I recently acquired access to plugin development and one question is looking for me as I research the capabilities. Can plugins be enabled for use with the OpenAI api. I know you can enable and use them in the chatGPT UI but I can’t seem to find any information about using them through the API.
On the beggining of May Patrick said that it’s not possible and plugins are only available from UI. I don’t think anything changed in that regard.
Based on a recent discussion on the OpenAI Developer Forum, as of May 19, 2023, plugins are not currently supported in the OpenAI API. While there’s no specific roadmap for this feature, the developers have mentioned that they are actively working on building the Plugin ecosystem and hope to include plugins in the API in the future.
