Plugins is a new functionality available to ChatGPT Plus users that will change ChatGPT forever because it adds many features to what ChatGPT can do natively.

As of today, there are around 84 plugins in the Plugin Store. I tried them all and, in this article, I’ll share with you what I think are the best plugins available.

Below are the ChatGPT plugins that are making my life easier.

First Things First — Enable Plugins on Your Account

To turn on plugins, go to ChatGPT, click on the three dots in the lower-left corner, click on settings, select “Beta features” and turn on Plugins. Then close the window and select Plugins from GPT-4.


You can install any plugin from the plugin store. Plugins are only available to ChatGPT Plus users.

ChatGPT Plugin #1: Video Insights

If you’re like me and watch a lot of YouTube videos, this plugin is for you. Video Insights is a ChatGPT plugin that allows us to interact with online video platforms like YouTube or Daily Motion. This means that we can analyze entire YouTube videos and get insights from them in a few seconds!


I did a test with one of my YouTube videos titled How I’d Use ChatGPT to Learn to Code published in December 2022 and this plugin did a great job summarizing my entire video!


All the key points I mentioned in the video were in the summary. Amazing!

Some issues this plugin has is that it can’t summarize videos longer than 10 minutes and it sometimes throws timeout errors.

That said, Video Insights can analyze videos that were published even a few hours ago. I asked it to summarize this YouTube video, which was released hours before writing this post and it did it!


ChatGPT Plugin #2: Link Reader

Now we can analyze the content in web pages, PDFs, PPTs, and all kinds of links inside ChatGPT with the plugin Link Reader.


You only need to provide the link and the type of analysis you want to do with it.

Let’s start by summarizing an 800-word article that describes the rules writers have to follow to submit an article to my website.


The way it summarized the 3 sections of the article was very impressive. It even included the email to which writers should send their drafts.

I also tried summarizing a PDF about AI in medicine by providing its link and it did a good job.


Just like that, you can analyze images, PPT, Word, and other docs, but it might sometimes fail.

That’s why whenever I have issues with a specific file format, I use other plugins. Below is one that always works with PDFs.

ChatGPT Plugin #3: Ask Your PDF

Reading papers and articles is sometimes difficult because some are complex and technical, but now we can easily summarize PDFs in a few seconds with the ChatGPT plugin Ask Your PDF.


You don’t need an extra AI tool to do this, but you can summarize any PDF right from ChatGPT.

To work with this plugin you need to provide it with a link that ends with .pdf or with a PDF file that you have on your computer.

I tried to summarize this PDF about AI in medicine using its link, but it wasn’t possible, so I upload the document and pasted the Doc ID.


ChatGPT Plugin #4: Speak

If you’re into learning foreign languages, you’ll love this ChatGPT plugin.

In the past, you had to use some prompt engineering techniques to turn ChatGPT into your AI language tutor, but with the plugin Speak, you just need to ask a simple question to obtain a detailed explanation.


Here’s how ChatGPT would teach me how to say “I like AI” in Spanish.


It gives the answer but it’s very basic (like Google Translator). However, Speak gives alternatives and example conversations.


As a Spanish speaker, I have to say that the vocabulary suggested is good, but the example conversation doesn’t make much sense (it’s still grammatically correct though).

In previous tests the answer given was perfect. Hopefully, in the future, the plugin will be more consistent with the quality of the responses.

ChatGPT Plugin #5: There’s an AI for That

Tired of wasting hours looking for an AI tool that makes your life easier? Look no more! With the ChatGPT plugin, “There’s an AI for That” you’ll find a list of AI tools for you in seconds.


The other day, a friend of mine asked me about AI tools for web design. I felt embarrassed that I didn’t know even one, but thanks to this plugin now I can recommend him 10 good AI tools.


When you click on any of the links listed you’ll be redirected to the website of the plugin. There you can find a quick description of the tool, price, and the link to visit its website.

ChatGPT Plugin #6: Wolfram

Wolfram is a ChatGPT plugin that allows us to compute expert-level answers using Wolfram’s algorithms and AI technology.


Wolfram’s is commonly used for maths. It can provide step-by-step solutions for algebra, geometry, statistics calculus problems, and more.

The best part is that you can use Wolfram’s capabilities to help you in your everyday life like calculating a weight-loss regimen.


Wolfram can also plot charts, which ChatGPT can’t do natively.

Say we want to compare the population growth trends between the USA and Brazil from 1920 to 2020. Here’s how Wolfram would do it.


ChatGPT Plugin #7: Prompt Perfect

Prompt Perfect is a ChatGPT plugin that can optimize prompts for ChatGPT, Midjourney, DALL-E, and other tools.


Prompt Perfect works fine on its website but for some reason the ChatGPT plugin isn’t as good. Here’s an example of a Midjourney prompt I tried to optimize.


That wasn’t the prompt I was expecting … actually, I was expecting an optimization like the one below.


Hopefully, in new updates, this plugin will be as good as on the website.
