Why subscribe to ChatGPT Plus?

The subscription in question is called ChatGPT Plus, and it costs 20 dollars per month. It guarantees its users priority access, even when the free version is full, and allows faster response times.

ChatGPT Plus also offers its subscribers many features, as well as the novelties of the service. Among them, the possibility of using GPT-4, the ChatGPT plug-ins and the search tool “Browse with Bing”, which allows real-time internet access.
