OpenAI has just announced the rollout of a brand new, highly requested feature to enrich the ChatGPT experience: shared links. This powerful addition allows users to effortlessly share their ChatGPT conversations with others.
Gone are the days of copying and pasting text; now you can simply send a link that enables recipients to view the chat or copy it to their own ChatGPT conversations.
As a language model developed by OpenAI, ChatGPT is already lauded for its ability to generate impressive natural language content. Now, with the introduction of shared links, the user experience has become even more engaging and interactive.
Currently, the shared links feature is available for testing by a select group of alpha users, and OpenAI plans to expand this functionality to all users—including those on the free tier—in the coming weeks.
Collaboration is undeniably one of the most powerful aspects of communication. With the shared links feature, ChatGPT users can now effortlessly collaborate on drafts, brainstorm ideas, troubleshoot issues, and engage in recreational activities like interactive storytelling.
Collaboration capabilities include:
- Shared brainstorming
- Collaborative document editing
- Q&A sessions
- Engaging simulations
- Interactive storytelling
Using the shared links feature is a simple and intuitive 3-step process:
- Click on the thread you’d like to share
- Select the “Share” button
- Click on “Copy Link”
Once the link is copied, you can send it to anyone interested in viewing the conversation. Recipients have the option to either view the conversation or copy it to their own chats to continue the thread.
Future improvements and features
While this initial release is focused on sharing links, OpenAI has expressed intent to continue refining and expanding the ChatGPT experience. Users can expect ongoing improvements to address user feedback, making the already impressive AI system even more useful, flexible, and user-friendly.
As the feature rolls out to more users, OpenAI anticipates an even more interactive and engaging experience for everyone using ChatGPT. The shared links addition marks another significant step in the evolution of the cutting-edge AI model, as it continues to transform the way we create, learn, and collaborate.
