On Tuesday, OpenAI announced a new feature in ChatGPT that allows users to pull custom personalities called "GPTs" into any ChatGPT conversation with the @ symbol. It allows a level of quasi-teamwork within ChatGPT among expert roles that was previously impractical, making collaborating with a team of AI agents within OpenAI's platform one step closer to reality.
"You can now bring GPTs into any conversation in ChatGPT - simply type @ and select the GPT," wrote OpenAI on the social media network X. "This allows you to add relevant GPTs with the full context of the conversation."
OpenAI introduced GPTs in November as a way to create custom personalities or roles for ChatGPT to play. For example, users can build their own GPTs to focus on certain topics or certain skills. Paid ChatGPT subscribers can also freely download a host of GPTs developed by other ChatGPT users through the GPT Store.
