TLDR: OpenAI introduces custom instructions for ChatGPT users, allowing them to set specific contexts and preferences for interactions with the chatbot, enhancing personalization.
The model considers custom instructions in every conversation, reducing the need for repetitive input, and making interactions more efficient and personalized.
Custom instructions also work with plug-ins, suggesting restaurants or flights based on location.
The feature is available for Plus plan users, but not in the EU and the U.K. OpenAI uses this data to train its API models for better adaptation to instructions.
