Welcome, AI enthusiasts.
OpenAI just swung the doors open on its highly-anticipated GPT Store, alongside additional updates like a new Teams plan and adaptive memory capabilities.
While ChatGPT may have gotten a bit lazy over the holidays, the OpenAI team clearly had productivity on its resolution list — shipping FAST in the new year. Let’s get into it…
OpenAI launches GPT Store and ChatGPT Team Plan
Steam updates policy to allow AI in game creation
How to access GPT-4 Turbo with Copilot
ByteDance releases MagicVideo V2

The Rundown: OpenAI just announced the official launch of the GPT Store, allowing users to find GPTs and builders profit off of their created AI assistants.
The GPT Store features over 3M GPTs created by the community — featuring a variety of categories, a trending leaderboard, and curated picks.
A revenue program for U.S. builders is set to launch ‘in Q1’, rewarding creators based on user engagement with their GPTs.
OpenAI also announced a new ChatGPT Team Plan, priced at $25/month/user (annual) or $30/month (monthly), offers a shared workspace and user management tools.
ChatGPT personalization and long-term memory have also started rolling out, allowing GPT to carry over memory between chats and improve over time.
Why it matters: With discoverability nearly impossible over the last few months, the Store launch (and future revenue incentives) puts the spotlight back on the community-built bots. New personalization features will also help continue transforming ChatGPT into a more adaptive, user-specific assistant.

The Rundown: Game publisher Valve just issued new rules enabling Steam developers to release games leveraging AI after previous controversy around rejections.
Valve's policy shift comes after earlier rejections of AI-generated game submissions, causing confusion and controversy in the developer community.
If AI is used, creators must now disclose the use of pre-generated AI content, like art and sound, and confirm it's not illegal or infringing.
Steam's game store pages will now indicate if a game contains AI, with options for players to report any illegal AI-generated content.
Actor’s union SAG-AFTRA also announced a deal with Replica Studios, setting guidelines for AI voice acting licensing in video games.
Why it matters: While the news is likely to anger a large sector of creatives that still view AI as a destructive force — a blanket ban on using a tool that supercharges development was never going to last. However, as the tech improves (and copyright battles rage on), policy enforcement will continue to be difficult.
The Rundown: GPT-4 Turbo is now quietly rolling out for free in Microsoft Copilot — gradually giving some users access to OpenAI’s most advanced model without the $20/month price tag.
Thanks to Paul Covert for sharing this tutorial to see if you have access.
Head to Copilot.microsoft.com.
Check to see if you have access to GPT-4 Turbo by pressing Ctrl+U (or Cmd+option+U on Mac) to open the page’s source code. Then hit Ctrl+F, and type ‘gpt4t’. If it finds that term, you have access.
If you have it, you can now access larger context windows, better and quicker responses, and a more recent knowledge cutoff than GPT-4!
If you don’t see gpt4t in the code, don’t worry. The new features are being rolled out gradually, and you’ll have access shortly.
The Rundown: ByteDance (parent company of TikTok) researchers just introduced MagicVideo-V2 for text-to-video generation, integrating multiple modules and enhancements to outperform top models.
The model starts from a high-resolution reference image generated from a text prompt.
The image is then animated into keyframe sequences at a lower resolution before being refined and extended for smoother motion.
In human evaluations, magicVideo-V2 outperformed leading text-to-video models like Runway, Pika Labs, and Stable Diffusion Video.
Why it matters: The limits of AI video generation continue to be pushed, with ByteDance staking its claim with MagicVideo in the impressively crowded field. One has to wonder — are these AI gains the result of having millions of viral TikTok videos to train on?
