US-based entrepreneur and the co-founder of Cue (acquired by Apple), Daniel Gross, has integrated GPT-3.5 (that is used to build ChatGPT) into an AI-enabled assistant on WhatsApp. 

By embedding GPT-3.5 into WhatsApp, Gross was able to chat with the bot as if it were a friend on his contact list. He calls it WhatsApp-GPT. 

The code is available on GitHub

According to Gross, he ran WhatsApp from a phone using the golang library then simultaneously ran ‘ChatGPT’ on a browser. He also points out that it might not work on the first go. 

However, it must be noted that the official API for ChatGPT is not available yet.

Tech influencer Varun Mayya also announced something similar on Twitter. He said, “Announcing God In a Box, a direct implementation of GPT-3.5 into WhatsApp. Unlike other implementations, ours uses the brand new model and API, and doesn’t require credentials. We’re launching tonight, but you’ll need a beta key.”

However, you can join the waitlist even if you do not have the beta key.

Inspired by Gross, Twitter user Altryne has even managed to embed ChatGPT in Telegram.

Since its launch, ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm and already clocked a million users in a few days. What makes ChatGPT impressive is that besides answering general queries, it can explain codes and scientific concepts, write basic academic essays, and even scripts for rom-coms. 

The model is released in its Beta version and is free to use. However, Sam Altman, founder of OpenAI, said they would consider monetising the model with an average cost of single-digit cents per chat. He also added that monetisation particularly becomes important as “the compute costs are eye-watering”.
