How to get GPT-4 for free – Digital Trends

The GPT-4 language model OpenAI used in its flagship ChatGPT chatbot, is a marvel of modern artificial intelligence (AI) development. But if you want to use it, you need to sign up for ChatGPT Plus, a $20 per month subscription tier. Or do you? There are ways to use GPT-4 for free. There’s not even much of a catch. It’s just available for free elsewhere.
Here are the best ways to start using GPT4 for free, right now.
Desktop PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with web access
Microsoft has invested heavily in OpenAI and its ChatGPT chatbot. Part of that deal has seen Microsoft integrate the chatbot into its Bing search engine. It has since been updated with the latest GPT-4 language model, which you can now chat with for free.
Step 1: Navigate to the Bing homepage using the Edge browser. If you don’t have Edge, you can download it here.
Step 2: In the search bar that reads, “Ask me anything,” type your question, and the latest GPT-4 model will answer it.
Step 3: Alternatively, you can navigate to the dedicated chat page, where you have more control over the style of conversation you’ll have with GPT-4, as well as the option to run multiple chats on different topics, which can be handy if you want the responses you received to take into consideration past interactions, or not.
Poe is Quora’s AI platform that lets you play around with a range of different chatbot models. One of them is GPT4.
The only downside to this is that GPT-4 does have limited daily uses on the Poe platform, so you may only be able to give it a handful of prompts before being locked out for the rest of the day. You can log in with another account, but that does make the process a little more complicated.
Step 1: Navigate to and log in with your Quora account, mobile number, Google, or Facebook account.
Step 2: From the chatbots on the left-hand side of the screen, select GPT-4.
Step 3: Type in your prompt in the chat window at the bottom of the page, and you’ll get a swift response from GPT-4.
Ora is a platform for helping you make your own ChatBot, but you can also use it to chat to GPT-4 absolutely free. Sometimes if the service is busy, you are instead given access to GPT-3 only, so query the chatbot if you’re unsure.
Step 1: Navigate to the GPT4 page on Ora.
Step 2: Sign in with your account, or a Google account. Then, if you need to, navigate back to the GPT-4 page.
Step 3: Start typing your prompts to GPT-4 in the pane at the bottom of the window.
Note: Prompts are available on a first-come first-served basis, so if it’s busy, you may have to wait your turn.
There are a few other ways to begin using GPT-4 for free, but these are the best. Want some tips on making the most of this new language model? Here’s how to use GPT-4 to its fullest.
If these models scratch your GPT4 itch, don’t forget to cancel your ChatGPT Plus subscription, too.
OpenAI is rolling out new functionalities for ChatGPT that will allow prompts to be executed with images and voice directives in addition to text.
The AI brand announced on Monday that it will be making these new features available over the next two weeks to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise users. The voice feature is available in iOS and Android in an opt-in capacity, while the images feature is available on all ChatGPT platforms. OpenAI notes it plans to expand the availability of the images and voice features beyond paid users after the staggered rollout.
Most American adults do not trust artificial intelligence (AI) tools like ChatGPT and worry about their potential misuse, a new survey has found. It suggests that the frequent scandals surrounding AI-created malware and disinformation are taking their toll and that the public might be increasingly receptive to ideas of AI regulation.
The survey from the MITRE Corporation and the Harris Poll claims that just 39% of 2,063 U.S. adults polled believe that today’s AI tech is “safe and secure,” a drop of 9% from when the two firms conducted their last survey in November 2022.
Facebook owner Meta is working on an artificial intelligence (AI) system that it hopes will be more powerful than GPT-4, the large language model developed by OpenAI that powers ChatGPT Plus. If successful, that could add much more competition to the world of generative AI chatbots — and potentially bring a host of serious problems along with it.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Meta is aiming to launch its new AI model in 2024. The company reportedly wants the new model to be “several times more powerful” than Llama 2, the AI tool it launched as recently as July 2023.
