Supporters of ChatGPT admire the AI chatbot for a number of reasons, including its quick generation of in-depth writings. A little-known limitation, though, is that each query has a word and character limit on the amount of content that can be output.
Fortunately, there are simple workarounds for this restriction via the prompts you can utilize, as Reddit users and other AI aficionados have been debating for months.

How many words can you use in ChatGPT?
As part of its ongoing work on the AI chatbot, which is still in its research preview stage, ChatGPT’s parent firm, OpenAI, imposed the word and character limits. Its propensity for “social biases, hallucinations, and aggressive suggestions” as well as its tendency to produce erroneous content when the AI system is overloaded or unable to comprehend information are just a few of the problems with ChatGPT.
When the request becomes too complex for the AI to process, ChatGPT may similarly decide to stop creating content. The 500-word or 4,000-character mark is where this occurs. You might discover that the chatbot abruptly ends a sentence after 500 words if you happen to ask for a certain amount of words above that.

This is how you can exceed the ChatGPT word limit:
Useful instructions include continue, move on, and keep going to address this problem. As an illustration, when ChatGPT was asked to write a 1000-word essay about the history of Irish whiskey, it chopped off the sentence at roughly 618 words. As soon as the word “continue” was typed, ChatGPT continued to create the essay until it reached 1,043 words.
By designing your prompt with the word limit in mind, you can also get around this problem. To instruct ChatGPT to halt communication at a specific point, you can put in the first 500 words of a 1000-word essay about XYZ. You can then enter a comparable command, such as continue, go on, or keep on.
How is ChatGPT being updated by OpenAI?
A significant portion of the ChatGPT word and character restrictions are based on the GPT-3.5 language model. Based on GPT-3.5, ChatGPT was released to the public in November 2022. GPT-4, the newest language model from OpenAI, has enhanced word support in addition to other enhancements, and it was just released. With higher precision, context awareness, and originality, according to OpenAI, GPT-4 can analyze up to 25,000 words of text.

Currently, the ChatGPT Plus API makes GPT-4 accessible to programmers and users. GPT-3.5 continues to be the language model used by ChatGPT’s free version. On whether or when it will update to GPT-4, there is no information at this time.
In addition, OpenAI has worked on GPT-4 with a number of companies, groups, and even governments. Microsoft has additionally acknowledged that GPT-4 is the foundation of its new Bing Search, which includes an AI chatbot. In February, a new version of the search engine was released. Bing Chat, on the other hand, has its own drawbacks. Its users frequently receive depressing and irrational comments from the chatbot, forcing Microsoft to set daily turn restrictions on how much it can handle. Finally, the brand started boosting conversation support once again; it is currently up to 150 daily turns.
