ChatGPT is getting a new Connect Apps feature that will allow users to integrate their Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive with the artificial intelligence (AI) platform. This feature will allow users to eliminate the inconvenience of downloading documents to their devices and then manually uploading them to the AI ​​platform. However, this feature is only available to paid users of the chatbot, which includes ChatGPT Plus, Teams, and Enterprise users. Notably, the AI ​​firm has also begun rolling out GPT-4o to users globally.

The feature was announced by OpenAI via a blog post, where it also introduced a few more features. All these features are part of the company’s spring update, which also introduced the GPT-4o AI model with an emotional voice and computer vision capabilities. Paid ChatGPT users will now get the option to directly upload Google Sheets, Docs, Slides, and Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files to ChatGPT with the new App Link feature.

The app linking option will allow users to integrate their primary cloud storage service between Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive (corporate and personal account) with the platform. Although the company hasn’t specified, this feature should be available on both the website and mobile apps. To find the feature, users will need to tap the paper clip icon located at the left end of the text field. Tapping on the menu option will open a larger box that will show Google and Microsoft cloud storage that can be connected.

Once connected, users can directly upload the files and the AI ​​chatbot will process them. Apart from this, OpenAI also introduces interactive tables and charts for ChatGPT. Now, when the platform generates a table or chart, users can interact with it and make edits. While they won’t be able to make manual edits at this stage, they can write additional prompts to regroup tables or change the colors of a pie chart and the AI ​​will do it.

Once the final chart or table is produced, users will also be able to download it. OpenAI says that the interactive feature supports several chart types, and in case the type specified by the user is not available, the chatbot will generate a static chart.
