The AI company Anthropic, developer of a rival chatbot. ChatGPT known as Claude, has launched a paid subscription for him. Is called Claude Proand among other things it will offer priority access to the bot when it has a lot of traffic and use, it will allow sending more messages to the bot, maintaining longer conversations and using the new functions that are added to Claude as a priority.
At the moment, Claude Pro will be available only to subscribers in the United States and the United Kingdom, and will be priced at $20 per month. It is unknown when it will be available in more regions, or what price it will have in them. In the UK, it will be £18 each month. To subscribe you will only have to access the user account of those who want to do so and access the option that allows you to upgrade to the Pro payment plan from your profile.
Your subscribers, as we have mentioned, will have more capacity to use the chatbot. With Claude Pro they will have up to five times more capacity to do this than with the free plan of the second version of the chatbot. This will allow them to send the bot more messages in a shorter period of time. According to the company, a typical user will have a minimum of 100 messages every eight hours, always depending on Claude’s capacity.
Anthropic will also notify users when they only have 10 messages left to use until the eight-hour period set to reset the available amount and return it to its initial amount passes. Claude Pro will have other limits, such as the size of the associated files sent to the bot, and the length of the conversation.
The company launched Claude last March as a competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, billing it as a bot that’s easy to chat with and less likely to produce harmful responses. In July, it launched its second version, Claude 2, which is also only available for now in the US and UK, and is the basis for the Claude Pro plan.
The free version of the bot will continue to be accessible through the claude.ai website, with its usage and conversation limits, and with waits during periods of high usage. According to the company, it needs these limitations, since Claude 2 needs to use high-powered equipment to run, in addition to because with them, Claude can allow its new users to test its capabilities for free and those who make more extensive use of your resources can integrate the bot into their daily workflows.
