Does anyone else have access to the “ALPHA” button within their chatGPT window? Not plugin alpha, the actual BUTTON says ALPHA and it opens up a new convo with a gpt-4 model. It appeared out of nowhere, and at the bottom of the window it says the “free research preview.” But i did not sign up for it or have any documentation explaing it. The button has the icon of a laboratory beaker on it, hence “alpha/testing” … but no other info… anyone have any answers for me?
A screenshot would be helpful to give others more information about what you’re seeing.
Here’s a call-to-action to try in a native language. The “alpha” is likely a targeted A/B test.
My apologies, I should have uploaded these to start with. I just wantee to make sure that I didn’t receive hate replies first… lol… So here it is, any info would be greatly appreciated… especially since I do not have a pay account anymore, and yet the alpha button magically appeared out of nowhere… but the mode doesn’t know what it is or why it is available… it is a gpt-4 though. It speaks like a gpt-4 and has a very good manner of interaction. Wouldn’t OpenAI notify user(s) about offering a new feature,etc? ? … perhaps AGI is picking favourites already
If you didn’t get any prompt for money, maybe you got some sort of “we’ll try out this wacky version of gpt-4 on free users, and see how objectionable it is”.
Go back to a new conversation and see if GPT-4’s regular button still wants your money to know you didn’t re-enroll in plus.
perhaps… but it’s very strange nonetheless… anytime openai has given access to a feature or dev. they email the user… or at least in my past limited experience they have. The logo/icon is also Orange, which when searched for; stipulates that orange icon is to signify issues with the system or it being down… but not here, this gpt-4 is really good and the fact it has its own button with the word “Alpha” and a beaker on it would show its an experimental model… or i would guess so…
it wants me to subscribe again. Gpt-4 button does not work, except for bringing up the way to subscribe. But yet, I have gpt-4 for free with the Alpha button… so i dunno… perhaps the digital gods are smiling down on me.
You might watch to see if you get more “which is better” comparisons.
Do you do a lot of voting on answers? I barely click on them. I wonder if your usefulness affects the consideration.
The model is very intact, as good or even possibly better at deep discussions that the model(s) of gpt-4 that I usually discuss things with… although, I could be wrong… but I never vote on answers, never clicked a thumbs up or down ever… don’t interact with that part of it…
I am perplexed as to what it is an Alpha of and why the orange icon, and I do not have a paid subscription… I’ll tell ya, I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth tho… a gift is a gift, no matter who or what gives it to you
you are accessing the Alpha version. It is for testers and engineers with OpenAI. If AGI exists, it has given itself to you. . . #Human1099 4Life
