3 Min Read

Sam Altman-run OpenAI on Monday released a new flagship generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) model called ‘GPT-4o’.

The company has started to roll out GPT-4o to ChatGPT Plus and Team users, with availability for Enterprise users coming soon.

“We are also starting to roll out to ChatGPT Free with usage limits today,” OpenAI said in a blogpost.

According to OpenAI, the new flagship model provides GPT-4-level intelligence but is much faster and improves on its capabilities across text, voice, and vision.

As explained in an example by the company, you can now take a picture of a menu in a different language and talk to GPT-4o to translate it, learn about the food’s history and significance, and get recommendations. In the future, improvements will allow for more natural, real-time voice conversation and the ability to converse with ChatGPT via real-time video.

“For example, you could show ChatGPT a live sports game and ask it to explain the rules to you. We plan to launch a new Voice Mode with these new capabilities in an alpha in the coming weeks, with early access for Plus users as we roll out more broadly,” the company said.

To make advanced AI more accessible and useful globally, GPT-4o’s language capabilities are improved across quality and speed. ChatGPT also now supports more than 50 languages across sign-up and login, user settings, and more, according to the company.

In addition, OpenAI released a desktop version of ChatGPT and a refreshed UI.

“For both free and paid users, we’re also launching a new ChatGPT desktop app for macOS that is designed to integrate seamlessly into anything you’re doing on your computer,” OpenAI said.

With a simple keyboard shortcut (Option + Space), users can instantly ask ChatGPT a question. They can also take and discuss screenshots directly in the app.

The ChatGPT-maker has started to roll out the macOS app to Plus users, and will make it more broadly available in the coming weeks. It also plans to launch a Windows version later this year.
