ChatGPT surpasses 100 million users just 2 months after launch

OpenAI ChatGPT

OpenAI’s ChatGPT has seen some exponential growth in its short lifespan by gathering over 57 million monthly users within the first month of availability. Now, a new report from UBS estimates that ChatGPT has surpassed 100 million monthly active users, with an average of 13 million daily unique visitors in January. Thus making it the fastest-growing consumer application in history, even outpacing popular social media apps such as TikTok, which took nine months to reach the same number of users, and Instagram, which took two and a half years.

Why’s everyone using ChatGPT?

ChatGPT’s meteoric rise can be attributed to the chatbot’s ability to answer questions in a human-like manner. Its conversational skills are unparalleled, making it a go-to for users looking for quick and mostly accurate answers. Additionally, the chatbot continually learns and adapts to users’ needs through advanced machine-learning algorithms, leading to improved accuracy and relevance in its responses.

However, ChatGPT’s ability to write in a human-like manner has raised concerns among educators as students are using the chatbot to write essays and homework. This is because ChatGPT’s responses, which may not be perfect, are often close enough to what a teacher might expect from a student.

What’s next for ChatGPT?

While OpenAI is currently offering ChatGPT for free, the company has plans to start charging for the service in the future. This is because the cost of running a service like ChatGPT is significant, and the company has already started testing a $20 monthly subscription in the United States, offering faster response speeds, more reliability, and priority access to new features. However, it is important to note that a free version will still be available, but only during periods of low demand.

Further, Microsoft, the largest investor in OpenAI, has also announced plans to integrate ChatGPT and other OpenAI models into its consumer and enterprise products. The company is already working with OpenAI to deploy the chatbot into Bing search results and integrate its language AI technology into Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook apps. This move by Microsoft has sparked concerns among industry giants like Google to create a rival.
