OpenAI launches GPT Store for custom AI assistants


OpenAI has recently launched the GPT Store, an online platform offering users access to personalized AI assistants. Following the introduction of custom ‘GPTs’ two months ago, users have already developed over three million unique assistants, which can now be shared in the dedicated store.

The store showcases assistants tailored to various subjects such as art, research, programming, education, lifestyle, and more. OpenAI is highlighting particularly useful assistants, including: 

  • Personal trail recommendations from AllTrails
  • Searching academic papers with Consensus
  • Expanding coding skills via Khan Academy’s Code Tutor
  • Designing presentations with Canva
  • Book recommendations from Books
  • Maths help from CK-12 Flexi

OpenAI emphasizes that creating an assistant is straightforward and does not require coding knowledge. To share an assistant, builders need to make it accessible to ‘Anyone with the link’ and verify their profile.

To ensure compliance, OpenAI has implemented new usage policies and brand guidelines. The review process for listing assistants involves a combination of human and automated checks, with users able to flag concerning content.

Starting from Q1 2024, OpenAI will compensate qualifying US-based builders for user engagement with their assistants. Specific details about payment criteria will be provided closer to the launch date.

For enterprise users, OpenAI has introduced ChatGPT Team plans catering to teams of all sizes. These plans offer access to a private store section containing company-specific assistants securely published to their workspace.

ChatGPT Enterprise customers will soon have admin controls for internal sharing and the ability to select external assistants for employee use. It’s important to note that, similar to ChatGPT Team and Enterprise content, conversations are not utilized to enhance OpenAI’s models.

With the widespread adoption of ChatGPT, OpenAI aims to leverage its new stores and revenue opportunities, encouraging builders to create assistants that deliver value to both consumers and enterprises.
