OpenAI’s most powerful large language model (LLM) GPT-4, available through a subscription to ChatGPT Plus, has proven itself superior to the publicly available GPT-3.5. While GPT-4 can still make blunders, also referred to as hallucinations, it is a great option if you’re looking for accurate responses along with other features like AI-generated images, web browsing, data analysis, and access to different GPT-4 bots, all in one place. Here are the technical differences between the free version of ChatGPT and the paid-for version of GPT-4 in ChatGPT Plus.

You should use ChatGPT Plus if…

  • You want more than text responses
  • You want to use custom GPT bots or plugins
  • You’re looking for more nuanced and accurate responses
  • You want up-to-date information

GPT-4 is stronger than GPT-3.5 and is also multimodal, capable of analyzing text, images, and voice. It can accept images as prompt, generate images, vocalize responses, and respond to nuanced queries. Additionally, with access to specialized GPT-4 bots and plugins, users can access custom AI chatbots, and browse the internet, providing up-to-date information. This enhancement enables GPT-4 to better understand the context and distinguish nuances, resulting in more accurate and coherent responses.

You should use free ChatGPT if…

  • You don’t need extra features
  • You’d rather use it for free

ChatGPT, the free version, is already a powerful tool capable of generating text summaries, stories, jokes, shopping lists, code, letters, schedules, resumes, and more. Additionally, it offers an automatic speech recognition system for users’ convenience. If you’re not very tech-savvy and don’t require intricate data analysis, the free version is a great option to consider.
