With the popularity of ChatGPT, the number of Chrome extensions out there is constantly increasing. Some are useful, though a lot of them are… not that great. However, we’ve found some of the best extensions out there to minimize searching and maximize your ChatGPT experience on Chrome.
You can’t be a part of everyday internet culture, or at least be a person with internet access, and escape the ChatGPT conversation – whether you want to or not. That, and South Park just covered it, so you know, it’s a pretty big deal right now.
For anyone who needs a quick refresher, ChatGPT is the language-based chatbot built by OpenAI that lets you generate text-based answers to questions about the universe, prompts for poems or brainstorming ideas (and more). You can use ChatGPT for many thingswith the only fundamental limitations being your imagination (and the fact that the answers are text-based, of course).
Whether you’re using ChatGPT for free or paying for the Plus subscription, interacting with the bot is definitely an experience, to say the least. The tone of the conversation is almost disarming when you try to probe whether or not he intends to take on the world or ask him for love life advice.
However, ChatGPT’s user interface is pretty basic compared to its features. While we await further updates and feature extensions, third-party browser extensions are your friend if you want easier, faster access to ChatGPT and add features to get the most out of the AI bot.
ChatGPT for Google
The chrome extension ChatGPT for Google it’s a must if you want to integrate AI more into your everyday life and make the most of this vast fountain of knowledge. The extension will display results from the chatbot along with standard Google search results, so you can get a quick summary of whatever you’re googling while scanning the results for the right page.
Some queries will work better than others with this: you won’t get the latest weather reports or sports reports, but you can get pretty thorough answers to questions about human biology, basic cleaning tips, and historical events. Most of your queries will probably be met with a ChatGPT response, but be prepared for the bot to draw a blank sometimes.
A little box in the corner is integrated along with the usual search results, and you’ll be able to start a conversion with ChatGPT right from the page if you want to chat about it or learn more.
Use voice commands – Promptheus
Fan of Alexa or Siri? Want to take the conversation out into the real world (on your end anyway) and get answers quickly without having to type it all out? Probtheus is for you! This Chrome extension lets you speak directly to ChatGPT using the space bar on your keyboard, so you can skip typing and get answers to all your burning questions using your voice.
Once you’ve installed the extension, open Chrome, head to ChatGPT, and hold down the space bar to start talking. We’ve used it a few times while writing this article, and it speeds up the workflow since you just switch tabs, ask your question, read the answer, and move on.
ChatGPT Export and Share
Currently, if you want to transfer content from ChatGPT to other places, you have to rely on the old faithful cut and paste, but with ChatGPT Export and Share (which works with Chrome, Edge and Firefox) you can optimize the export process in ChatGPT.
It might take a minute to set this up in the browser, but once you’re done, you’ll get new export buttons near the prompt window to make things a lot easier when you’re ready to save your content.
You’ll have options to save your conversations as images or PDF files, and you can also create shareable links if you have something special you want to share quickly.
With Merlin you can have ChatGPT at your fingertips and pull it up without any problems. The extension lets you summarize long blocks of text or reply to an email at any time, essentially giving you a little AI assistant at your fingertips!
After installing the extension, select a block of text, then press Ctrl + M on Windows or Cmd + M on macOS, then tell Merlin what you want ChatGPT to do. Summarize, answer, write, etc. If you have a difficult email to respond to, simply select the text in the email thread, bring up Merlin and ask ChatGPT to write a diplomatic response for you.
Since there’s a simple keyboard shortcut to activate the extension, it’s very easy to integrate Merlin into your daily life very quickly, although keep in mind that you’re limited to around 31 requests per day.
We’ve only listed a few extensions in this article so far, but we hope to add more extensions as they come along and as people interact with ChatGPT. We’re just seeing how ChatGPT fits into our lives as it becomes more mainstream, so there’s no doubt that as the technology ramps up in everyday life and more people find interesting ways to use ChatGPT, we’ll see a lot more useful extensions.
