How canceling ChatGPT Plus subscription works

There are a few things you should know about how ChatGPT Plus subscription cancellation works. According to OpenAI's official help guide:

  • The cancellation of the service isn't immediate. Your access to ChatGPT Plus ends "the day after the next billing date." You'll be able to still use the premium features of ChatGPT Plus up until that date.
  • OpenAI says subscription fees "are nonrefundable."
  • When you choose to cancel your subscription is up to you, but if you don't want to get billed for the next month of service, you should make sure to cancel it a minimum of 24 hours prior to the next payment date.

Also, it's worth noting that some users (like this one on Reddit and these users on this OpenAI API Community Forum page) have reported having difficulties with canceling and ultimately being unable to cancel their ChatGPT Plus subscriptions.

How to cancel ChatGPT Plus

With all that in mind, if you need to cancel your ChatGPT Plus subscription, it's pretty simple. Just follow the steps below to quickly cancel your account.

Step 1: Log into ChatGPT Plus and then select the My account option from the sidebar located on the left side of your screen.

Step 2: Then select Manage my subscription.

Step 3: You should now see a Stripe checkout site. On this page, choose the Cancel plan option. After confirming, your ChatGPT Plus should now be canceled.

Nvidia is bringing ChatGPT-style AI to video games, and I’m already worried
Nvidia CEO delivering a keynote at Computex.

Nvidia is bringing generative AI to video games. Announced during its Computex 2023 keynote, Nvidia ACE is a new platform that allows developers to use generative AI to power conversations with characters in games.

Think ChatGPT, but instead of a general-purpose chatbot, you get a chatbot with a specific backstory and lore. Nvidia is stressing that flexibility is one of the most important aspects of ACE, as it will allow characters to have a fleshed-out backstory that informs their responses and keeps them from getting too off-topic. The company's recently announced NeMo Guardrails play a role in this, directing the conversation away from topics the developer doesn't intend.

Generative AI in Google Search.

Ever since Microsoft started integrating ChatGPT into Bing search, alarm bells have been ringing at Google. Now, though, the tech giant has started rolling out its own generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool for users as part of its bid to retain its search crown.

In a blog post, the company explains that the new feature (called Search Generative Experience, or SGE) is part of Google’s Search Labs, which lets you test out experimental ideas in Google search and provide feedback to the company. Google says its generative AI will “help you take some of the work out of searching, so you can understand a topic faster, uncover new viewpoints and insights and get things done more easily.”
