OpenAI Pauses New Subscriptions To ChatGPT Plus

Due to increased usage after the DevDay developers conference, OpenAI’s ChatGPT Plus signups are temporarily paused due to capacity challenges. Existing subscribers will continue to experience high-quality service, including features like GPT-4 Turbo and custom GPTs. ChatGPT Plus demand is so high that eBay listings now offer premium subscription months. Despite Google indexing over 300 public GPTs, a recent surge in demand led to outages, prompting the decision to halt new signups. Developers using the API may face fewer issues, but non-subscribers could experience frustration with limited access during this period.
