OpenAI’s app store for AI, the GPT Store, will not launch this year as previously announced, but rather on an unspecified date in early 2024, the company said. The delay is almost certainly due to the leadership shakeup that occurred in November, just after the announcement that is initial

The news had been first reported by Axios, which received the memo delivered to people and designers. It read in part: “we are actually likely to start the GPT shop year that is early next*). It this month, a few unexpected things have been keeping us busy! while we had expected to release” Moreover it detailed some future improvements into the feature that is new like a better configuration interface and debug messages.I have contacted OpenAI and others for further information and will update if they respond.

The launch of the store this raised eyebrows when it was officially announced at OpenAI’s Dev Day conference in November month. Though there clearly was a mockup that is working of store itself and a few of the fine-tuned models called GPTs available to inspect, there were a lot of unanswered questions.

In a Q&A with briefly dethroned CEO Sam Altman and CTO Mira Murati, I asked what the company’s plan was for the store as far as charging customers and paying developers. Their answer was, essentially, “we’ll see.”

Given how loose the launch plan was, and that a week that is full of at the the very least was likely lost into the quick but intense struggle of board versus CEO, the wait just isn’t a lot of a shock. With cold weather breaks nearing, the thought of shipping a product that is major duress while simultaneously navigating a new board and other priorities was probably a non-starter.

For OpenAI customers, GPTs can be made and still distributed to other people right, nonetheless they will never be openly detailed or in a position to indulge in any revenue-sharing plan (if OpenAI determines just how to apply one) before the shop officially launches.
