ChatGPT Alpha Appears As OpenAI Works To Resolve Elevated Errors

Some ChatGPT users are experiencing high-demand errors on the OpenAI systems, and “ChatGPT Alpha” appears in the model selection dropdown.

In addition to the new voice capabilities in ChatGPT available for free and the continued wait for a decision on where Sam Altman will go next, is OpenAI about to launch something big?

This is the screen I received (as a ChatGPT Plus users) when trying to work on a task.

Along with the appearance of “ChatGPT Alpha” and the error, all of my chat history and custom GPTs were gone.

Once the error disappears, the dropdown selection looks like this.

A post on the OpenAI Developer Forum from 18 days ago suggests it could be a version similar to GPT-4 All Tools that is available to free users.

ChatGPT Alpha is a free preview of the Pro version intended for free accounts.
I got stuck in Alpha mode (choosing the option in dropdown menu), subsequently being nudged to upgrade and had to clear cookies to trigger a new login to my Pro account

According to Reddit users, it may be accessible at chat.openai.com/?model=gpt-alpha.

OpenAI is working on elevated errors on the API and ChatGPT.

Other Plus subscribers are also experiencing the issue.

And dealing with lost conversation history.

Is ChatGPT completely lost it? My history is gone, shoved me into ‘Alpha’, and won’t show me whether I’m logged in.

I was literally about to back up all my chats.

Is anyone else seeing this (as an existing Pro user)? pic.twitter.com/zm4D1z4sLK
