Spotify lays off 6% of its workforce, affecting 600 employees

OpenAI announced earlier this month that it was looking into monetising its AI chatbot, ChatGPT and that users could sign up for early access to “ChatGPT Professional.” 

While some users claim to have been granted access to a $42 per month pro tier, OpenAI has not confirmed that this is an official test.

But what do you get for $42 per month? According to screenshots shared by early access users, you get faster response time, reliability (because ChatGPT is frequently unavailable), and “priority access to new features” (whatever they turn out to be).

Zahid Khawaja, an AI developer, shared a video of the pro tier working on both desktop and mobile — and a screenshot of his payment to OpenAI as proof.
