OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 has ushered in a new era of human-computer interaction, offering unprecedented capabilities in natural language understanding and generation. One of the most intriguing aspects of GPT-3.5 is its potential for extensibility through plugins. These plugins allow developers to enhance and customise ChatGPT’s functionality, tailoring it to specific tasks and industries.

In this article, we have discussed what ChatGpt plugins are and how to add plugins to ChatGPT in a few simple and easy ways.


What are ChatGPT plugins?

ChatGPT plugins are add-ons that you can use to make the AI chatbot do more things. You can find these plugins in the ChatGPT plugins store. Most of them are created by third-party developers. These plugins only function with GPT-4, which lets the chatbot use the internet.

In the ChatGPT store, there are over 80 plugins that can do many different tasks. They can help you develop better writing ideas, assist in booking flights and restaurants, provide financial tips, and even share timely links to astrology forecasts.

Remember, ChatGPT plugins and ChatGPT extensions are different. The ChatGPT Chrome extensions, like WebChatGPT and Compose AI, help you use any ChatGPT version more conveniently on the Chrome web browser.
