The OpenAI company has added support for third-party plugins in ChatGPT, which will help the chatbot search for relevant data on the Internet.
We are adding support for plugins to ChatGPT – extensions which integrate it with third-party services or allow it to access up-to-date information. We’re starting small to study real-world use, impact, and safety and alignment challenges: https://t.co/A9epaBBBzx pic.twitter.com/KS5jcFoNhf

First, the plugins will be available for a small number of core users, let’s move on to plugin retailers, and step by step expand for larger audiences.
In OpenAI, they said that plugins would not only allow the chatbot to look at the current web sites, but also interact with specific sites. Potentially, you can convert ChatGPT to a wide interface for various services.
On one of the applications, the OpenAI team demonstrated how the chatbot knows the recipe and asks for the necessary products for Instacart help. ChatGPT automatically generates a list of ingredients and redirects the caller to the site to confirm the request.
We’ve added initial support for ChatGPT plugins — a protocol for developers to build tools for ChatGPT, with safety as a core design principle. Deploying iteratively (starting with a small number of users & developers) to learn from contact with reality: https://t.co/ySek2oevod pic.twitter.com/S61MTpddOV

The company has already integrated 11 plugins with ChatGPT. Among them are Expedia, Instacart, OpenTable, Wolfram and Zapier.
Of course, the retailers have added two plug-ins for free distribution: a code interpreter and a web browser. The rest can search for information on the Internet and send a message to the dzherel that they win.
