OpenAI is launching new features super fast right now and we as developer can benefit greatly in keeping up to date with this generative ai trend. This post will include the biggest announcement from OpenAI for February and Mars.

Plus Subscription

In February ChatGPT introduced Plus Subscription for 20$ per month.

Back then the Plus Subscription included:

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

Additionally, we will now also gain access to the new GPT-4 model that released a few weeks ago. The GPT-4 model is limited to 25 message per 3 hours though, so keep that in mind.

The launch of GPT-4

With the launch of GPT-4, OpenAI has greatly increase the following number of properties:

GPT-3.5 (text-davinci-003)
Nr Of parameters 1 trillion 175 billion
Max tokens 8192 4096
Cut of date Sept 2021 June 2021

Note that this is based on the ChatGPT website and the max token limits can be increased even further through the OpenAI API using these models.

The only downside right now is that you require a subscription, the limit of message 25 per third hour and that it's a slower than GPT-3.5.


Another big topic is that OpenAI launching Plugins for ChatGPT. This is plugins that your ChatGPT conversation will have access to. You can now sign up for the waiting list (Link in references)


The unveiling of the GPT-4 model significantly enhances the value of the Plus Subscription, making it more worth the investment. The model feels better in all cases aside from speed and with plugin integration soon available. Im sure it will be part of the Plus Subscription later this year.


Happy coding!
