ChatGPT maker OpenAI plans to announce updates on Monday to its flagship chatbot and its most advanced AI model, GPT-4, which “feels like magic,” CEO Sam Altman said on X Friday.

The company said on

Last week, Reuters reported that Microsoft-backed startup MSFT.O planned to announce an AI-powered search product on Monday a day before Google’s I/O developer conference GOOGL.O , citing sources.

But the company decided to delay announcing the research product, according to a Source familiar with the matter. On Friday, CEO Sam Altman posted on magic for me”

OpenAI is under pressure to expand the user base of ChatGPT, its flagship chatbot product that has wowed the world with its ability to produce human-like written content and top-notch software code.

Shortly after its launch in late 2022, ChatGPT was called the fastest app to reach 100 million monthly active users. However, global traffic to ChatGPT’s website has been on a roller coaster ride over the past year and is only returning to its May 2023 peak, according to analytics firm Similarweb.

Giving ChatGPT the ability to access accurate, real-time web information, much like a search engine, is an obvious next step, and one that the current iteration of ChatGPT struggles with, according to industry experts.

It would also put OpenAI in direct competition with Google, which has announced generative AI features for its own search engine, and the well-funded startup Perplexity, which has gained traction by providing an AI-native search interface that displays quotes in results and images as well as text in its answers.

Integrating real-time information has not been an easy task. An earlier attempt to introduce current, real-world information into ChatGPT, called ChatGPT plugins, was abandoned in April, according to a help center post on the OpenAI website.
