OpenAI is opening its app store

Together with

The Future. ChatGPT is finally opening its own version of Apple’s App Store after some delay. Considering how much revenue (and regulatory headaches) the marketplace provides, ChatGPT’s chatbot store could turn the AI firm into a booming, sustainable business… as long as copyright law doesn’t make it obsolete.

OpenAI is monetizing the creation of AI agents — chatbots that don’t require human intervention.

  • The preeminent AI company is opening up its GPT Store this week after its originally slated launch in November (some Sam Altman drama got in the way).
  • The store will allow ChatGPT and enterprise subscribers to sell and share customized chatbots created using ChatGPT.
  • Payment plans are still as hazy as ChatGPT’s training data, but the firm said that it’s figuring out a way to pay developers based on how much their chatbots are used.

Some of the custom chatbots already available, per The Verge, on ChatGPT Plus’ explore tab include one explaining Gen Z memes and another that’s meant to help people through work negotiations (no one likes haggling for a raise).

With AI agents’ potential to become moneymakers, the internet may be transitioning out of its app era.
