OpenAI will temporarily stop accepting new subscribers to ChatGPT Plus. The company says current subscribers are using too much capacity. It is not known when the company will resume offering subscriptions.
In a tweet “We are pausing new signups for ChatGPT at this time,” said Sam Altman, CEO and co-founder of OpenAI. “The pressure on our capacity since the DevDay event has been extremely significant.” New users can still sign up to be notified when OpenAI accepts new subscribers.
The company introduced a subscription to chatbot ChatGPT at the beginning of this year. For approximately €23 per month in Benelux, customers get, among other things, early access to new functionality and faster response times. OpenAI also promises that subscription customers will still have access to the chatbot during busy times, which doesn’t seem to always be possible due to the recent crowds.
We’re pausing new ChatGPT Plus signups for a while 🙁
The increase in usage after devday has exceeded our capacity and we want to make sure everyone has a great experience.
You can still sign up to be notified within the app when subscriptions reopen.
