Chat GPT Alternatives – models to know about

The world of AI language (and image) models is wider than Chat GPT

Chat GPT Alternatives - hero

Last Updated on

OpenAI’s Chat GPT offers the reality of high-performing AI chatbots. The purpose of these chatbots is to communicate with users in a conversational manner. And being open source, users can suggest any improvements. 

As a result, this technology has taken the internet by storm. Millions of users are using it, but there have been some issues with this chatbot. Particularly when Chat GPT is at capacity and users cannot access it.

Therefore it’s good to know about some quality Chat GPT alternatives. Here are some options that can help you to level up with AI more easily if Chat GPT is not working for you. Some are more complex, and others far more accessible, while some are free and others have pricing structures too.

Chat GPT Alternatives


Google’s Bard is an “experimental conversational service” powered by Google Lamda, and is currently limited in availability for testers only. The service is likely to be available to the public though and could offer direct competition to Chat GPT.

Google states that the aim for Bard is to “combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity”. That broad aim is joined by the power to draw information from the web, and summarize and deliver information in an accessible, human-like way.

Bard perhaps represents the most obvious alternative to Chat GPT, although it is yet to be fully released to the public.


Not specifically its own service, Bloom is an open-source multi-language model. This Chat GPT alternative added 384 graphic cards with a total of 80 GB of memory to 176 billion parameters to train – 1 billion more than the GPT 3 model.


DeepMind researchers developed a project named Chinchilla, which is more intimately known as the GPT3 killer.

It’s an optimal computing model that has 70 billion protocols. Chinchilla has four times more data than Gopher, also developed by DeepMind. Chinchilla is reportedly one of the best options for downstream evaluation tasks (also known as the task a user wants to solve).

It’s a top-notch AI-based writing tool and has educational data on history. Therefore, it can create articles with proper style and structure minus grammatical errors. Without human help, it can produce a useful and readable article in less than an hour.

Megatron-Turing Natural Language Generation

Microsoft and Nvidia made a language model with 530 billion parameters, making it bigger and better than others available. Called Megatron-Turing Natural Language Generation, it is one of the best English language models – trained on SuperPOD by the Selene supercomputer.


Quite well known, Jasper AI is a writing model previously known as Jarvis. It has also acquired other writing tools, such as Shortly AI and Headline, and these will be integrated into it in the coming years.

You can select a topic and fill out the relevant form, and Jasper will create the article for you according to the instructions you have entered. The service has a 5-day free trial, with its ‘starter’ plan starting at $24 per month.


Quillbot is an AI-powered tool to help improve users’ writing. Its primary function is to paraphrase text pasted into the application to suggest improvements fitting seven different modes:

  1. Standard
  2. Fluency
  3. Formal
  4. Simple
  5. Creative
  6. Expand
  7. Shorten

As well as offering the above improvements to pasted text, Quillbot has tools for grammar and plagiarism checking, co-writing, summarizing, and citation generation. Many of Quillbots tools are free to use, but there is also a Premium subscription to remove some limitations and add features too. It even has extensions for Chrome and Word.


Replika is pretty close to Chat GPT in conversational uses, and you can have similar conversations here, too. It can talk and give text replies at any time without delay. It is primarily an AI chatbot you can use to discuss general topics like love and life, just like you do with friends.


ELSA stands for English Language Speech Assistant, a language learning app. It is available on Android and iOS platforms to download. The app analyzes users’ speech and helps them learn and understand the language.

ELSA has free Pro options and Pro costs $11.99 for one month, $8.66p/m for three months, and $6.25p/m for one-year access.

Chat GPT alternatives – final thoughts

We have discussed some of the top alternatives of Chat GPT above. You can perform a wide range of functions using these alternatives, and there are others too – including Rytr, Socratic, and Faceapp – which use AI modeling on imagery.

So, when Chat GPT is not working, you’re not sure about the price or if you require another specific application that is more easily served by an alternative, you can use one of these instead.
