ChatGPT vs. Gemini: Which AI Chatbot Subscription Is Right for us?
ChatGPT vs. Gemini: Subscription Battel Begin

Generalizing from AI chatbot subscriptions, such as Gemini Advanced from Google and OpenAI’s ChatGPT Plus, the first is that the best part about these subscriptions is their generality. The same tool could be used to solve a myriad of different problems, from app development to planning a kid’s birthday party. It’s much harder to say how a little extra horsepower improves the user experience than it is to point to some arcane benchmark and boast about cost/performance. Nevertheless, here we are, halfway through 2021, and Google and OpenAI have rolled out a $20/month subscription to AI chatbots; today, it will be Microsoft announcing Copilot Pro.

The second lesson from these chatbots is that we should teach our children to be nice to their AI charity case-overlord-thingy, just in case.

Firstly, most people will be covered by the free options– the ChatGPT and Gemini levels are more than powerful enough unless you need more specialized tools. Most importantly, skepticism is a must. Chatbots (ChatGPT included) have a bad habit of passing along bogus info, so you should only give it your cautious trust.

Each of the subscriptions has a unique feature. Google bundles in the Gemini Ultra 1.0 cards and Google One subscription perks. OpenAI introduces the GPT store, with the help of which you can deliver branded cards with relative ease. Microsoft integrates Copilot Pro right into its productivity software, including GitHub’s indispensable Codespaces.

Both chatbots showed similarities in meeting summaries when testing outputs for productivity tasks and creative applications. Gemini did a better job of rephrasing emails, while ChatGPT Plus struggled with stilted writing. They both had trouble with non-work tasks, like coming up with Instagram captions. ChatGPT Plus did better at designing a party invitation, but both were way off when it came to image generation. In role-playing scenarios, both chatbots had entertaining responses but ChatGPT Plus managed to insert more humorous quips.

Given these privacy concerns, users are reminded to avoid sharing sensitive information that might be used to train machine learning algorithms. There are opt-out options, but Slack could still keep copies of conversations for abuse monitoring even if chat history is otherwise disabled.

In short, your decision to subscribe to an AI chatbot should depend on your specific needs, and you'll want to carefully weigh features, outputs, and privacy against each other. They offer a lot of functionality, but a careful eye on what you need in practice is crucial.
