Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that the company would soon add OpenAI’s popular AI chatbot ChatGPT to its cloud-based Azure service very soon.
“ChatGPT is coming soon to Azure OpenAI Service, which is now generally available, as we help customers apply world’s most advanced AI models to their own business imperatives,” CEO Satya Nadella tweeted on Tuesday morning.
The software giant Microsoft also announced the ‘general availability’ of its Azure OpenAI Service, which provides customers with access to various AI tools for use in their own applications.

The news comes amid reports that Microsoft is in talks to invest about $10 billion in OpenAI, which may increase the valuation of the San Francisco-based firm to $29 billion.
With the new changes, ChatGPT as a whole, and not just its underlying tech, will soon be available through Microsoft’s cloud. Those using the Azure Service already have access to tools such as the GPT-3.5 language system that ChatGPT is built on and the Dall-E model for generating images from text prompts.
Public interest in OpenAI had surged following its November release of the text-based chatbot that can draft prose, poetry, or even computer code on command. It is powered by generative artificial intelligence and conjures new content after training on vast amounts of data.
