugins — and also found in the code are references to a mysterious "GPT-4 Magic Create”.
The update is slowly getting rolled out to ChatGPT premium users — if you don’t have it yet, just keep spamming refresh.
Our thoughts: Having all the tools available in one spot is a major unlock — opening a world of new possibilities. The update feels like a serious step forward towards the all-in-one AI assistants we’re all anticipating.
TOGETHER WITH GRAFT
The Rundown: Drowning in the vastness of AI? Graft is your lifesaver. Dive deep into AI without the technical hurdles.
💰 Transform Content: Summarize reports in seconds and enable visual search.
🧹 Data Management: Clean, categorize, and cluster data effortlessly.
💬 Engage & Understand: Analyze customer sentiment and improve support.
🛡️ User Experience: Monitor online safety with toxicity detection and optimize search results.
The Rundown: Google just invested up to a whopping $2 billion more in Anthropic, whose LLM Claude has emerged as a serious competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
This adds to Google's previous $550M investment made earlier this year, bringing its total to $2.55B.
The move follows Amazon's recent $4B investment in Anthropic as tech giants continue to ally with AI startups.
Anthropic also signed a $3B+ deal to use Google Cloud, aligning on resources as Google aims to catch up in cloud computing by tying its services to leading AI innovations.
Why it matters: The race is on between AI startups competing for resources and partners. Tech giants are placing their bets on the future AI leaders — and Google and Amazon are two eye-popping names to have on the investor list.

ChatGPT’s latest rollout allows you to upload an image (of anything) without saying what the object is and generating another variation.
Here is a creative example of how to leverage the new combination via @ldjconfirmed:
Upload an image: For this example, the user uploaded a realistic photo of a capybara. Try it with your pet, a favorite photo you’ve taken, etc.
Prompt: Direct ChatGPT to create an image based on your uploaded one in a particular style, format, etc. Ex: “Turn the attached photo of [subject] into [an oil painting, cartoon character, etc.]
Refine and iterate: Continue conversationally editing and directing ChatGPT to make changes as needed!
This image workflow is just one of the many new possibilities unlocked with OpenAI’s latest update. Happy creating!

Anonymous OpenAI leaker Jimmy Apples was active again this weekend, claiming that ‘median-human’ AGI has been achieved in a Q&A. Apples also stated that AI alignment is going well — with the more pressing issue to address being the expected 10% of jobs that will be replaced worldwide.
