What’s New in GPT-4o

On May 13, OpenAI launched GPT-4o, the latest evolution of its AI model. Building on the foundation of GPT-4, which already sparked significant excitement in the AI community, GPT-4o aims to make an even bigger impact. The “o” stands for “omni,” reflecting its ability to unify voice, text, and vision in a seamless experience.

This new model promises to enhance productivity, creativity, and overall user experience with features like a new Mac app, faster performance, and real-time voice conversations.

ChatGPT 4o features

Let’s explore everything that makes GPT-4o a groundbreaking update in the world of AI.

Availability and User Limits

The app will be available to everyone, both free and paid users, though the rollout will be gradual. Paid users get a better deal with five times the capacity of free users and higher messaging limits.

Improved Performance and Cost Efficiency

GPT-4o is a game-changer – it’s twice as fast and 50% cheaper than GPT-4 Turbo, which came out in late 2023. GPT-4 Turbo offered more up-to-date responses and could handle larger chunks of text. GPT-4o takes it up a notch with even quicker responses and lower costs, making it a powerful upgrade.

Enhanced Speed and Reduced Latency

Expect responses from GPT-4o to be super quick and with less waiting time, making your interactions smoother and more efficient.

Real-Time Voice Conversations

GPT-4o isn’t just about text anymore. Now, you can have real-time voice conversations with it. You can talk directly to ChatGPT and get verbal responses, making it feel like you’re chatting with a real person.

New Desktop App for Mac

There’s a sleek new desktop app for Mac that promises a minimalist and intuitive interface. You can activate the AI with keyboard shortcuts for instant help in apps like Google Docs. This aims to make ChatGPT not just a tool but a handy assistant, boosting your productivity and creativity.

Plus, the release of a dedicated Mac app suggests a potential partnership between Apple and ChatGPT. Windows users, don’t worry – a version for you is expected by the end of 2024.

Image Creation with Readable Text

Creating images with readable text has always been tricky for AI, but GPT-4o nails it. The text in images can be clear and creatively arranged, like on typewriter pages, movie posters, or with poetic typography.

It can even mimic handwriting so well that some images might look like they were made by humans.
