ChatGPT creator, OpenAI, appears to be suffering some connectivity issues right now. We’ll keep you updated.
Breaking situation: OpenAI and ChatGPT are down for many users, with a major outage reported by the company. We’ll keep an eye on things and keep reporting as it gets resolved.
Currently, over 6,500 users have reported issues with the website and API service.
The OpenAI service status page mentions the outage, with a “Major Outage” across both the API and ChatGPT’s web interface. Earlier today there were also issues with the Labs and Playground services.
