Key notes

  • OpenAI has just announced that you can use ChatGPT without signing in.
  • Rolling out gradually starting today, you can still access the free, GPT-3.5-powered version of the chatbot.
  • Google Gemini, on the other hand, does not have this feature.

OpenAI has just announced a big, big change that the AI-powered chatbot has now seen. The Microsoft-backed company has said that you can use ChatGPT without signing in starting today. And no, it’s not an April Fools joke. 

This feature, however, is exclusive to the free ChatGPT with GPT-3.5. It is now rolling out gradually for the time being, so even if you’re rushing to open your browser’s Incognito mode to try it, there’s still a chance that you still need to sign in. 

“More than 100 million people across 185 countries use ChatGPT weekly to learn something new, find creative inspiration, and get answers to their questions,” OpenAI brags.

It’s definitely a piece of good news for folks who were first skeptical about AI (and this chatbot) but want to try to see what it looks or feels like. The ChatGPT mobile app has seen hundreds of millions of downloads. Plus, it now includes the voice conversation feature, which used to be exclusive to premium users.

OpenAI might still use what you tell the chatbot to improve it, but you can turn that off if you want. The company also added more protections to prevent the chatbot from generating certain types of content, like prompts that violate its ethics rules.

And from this, it seems like ChatGPT is a step ahead of Google once again. Google Gemini, previously Bard, doesn’t offer this feature. With Gemini, you still need to log in to use it, and while the free version can search the web, the free version of ChatGPT doesn’t, so that’s the difference.

Bard has also arrived way later than ChatGPT (or even Microsoft’s Copilot, for that matter), and it may take folks over at Google more time if they want to make the Gemini-powered chatbot accessible for all without login.
