What is a GPT Store? 5 Things You Must Know in 2024
Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) models like ChatGPT have exploded in popularity recently. As more customized GPTs are created, there needs to be a platform to easily share, find and rank the best GPT models. This is where GPT Store comes in. Here are 5 key things you should know about the GPT Store in 2024.
What is GPT Store?
GPT Store is an online platform for storing customized GPTs that can be created using OpenAI's Builder feature. It's a directory of GPTs, powered by ChatGPT, where you can find the best GPTs and share your own GPT with the world.
The GPT Store allows creators to upload their customized GPT models for others to use. You can create helpful GPTs specialized for daily life, specific tasks, work or home, and make them public on GPT Store. It serves as a marketplace connecting GPT builders and users.
As more customized GPTs are shared, GPT Store aims to become the go-to place to discover tailored AI assistants. You’ll be able to browse GPTs filtered by categories, ratings, use cases and more. The best GPTs could rise to the top charts.
Where is GPT Store?
GPT Store is an online platform accessible from anywhere in the world. It's a cloud-based SaaS platform that users can access through a website or mobile app.
Riding on the infrastructure and reach of ChatGPT, the GPT Store plans to make itself available globally. As long as you have an internet connection, you’ll be able to access GPT Store’s directory of AI assistants.
When was GPT Store released?
GPT Store was initially slated to launch in November 2023. However, the launch was postponed to early 2024. As of January 2024, GPT Store is expected to publicly launch within the next few months.
GPT Store's release was delayed to ensure the platform is robust enough for an influx of users and activity. Before launch, it is being thoroughly tested to guarantee a smooth customer experience.
Once GPT Store launches, expect a directory of GPTs you can browse through. More creators will steadily add customized GPTs over time too. By the end of 2024, there could be thousands of curated GPT models available.
How does GPT Store differ from Google Play Store?
It’s easy to compare GPT Store to app stores we’re already familiar with, like Google Play Store. But they are two very different platforms serving different purposes.
GPT Store is an online platform for storing customized GPT models that can be built using ChatGPT. It's a directory where you can find the best GPTs and share your own tailored AI assistant. GPT Store caters specifically to discovering, distributing and improving AI language models.
On the other hand, Google Play Store is an online platform serving as a digital distribution service for Android apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, books and magazines. It's a one-stop-shop for all digital entertainment needs on Android devices.
While app stores focus on smartphone applications, GPT Store centers around artificial intelligence content and services. As AI progresses, expect platforms dedicated to distributing and optimizing AI tools for consumers and businesses.
How to create GPT Store?
To create customized GPTs for GPT Store, you can leverage OpenAI's GPT Builder feature. It allows you to create a tailored version of ChatGPT that's more helpful in daily life, specific tasks, work or home, and share that creation with others.
You can make one for yourself, solely for internal company use, or make one for everyone. It's as easy to create one as starting a conversation, giving it instructions and additional knowledge, as well as choosing actions it can take (like searching the web, generating images or analyzing data).
Once you’ve created a GPT, you need a ChatGPT Plus account to publish it on GPT Store. After uploading your GPT, others can discover and utilize your customized AI assistant.
As AI progresses, expect platforms like GPT Store that facilitate sharing, optimizing and distributing tailored AI tools. It could fundamentally change how knowledge and intelligence is spread.
