With the popularity of ChatGPT, the number of available Chrome extensions continues to grow. Some are helpful, but many are… not so great. However, we found some of the best extensions available that minimize search and maximize the ChatGPT experience in Chrome.
You can’t be a part of everyday internet culture, or at least be a person with internet access and escape the ChatGPT discourse – whether you like it or not. That, and South Park just mentioned it, so you know, it’s pretty serious now.
For anyone who needs a quick refresher, ChatGPT is a language-based chatbot created by OpenAI that allows you to generate text-based answers to questions about the universe, prompts for poems, or brainstorming ideas (and much more). You can use ChatGPT for many thingsand the only basic limits are your imagination (and the fact that the answers are text, of course).
If you use ChatGPT for free or pay for a Plus membership, interacting with the bot is definitely an experience, to say the least. The conversational tone is almost disarming as you try to investigate whether he plans to take over the world or ask him for advice on your love life.
However, ChatGPT’s user interface is quite simple compared to its capabilities. While we await further updates and feature enhancements, third-party browser extensions are your friends if you want easier, faster access to ChatGPT and add features to get the most out of your AI bot.
ChatGPT for Google
Chrome extension ChatGPT for Google is a must if you want to integrate AI more into your daily life and get the most out of this vast fountain of knowledge. The extension will display chatbot results alongside standard Google search results, so you can quickly see what you’re googling while scanning the results for the right page.
Some queries will perform better than others: you won’t get the latest weather or sports reports, but you can get pretty in-depth answers to questions about human biology, basic housekeeping hacks, and historical facts. Most of your queries will probably be accompanied by a ChatGPT response, but be prepared for the bot not happening sometimes.
The small box in the corner is integrated with the regular search results and you will be able to start a conversion with ChatGPT directly from the page if you want to talk about it or learn more.
Use voice commands – Promptheus
Alexa or Siri fan? Want to take the conversation into the real world (on your side anyway) and get answers quickly without having to type everything? Prompteus is for you! This Chrome extension allows you to chat directly with ChatGPT using the spacebar on your keyboard, so you can skip typing and get answers to all your burning questions with your voice.
After installing the extension, open Chrome, go to ChatGPT and hold the space bar to start speaking. We used it a few times while writing this article and it speeds up the workflow as you just swap cards, ask a question, read an answer and move on.
Export and share ChatGPT
Currently, if you want to move content from ChatGPT to other places, you have to rely on old faithful cut and paste, but with Export and share ChatGPT (which works with Chrome, Edge and Firefox) you can streamline the export process in ChatGPT.
It may take a while to set up in your browser, but when you’re ready, you’ll see new export buttons near the prompt box that will make saving your content much easier.
You’ll have options to save conversations as images or PDFs, and you can also create sharing links if you have something special you want to share quickly.
WITH Merlin you can have ChatGPT on your fingertips and pull it up without problems. The extension allows you to summarize large blocks of text or reply to emails whenever you want, essentially giving you a little AI assistant at your beck and call!
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 to do in ChatGPT. Summarize, Reply, Write, etc. If you have a tricky email you need to reply to, just highlight the text in the email thread, invoke Merlin, and ask ChatGPT to write a diplomatic reply for you.
Since there’s a simple keyboard shortcut to activate the extension, it’s really easy to incorporate Merlin into your daily grind very quickly, though keep in mind that you’re limited to around 31 requests per day.
We have only listed a few extensions in this article so far, but we hope to add more extensions as they become available and as people start getting used to ChatGPT. We are only just seeing ChatGPT fit into our lives as it becomes more and more commonplace, so there is no doubt that as technology blends into everyday life and more people find interesting ways to use ChatGPT, we will see many more useful extensions .
