What is GPT-4?
GPT-4, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4, is an AI language model developed by OpenAI. The model was announced on March 21, 2023, and is expected to be the most advanced AI language model yet, with 10x more parameters than its predecessor, GPT-3. This model promises to be a more capable and accurate model that can be used for various language-related tasks, such as writing, translation, and answering complex questions.
Accessing GPT-4: The Challenge
While the announcement of GPT-4 has generated excitement in the tech community, accessing the model is not easy. Unlike its predecessor, GPT-4 can only be accessed through ChatGPT Plus, OpenAI’s subscription-based platform. To use GPT-4, you need to be a paying subscriber of ChatGPT Plus, which costs $20 per month. However, there are two hidden ways to access this language model today for free.
Option 1: Install Quora’s Poe App
The first way to access GPT-4 for free is by installing Quora’s Poe app. Poe is a chatbot that uses OpenAI’s language models to generate responses to user queries. While Poe uses a range of models, including GPT-4, not all of them are accessible to non-paying users. If you’re not a paying subscriber, you can only access GPT-4 once for free. After that, you need to subscribe to ChatGPT Plus to use the model again.
To access GPT-4 via Poe, you need to install the Poe app on your iOS device or you can visit this website to access it on your desktop. Once installed, open the app and start chatting with the chatbot. When you send your first message, Poe will use this model to generate a response. Note that while Poe supports multi-modal responses, GPT-4’s multi-modal capabilities are not accessible through Poe.
Option 2: Sign Up for Microsoft’s New Bing
The second way to access GPT-4 for free is by signing up for Microsoft’s new Bing search engine. In a blog post, Microsoft revealed that the new Bing uses GPT-4 for its search queries. While the GPT-4 model used by Bing is customized for search, it still provides users with access to the latest AI language capabilities.
To access this model via Bing, you need to sign up for the new Bing search engine. Once you’ve signed up, you can start using the search engine to ask complex questions or get information on various topics. While this model used by Bing does not support multi-modal responses, it provides accurate and detailed answers to user queries.
GPT-4 promises to be a groundbreaking AI language model that can change the way we interact with machines. While accessing the model is currently limited to paying subscribers of ChatGPT Plus, the two hidden ways described above provide non-paying users with access to the latest AI language capabilities. Whether you choose to install Quora’s Po app or sign up for Microsoft’s new Bing, it is now accessible to everyone, regardless of their subscription status.
