GPTs are now accessible to all Chat GPT Plus users, marking a significant shift from the generic, all-purpose GPT models to more specific and purpose-oriented ones. It’s the biggest update of the year, and it brings an incredible ability: the power to create your very own GPT.

Now, you can perform multiple functions within one GPT 4 mode, including attaching images, uploading files, generating images, and browsing the web, making it an incredibly potent tool for everyday tasks.

In this guide, I’ll walk you through the process of creating your own custom GPTs, breaking down the seemingly intermediate task into simple, actionable steps.
