ChatGPT, as a large language model, has significantly impacted the way we live by providing a new way to access information. With its ability to generate human-like responses to a wide range of topics and questions, ChatGPT has revolutionized the way we interact with technology and each other.
Now you can have access to this awesome tool right on your menu bar by downloading and installing these apps.
Developed by Jordi Bruin, MacGPT is an app that allows you to quickly access chatGPT from the menu bar. With just a few clicks, you can open chatGPT and start chatting with the powerful language model.
If you frequently use ChatGPT for tasks such as replying to emails, generating content ideas, coding, and more, then this app is perfect for you. It provides a faster and more efficient means of accessing ChatGPT.
Downloading MacGPT is free of charge, however, there is an option to donate to the developer.
How does MacGPT work?
To begin a conversation with ChatGPT, first log in using OpenAI credentials when you open the app. Then, simply click on the menu bar icon.
Additionally, you can set a keyboard shortcut by clicking on the gear icon, which allows you to activate MacGPT without having to move your mouse. This is useful when multitasking and for a cohesive workflow.
The application is relatively compact and does not eat up system resources. (It’s also coded in Swift, for those interested.)
Are there other alternatives to MacGPT?
Checkout this app on GitHub by Vinclwt that also allows you to use ChatGPT straight from the desktop. It also provides the same function as MacGPT.
Both apps work great despite some minor bugs that can be fixed with updates.
How is ChatGPT changing society?
One significant change brought about by ChatGPT is its impact on the way we search for information. Instead of relying on traditional search engines, which often provide a long list of links that require sifting through, users can ask ChatGPT for information and receive a direct answer. This has made it easier and faster for people to find the information they need.
Another impact of ChatGPT is its ability to communicate with users in a conversational manner. This has transformed the way people interact with technology, making it feel more natural and human-like. ChatGPT’s conversational abilities have also made it easier for people to get help with tasks or receive recommendations, such as in customer service, mental health counselling, and language learning.
Furthermore, ChatGPT has the potential to significantly impact our future in various ways. As the technology behind it continues to improve, we may see ChatGPT being used to perform tasks such as content creation, medical diagnoses, and even driving vehicles. ChatGPT could also play a role in making education more accessible, allowing students to ask questions and receive personalized feedback at any time.
