Hey there, tech lovers! The most recent updates have taken this AI to unprecedented heights. AI is changing on a daily basis, so this information may be old by the time you are reading this.
There are two recent changes to ChatGPT that can affect your output. Both are available as part of the paid PLUS program.
1.Internet access. ChatGPT can now access the internet for real time information.
2.Plugins. ChatGPT has opened up development to third party developers allowing it to perform a variety of additional tasks such as creating diagrams, retrieving images, and booking flights.
Let’s dive in and explore these new features, and I’ll show you how to get the most out of them.
Surfing the Web with ChatGPT
One of the most exciting updates to ChatGPT is its newfound ability to surf the web. Thanks to the
web_pilot tool, ChatGPT can now interact with, extract specific information from, or even perform actions on a given URL. This means that ChatGPT can now pull in real-time data from the web, making it an even more versatile and useful tool.
To get this feature up and running, all you need to do is provide a URL to ChatGPT. The AI will then use the
web_pilot.visitWebPage function to visit and retrieve content from the specified webpage. If you have specific requests, such as rewriting or translating the content, you can include these in your request, and ChatGPT will take care of the rest.
Here’s a handy diagram to help you visualize how this process works:
Expanding Capabilities with Plugins
Another significant enhancement to ChatGPT is the ability to use plugins. These tools allow ChatGPT to perform a variety of additional tasks, such as creating visual diagrams or summarizing complex information. One such plugin is the
show_me tool, which can generate visualizations based on user prompts such as the diagram above.
Here is how to enable and use these features.
To enable these features, visit chat.openai.com and in the lower left of the screen click on the 3 ellipses next to your name and choose “Settings.” Go to “Beta features” and toggle on both “Web browsing” and “Plugins.”
From the main interface, click on the dropdown arrow and then click on “Plugin Store.”
Browse through the various plugins that you might wish to use. New developers and new plugins are being created on a regular basis, so you may want to check back often. The default tab shows you only the new plugins, so be sure to visit “All Plugins” to see everything.
I decided to give this a test using my own website with information that I only published a few days ago. So, I prompted ChatGPT with “tell me about webstoresltd.com and the course called the AI Money Machine” Here was the response:
The “AI Money Machine” is a course offered by WebStores Ltd. The course is designed to help individuals create an entire ecommerce business using artificial intelligence. It promises to guide users in creating AI-generated products and selling them online in a matter of days. It’s an experiential learning program that doesn’t require previous experience from the participants1.
Wow – that’s pretty good! Even the footnote source linked to the right page. Now it does still “hallucinate” in that it provided some additional information to a review that was not relevant to this course. So obviously we still need human experts to guide it. But the fact that it can now pull current information is pretty significant.
I then prompted it to summarize this course for me and provide a call to action. Here is what it said:
Are you ready to harness the power of AI and transform your ecommerce business? The AI Money Machine Course offered by WebStores Ltd is your golden ticket. This hands-on, practical course will immerse you in the world of AI, empowering you to create and sell AI-generated products online.

Personally, I’m impressed – I did not write that, nor did anyone else. The course is very real, it starts next week on June 1st and you can register for it at webstoresltd.com/aiworkshop
The Human Element
What sets ChatGPT apart from other AI models is its uncanny ability to mimic human conversation. This is achieved through a combination of advanced machine learning techniques and a vast dataset of human-written text. The result is an AI that not only understands and responds to user prompts but does so in a way that feels natural and human-like.
Output in the past has appeared to be very robotic, but ChatGPT is getting better and better and making the put sound more like a human wrote it. I took the first draft of this article (which was created by ChatGPT) and fed it this prompt: Rewrite this as if a real human being wrote it so that it will pass any ai-detection programs.
The result is the article you are reading now (with my own comments added in of course). I then ran it through GPTzero to check to see it it was written by AI. The result “Your text is likely to be written entirely by a human.”
I then fed the entire article into ContentAtScale, another ai-detection site and this was the result:
Of course I kept the responses above exactly as ChatGPT gave them to me regarding the AI Money Machine course, but even this tool couldn’t tell that most of the article was written by a bot.
The new browsing and plugin features, combined with a more human-like output makes this tool a feature that every online business owner needs to become familiar with. Get started by registering for the AI Money Machine course.
