Is ChatGPT Down for You? OpenAI’s Chatbot Hit by Major Outage – Here’s What We Know

ChatGPT Down

ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot from OpenAI, has become an indispensable productivity tool for many users. However, it experienced a major outage today, leaving many users unable to access it as the US began its workday.

OpenAI reported a significant outage that started around 2:30 a.m. ET. The issue was resolved just over five hours later after the company implemented a fix. Interestingly, the outage seemed to affect mostly logged-in users, and it was widespread, impacting the web version and the mobile and Mac apps.

However, the respite was short-lived. OpenAI’s status page reported another major outage for ChatGPT at 10:33 a.m. ET, with no updates provided since then.

While the outage is undoubtedly inconvenient for many, it also presents an opportunity to explore alternative AI chatbots. Here are a few options you might consider:

  • Microsoft Copilot: Often considered the best alternative to ChatGPT, Copilot is accessible online and can tap into internet sources. It also uses GPT-4, OpenAI’s LLM, which is currently operational.
  • Gemini: If you haven’t tried Google’s chatbot yet, now might be a good time. This free AI chatbot has access to Google and provides quick responses.
  • This AI bot is powered by one of the most advanced LLMs and is available for free with web access.

While we wait for updates on the ChatGPT outage, these alternatives can help ensure that your productivity doesn’t take a hit. Stay tuned for more updates on the situation.
