OpenAI users can now create custom versions of ChatGPT that can be tailored for specific purposes and shared publicly, the company has announced.

The creations, or “GPTs”, require no coding and can be made for use in daily life, at specific tasks, at work, or at home. In addition, as the one-year anniversary of the launch of ChatGPT approaches, the company said it will roll out the GPT Store, later this month, which will highlight the top GPTs, created by its users.

Once in the store, GPTs will become searchable and will be ranked on leaderboards. They will be spotlighted across a range of categories such as productivity, education, and “just for fun,” the firm said. In the coming months, GPT creators will also be able to earn money based on how many people are using their GPT.

Among its applications, such GPTs could be made for personal use or for a company’s internal use. They could help a user learn the rules to any board game, teach a subject or design stickers, the company said.

OpenAI previously launched Custom Instructions in July that lets users set some preferences. The latest feature goes one step further and aims to meet demand among users for further control.

Writing in a blog post, the company said: “GPTs will continue to get more useful and smarter, and you’ll eventually be able to let them take on real tasks in the real world. In the field of AI, these systems are often discussed as “agents”.

“We think it’s important to move incrementally towards this future, as it will require careful technical and safety work—and time for society to adapt. We have been thinking deeply about the societal implications and will have more analysis to share soon.”
