Chat Completion vs Assistants

Hello everyone,
I am just wondering about the potential pros and cons of using Chat Completions vs an Assistant. The biggest advantage I can see of using the Assistants is the ease of adding function calls. But I have a working project that calls functions with Chat Completions also. Just wondering if anyone has a view as to why one is better, or when it’s best to use one versus the other please?


good question. I think if you’re not using the thread function then chat completion is simpler. The Assistant api seems to be slightly more complicated.
