chatgpt breaks daily traffic records

It’s been reported that ChatGPT is smashing daily traffic records since it rolled out some shiny new features. And it’s all thanks to OpenAI’s latest and greatest, the GPT-4o model.

According to SimilarWeb, the ChatGPT website hit over 100 million visits just two days after the GPT-4o launch. That’s like everyone in Canada and the UK combined dropping by to say hi! And it’s not stopping there—traffic data from the first 17 days of May show it’s on track to crush its previous peak of 1.8 billion visits back in May 2023, aiming for a whopping 2.3 billion visits this month.

Just going by the numbers, ChatGPT is getting

  • Daily Visits: For the first 17 days of May, ChatGPT averaged 17.8 million daily visits.
  • Monthly Total Projection: If this pace keeps up, the site could hit 2.3 billion visits by the end of the month.
  • Previous Record: The current record stands at 1.8 billion visits in May 2023. Even if traffic slows down a bit, it looks like 2 billion visits are still in the bag.

OpenAI’s CTO, Mira Murati, shared that GPT-4o offers the same smarts as GPT-4 but is faster and enhances abilities across text, vision, and audio. “This is really shifting the paradigm into the future of collaboration, where this interaction becomes much more natural and far, far easier,” said Murati.

Sam Altman, OpenAI’s CEO, also chimed in on the social platform X, announcing that the new model will be available to all ChatGPT users, even those using the free version. So, no one misses out on the fun!

With these new features and the GPT-4o boost, ChatGPT is transforming how we interact with AI. Whether you’re using it for work, play, or just to satisfy your curiosity, this AI chatbot is now faster, smarter, and more accessible than ever.
