Is ChatGPT Plus Worth It?

By - Kaustubh Katdare • 1 year ago • 25k views

OpenAI has announced ChatGPT Plus and it costs $20 per month. For that price, you'll get -

  • General access to ChatGPT, even during peak times
  • Faster response times
  • Priority access to new features and improvements

I've been using ChatGPT for the past few weeks and the downtime for me has been minimal and I've no complaints about the response times I'm getting. I don't use it for any serious work (yet).

Do you think ChatGPT Plus is worth it? What else can you get for $20 per month? Let me know.

    Update: ChatGPT-4 was announced and it's only available to the Chat GPT Plus users.

    Do you think early access to the new features makes ChatGPT more desirable?

    It's definitely worth it. I've been using ChatGPT Plus service here in the US since last 2 months.

    ChatGPT Plus Subscription offers several benefits that make it worth the $20/month price point for many users.

    In my opinion, here's are the points in favor of ChatGPT Plus -

    1. High Availability With a ChatGPT Plus subscription, I have uninterrupted access to the service, even during high load periods. It's more reliable whenever you need it.

    2. Responses are super fast Their GPUs and CPUs put you in the top priority queue, resulting in faster response times from ChatGPT.

    This can be particularly helpful for professional users or anyone who values efficiency and quicker turnaround times. I've been using it for all my writing work and couldn't be happier.

    1. Priority access to new features As a ChatGPT Plus subscriber, you'll be among the first to access new features, enhancements, and improvements. For example, I received access to ChatGPT-4 before others.

    2. Faster and better support. Your subscription helps support the availability of free access to ChatGPT for as many people as possible.

    You take a small share in keeping ChatGPT development active. Oh yeah, I do know that Microsoft has infused $10billion in the service.

    ChatGPT subscription is just my way of showing support to the advancement of AI.

    Multiple Use Cases I've been using ChatGPT for content generation, brainstorming, programming help, learning new topics, and more.

    I think the price is justified.

Yes, an engineer can become a doctor. But it won't be easy. Engineering degrees worldwide are mostly 4-year degree courses and medicine too requires an average of 4-5 years followed by mandatory internship. Not everyone has the patience, money and time to dedicate a decade only to learning.

When it comes to building a successful business - does age matter? Well, the data shows that it does. The average age of tech entrepreneurs at the time of IPO is about 43.3 years!

Now that's totally contrasting to the news that we read daily. The Internet is full of success stories of entrepreneurs who became successful business owners and millionaires in their early 20s or 30s. But the data shows the truth - the older you are, the more are your chances of starting a successful business.

The IT and technology industry is going through massive layoffs. The latest news being Salesforce laying off 2500 employees and Meta planning to show pink slip to, if I'm not wrong, 11000 employees worldwide.

How long do you think these layoff cycles will last? Someone said this will continue till January 2023. What are your thoughts?
