Can I access browser tool by API?

Dear OpenAI Developer Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out with a question about the functionality of the OpenAI API, specifically regarding the browser tool.

I have been working with the GPT series of models and have found the browser tool to be an immensely useful feature. It has proved very helpful in looking up recent information and enhancing the responses generated by the model.

I am writing to ask if it is possible to access the browser tool directly via the OpenAI API. I am particularly interested in utilizing this feature to ensure that my applications can provide the most up-to-date information to the users.

If direct access to the browser tool is possible, I would appreciate it if you could guide me to the relevant documentation or provide an example of how it can be done. If it is not currently possible, I would like to suggest considering this as a feature in future updates of the API.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance. I look forward to hearing from you and continuing to explore the possibilities of the OpenAI API.

Best regards,



Plugins and browsing models are not yet available in API, and may not be ever.

Thank you for the update. I hope they will recognize the significant value of this.
