OpenAI’s app store for GPTs will launch next week


OpenAI is set to launch its GPT Store, a marketplace for applications built on top of its generative AI models like GPT-4, in the coming week. This platform will allow developers to publish and potentially monetize custom apps, known as GPTs, that they have created using OpenAI’s technology. The GPT Store was initially announced during OpenAI’s first annual developer conference, DevDay, and was supposed to launch in late 2023 but faced delays due to internal leadership changes and other issues[1][3][4][7][8].

Developers interested in participating will need to comply with OpenAI’s updated usage policies, verify their user profile, and publish their GPTs as “public” to be featured in the store[1][5]. The GPTs can range from simple to complex and do not require coding experience to create. They can be trained for specific tasks, such as answering culinary questions or providing math instruction[1][4].

The GPT Store is expected to open up a range of opportunities for creators beyond the tech industry and could become a significant platform for AI applications, similar to the Apple App Store. However, OpenAI has not yet disclosed details on how the monetization process will work for developers[3][4].

The launch of the GPT Store marks a strategic move by OpenAI from being an AI model provider to becoming a platform, allowing third-party developers to build and share their AI-powered tools with a broader audience[1][3]. This initiative is part of OpenAI’s broader effort to enable customization of its AI offerings, including the introduction of custom instructions for ChatGPT in June[7].
