Microsoft has announced: GPT Builder will be retired

IMPORTANT: Microsoft will remove the ability to create GPTs and delete all GPTs and associated data between July 10 and 14, 2024.

Microsoft will remove the ability to create GPTs starting July 10, 2024, and then remove all GPTs (Microsoft and customer created) along with their associated GPT data also starting July 10, 2024 until 14 July 2024. This means that GPT Builder, also known as Copilot GPTs, will be withdrawn from Copilot Pro, making subscription less attractive to users.

Why did Microsoft make this decision? Microsoft's decision to remove the ability to create GPTs and retire existing GPTs was made to focus on developing other technologies and products. This is part of their strategy to improve and provide innovative solutions in other areas.

How will this decision affect existing users? Microsoft's decision to remove the ability to create GPTs and retire existing GPTs will affect existing users using GPT Builder or other GPTs created in Copilot. These users will no longer be able to create or access these GPTs starting July 10, 2024. It is important that users are aware of this change and explore alternatives or adapt to the new conditions.

What are the alternatives to GPT Builder today? There are a few alternatives to GPT Builder that you can consider:
OpenGPTs: This is an open-source alternative to GPT Builder, developed to give users more control over the Large Language Model (LLM). OpenGPTs allows you to choose from over 60 LLMs and customize the prompts and tools used. You can access OpenGPTs either through the hosted version or through local installation.
Hugging Face: Hugging Face offers a wider variety of models, including Mistral's Mixtral platform and Meta's Llama 2. These are open-source alternatives to GPT Builder and are available for free.
FlowGPT: If you want to create your own GPT, you can use the free GPT Builder from the FlowGPT platform. Simply write your idea, copy the generated prompt and create a GPT on your FlowGPT profile.

How can existing users migrate to these alternatives? To migrate existing users to the mentioned alternatives, follow these steps:

Evaluation and Selection: Analyze the alternatives (OpenGPTs, Hugging Face and FlowGPT) and decide which best suits your needs.
Export data: If you have existing GPTs in GPT Builder, export the relevant data. Make sure you have access to the prompts and results of your GPTs.
Installing or accessing the alternative: Depending on your choice, install the platform or access it online. Follow the specific instructions for each alternative.
Recreating prompts: If you use specific prompts in GPT Builder, recreate them in the new platform. Make sure the prompts are similar for consistent results.
Testing and tweaking: Test the new GPTs and tweak the prompts if necessary. Make sure you get the results you want.
User communication: Notify existing users of the change and provide them with instructions for accessing the new GPTs. Make sure you provide support during the migration process.

Microsoft's retirement of GPT Builder is a significant change for users who have relied on this platform to create and use GPTs. However, available alternatives such as OpenGPTs, Hugging Face, and FlowGPT provide viable options for continuing to work with advanced language models. Users are encouraged to explore the alternatives and prepare for the necessary transition.
