Are you eager to get your hands on the powerful GPT-4 model from OpenAI and start using it for your projects? We understand your excitement!

According to OpenAI, the GPT-4 rollout is slow due to unprecedented demand, and it might take weeks or even months before it's available to everyone.

But don't worry, we've got you covered. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of requesting access to GPT-4 and share some tips on how to potentially speed up the process.

How to Join the GPT-4 Waitlist

First things first, you need to join the GPT-4 waitlist to request access. Here's how:

  1. Visit the OpenAI GPT-4 waitlist page at https://openai.com/waitlist/gpt-4-api.

  2. Fill in your personal and business details, including your first name, last name, email, company name (optional) and OpenAI organization ID. You can find your organization ID in your OpenAI Organization Settings.

  3. Describe how you primarily plan to use GPT-4 and share your ideas for building with it (see tips below).

  4. Click on Join Waitlist.

How to Increase Your Chances of Getting Off the Waitlist Faster

While there's no surefire way to guarantee quick access to GPT-4, following the tips below may improve your chances:

  • How to answer "How do you primarily plan to use GPT-4? "
    For us, choosing the second option "Integrate into an existing product" while applying for the waitlist worked well in the past. I believe this reassures OpenAI that you have an established product with existing users, which will provide end-user feedback faster and better comply with OpenAI's ethical requirements.

  • How to answer "Are there specific ideas you’re excited to build with GPT-4? We are particularly excited about use cases that were not previously possible with our other models."
    Provide a compelling reason: Explain why you need access to GPT-4 specifically and why GPT-3.5 isn't sufficient for your use case. A well-thought-out answer will make the biggest difference. In our case, we mentioned that we had been running or AI marketing analysis and text generation platform on GPT-3.5, and were seeing room for improvement both in "data extraction" and "text generation" use cases.

  • Age of OpenAI account and previous OpenAI model usage
    If you've built projects using GPT-2, GPT-3, DALL-E, or Codex, mention them in your application. Demonstrating your experience with OpenAI's models can make your request more appealing.

  • Billing information
    Make sure you have a credit card on file (activated your paid OpenAI account, not be confused with a ChatGPT Plus subscription) and have been billed for previous model usage. This shows that you're an existing, reliable customer.

  • Be an active user and provide feedback
    Whenever OpenAI releases a new product, try it out and share your feedback. This proactive approach might help you gain access to new products faster, as it demonstrates your engagement with the platform.

Conclusion

While there's no guaranteed way to get off the GPT-4 waitlist quickly, following the steps and tips above can improve your chances.

Remember, OpenAI is likely prioritizing requests based on computational resource availability. As more resources become available and public testing becomes feasible, everyone should eventually be able to use GPT-4 like GPT-3.

So, be patient and keep an eye on your inbox for that much-awaited access!
