ChatGPT Plus users reported that a new mode called Turbo is in the alpha phase now. It enhances speed and would be available to all ChatGPT Plus users soon. Some ChatGPT plus subscribers reported it to have activated automatically by default.
There are two modes in ChatGPT for now- default and turbo. ChatGPT Plus users can switch between the modes but regular users can only use the default mode. Some Reddit posts have speculated that the Turbo mode may offer faster results but they would possibly be low-quality responses.
Polar opposite reviews are being received for the turbo feature from people who have used it. Some are saying that it offers an improved version of the default mode, needs minimal computational resources, and is apt for real-time applications. Others have complained that the turbo mode did not offer anything extra or improved in terms of results compared to the default mode.

Indian Government’s take on ChatGPT
In the meantime, the Ministry of Electronics and IT planning of India is contemplating integrating ChatGPT with WhatsApp. They are expecting it to help farmers to understand and know about different government schemes. As per a report by The Indian Express, Bhashini, a team at Meity, is testing ChatGPT powered WhatsApp chatbot.
To ensure ease of use since many farmers may not know how to type on a smartphone, the chatbot is supposed to respond to queries sent through voice notes. The CEO at Microsoft, Satya Nadella, has also hinted at the World Economic Forum that a ChatGPT interface would soon be available to Indian farmers. This would enable them to access a government program via the internet.
