OpenAI has recently unveiled some exciting upgrades to ChatGPT during their Spring Update. Among these, the new GPT-4o model stands out. Here are five cool features of ChatGPT-4o that you might have missed.


1. Faster and Smarter Reasoning

The GPT-4o model is a big update to OpenAI’s AI technology. It’s not ChatGPT-5, but it’s a big leap forward. GPT-4o can reason across voice, text, and vision, making it much faster and more efficient than before. This means it can understand and respond to your questions more quickly and accurately.

2. Free for Everyone

One of the best parts about GPT-4o is that it’s available for free. You don’t need to pay the $20 a month premium Plus service to use it. Free users can now access advanced tools like custom chatbots, the ChatGPT store, data analysis tools, image analysis, and a memory feature that remembers past conversations.


“We are beginning 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. Plus users will have a message limit that is up to 5x greater than free users, and Team and Enterprise users will have even higher limits,” open AI said on its website.

“There will be a limit on the number of messages that free users can send with GPT-4o depending on usage and demand. When the limit is reached, ChatGPT will automatically switch to GPT-3.5 so users can continue their conversations,” it added.

3. Real-Time Conversational Speech

GPT-4o introduces a new voice assistant that can hold real-time conversations. This assistant can handle interruptions, change its tone, and react to user emotions. During the live demo, it even created a bedtime story, changed its voice to be more dramatic, and sang parts of the story. This makes interactions more natural and engaging.

4. Live Translation Tool

The new live translation tool in GPT-4o is impressive. It can translate languages in real-time. In a demo, OpenAI’s CTO Mira Murati spoke in Italian, and the assistant translated it to English and vice versa. This feature will be very helpful for travelers and anyone needing quick translations.

5. Vision Capabilities

ChatGPT-4o can now “see” using your phone’s camera, similar to Google Lens. It can help solve math problems by viewing equations, analyze code, and detect changes in documents. This feature can also be used on desktops, making it a versatile tool for learning and problem-solving.

These updates make ChatGPT-4o a powerful and user-friendly AI assistant. While not all features are available immediately, they are being rolled out over the next few weeks. Keep an eye out for these cool features and see how they can make your life easier!
