ChatGPT is down! Here’s what we know about the major outage
ChatGPT is down. The popular OpenAI chatbot tool has experienced a significant outage, leaving both subscribers and free users unable to access the platform. The issue, which began earlier this morning, has impacted users worldwide, according to OpenAI’s status monitoring website and Down Detector, a service that tracks website outages.
The outage coincides with recent reports of difficulties generating images using ChatGPT’s integration with DALL-E 3, raising questions about the potential interconnectedness of these disruptions. However, OpenAI maintains that its systems are fully operational, suggesting that the issues may be isolated to the ChatGPT platform itself. The company currently has over 100 million users.
Earlier this week, OpenAI unveiled a suite of enhancements for ChatGPT at its inaugural developer conference. These updates included the seamless integration of DALL-E 3 for image generation, the expansion of ChatGPT’s knowledge cutoff date to April 2023, and the rollout of GPT-4 Turbo, a performance-boosting technology, to ChatGPT Plus users.
OpenAI is currently investigating the root cause of the outage and working towards a swift resolution. As of the time of writing 10:03 AM EST, OpenAI has not provided an estimated timeline for restoration of access.
