Unlocking the Full Potential of ChatGPT: A Guide for ZDNET Users

OpenAI’s ChatGPT made waves when it debuted a year ago and has since been adopted by tech giants and quickly amassed 100 million users, outpacing the growth of TikTok. It’s so powerful that some speculate it could replace programmers and writers. To use ChatGPT, sign up with an email or Microsoft/Google account at chat.openai.com. After signing in, you can interact with the AI tool, which offers a “New chat” button, chat history, and account settings. ChatGPT can answer a wide range of prompts, making it useful for tasks like coding, writing, and translation. It is recommended to create a compelling prompt when engaging with ChatGPT. ZDNET offers guides on using ChatGPT for various purposes, such as school projects and summarizing documents. ChatGPT improves its responses when prompted to generate text by using consecutive prompts. One can also access ChatGPT through its dedicated mobile apps on iOS and Android or through the mobile browser. Additionally, users who prefer not to log in can instead use Bing Chat, a free AI chatbot built with a more advanced model.
