ChatGPT can now provide answers in real time, information no longer limited to September 2021 – India Today

ChatGPT has received a major update, which will make the AI chatbot even more useful. The AI tool will soon be able to answer your queries in real time. The current setup allows ChatGPT to only provide information that it had acquired till September 2021. The AI chatbot presently lacks the ability to provide solutions or answers in real time. However, OpenAI has now confirmed that ChatGPT will now be able to surf the internet. The feature is being rolled out to ChatGPT Plus subscribers and even enterprise users but the company has said the feature will soon be used by non-subscribers as well.
"Browsing is available to Plus and Enterprise users today, and we'll expand to all users soon. To enable, choose Browse with Bing in the selector under GPT-4," OpenAI announced on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. Currently, Bard and Microsoft Bing, the other two AI platforms have access to real-time information. However, Bard tends to cook up responses that are sometimes not true or accurate. While interacting with such chatbots, it is always better to cross check and verify before acting upon the information provided by the chatbots.

On a related note, OpenAI announced that ChatGPT can now have a voice conversation with its users. “We are beginning to roll out new voice and image capabilities in ChatGPT. They offer a new, more intuitive type of interface by allowing you to have a voice conversation or show ChatGPT what you’re talking about,” the company said in a blog post.
Imagine you are traveling and you see an interesting landmark. Instead of just looking at it, you can take a picture and then start a live conversation with ChatGPT about what makes that landmark special. Similarly, when you are back home and wondering what to cook for dinner, you can snap pictures of the contents of your fridge and pantry. ChatGPT can help you figure out what dishes you can make with those ingredients. You can also ask follow-up questions to get step-by-step recipes, making cooking easier.f your child needs help with a math problem, you can take a photo of the problem, circle it, and ChatGPT will provide hints and explanations to help both you and your child understand and solve the problem together. It's like having a virtual tutor right there to assist with homework.
