OpenAI announced today that it is expanding its custom instructions feature to free users of ChatGPT. This feature allows users to provide additional information to ChatGPT to help it generate more relevant and accurate responses.
For example, a user could specify their family size, so ChatGPT can give responses about meals, grocery, and vacation planning accordingly. A teacher could say they are teaching fourth-grade math, so ChatGPT can give more specific answers to questions about math.
Custom instructions were previously only available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers, but OpenAI says it is expanding the feature to free users in response to popular demand. The company says that custom instructions are a “powerful way to get the most out of ChatGPT” and that it is committed to making the feature available to as many users as possible.
To use custom instructions, free users will need to create a ChatGPT account and then click on the “Custom instructions” tab. They can then add any information they want ChatGPT to consider when generating responses. For example, they could specify their interests, hobbies, or even their political beliefs.
Once a user has added custom instructions, ChatGPT will use that information to generate more relevant and accurate responses. For example, if a user specifies that they are interested in cooking, ChatGPT will be more likely to give them responses about recipes or cooking tips.
The expansion of custom instructions to free users is a major step forward for ChatGPT. It makes the chatbot more accessible to a wider range of users and allows them to get the most out of the service.
