Grok Chatbot Now Available to Premium Subscribers on X

Social network X has recently announced the rollout of its xAI’s Grok chatbot to Premium tier subscribers. This move comes after Elon Musk, the driving force behind the social network, declared last month that the chatbot would be expanded to more paid users.

Initially, Grok was available only to Premium+ users, who pay a higher subscription fee. Now, users on the $8 per month plan can also access this advanced chatbot.

What is Grok Chatbot?

Grok is a product of xAI and functions as a Large Language Model (LLM) chatbot. It’s designed to interact with users in a conversational manner, providing responses and information on a wide range of topics.

The chatbot operates in two modes: a “Regular mode” for standard interactions and a “Fun mode” for a more relaxed and entertaining experience.

Features and Capabilities

Grok has been integrated into the social network X with features like summarizing trending news stories. This functionality was recently showcased in a new explore view within the chatbot.

However, it’s important to note that, like other LLM products, Grok may sometimes return inaccurate answers, and the chatbot displays labels indicating this possibility.

Controversy and Competition

Grok’s development and deployment have not been without controversy. Elon Musk has been openly critical of competitors like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini. Musk’s approach to xAI and Grok seems to be part of a broader strategy to rival these products in the burgeoning field of AI chatbots.

The expansion of Grok chatbot access to more users of social network X marks a significant step in the integration of AI into social media platforms. As AI technology continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how Grok and similar chatbots develop and how they are received by the public.
