ChatGPT now has numerous extensions. Many of them can help make work or everyday life easier. With a so-called ChatGPT plugin you can even have link content summarized.
ChatGPT Plus has had two new features for some time now. Users of the paid subscription can, for example, activate so-called web browsing. This allows you to allow ChatGPT to search the Internet for current data.
In addition, Plus users now have the option to activate third-party plugins. With an extension, ChatGPT can summarize any link content for you.
ChatGPT: How to activate plugins
With the “Link Reader” plugin, ChatGPT can summarize the content behind a link for you. To achieve this, it only takes a few clicks.
First, you need to make sure that the plugin function is activated on ChatGPT. To do this, click on the three-dot menu at the bottom left after you have logged in to the website.
Then select “Settings” and “Beta Features”. Then activate the slider under “Plugins”. Note: Since OpenAI is gradually rolling out its new functions, the plugins may not yet be available to all users.
“Link Reader” plugin: summarize content with ChatGPT
Now you should theoretically be able to download third-party plugins. To do this, first click on “Plugins” in the drop-down list and then on “Plugin Store”. Then install the “Link Reader” extension using the search.
The extension lets you access the content of all types of links via ChatGPT – including websites, online PDFs, images, and more. The only thing you have to do is insert a link and ask the AI for the corresponding content.
ChatGPT automatically connects to the “Link Reader” and spits out an answer to your query. The plugin can above all help to quickly summarize different content.
