The well-known CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman, recently addressed the rumors circulating about the OpenAI search engine.

Altman clarified that despite the buzz, the upcoming announcement scheduled just before Google I/O is not about GPT-5 or a search engine.

In an official post, OpenAI stated that the launch will feature updates on ChatGPT and the latest model, GPT-4.

Altman further emphasised in a social media post that it is neither GPT-5 nor a search engine, but rather, they have been diligently working on new features they believe users will appreciate.

Altman's tweet reaffirmed OpenAI's commitment to its AI objectives, particularly enhancing its AI chatbot, ChatGPT.

Previous reports hinted at OpenAI's plans to unveil a search product before Google's I/O conference, posing competition to the tech giant.

OpenAI has already streamlined its AI chatbot to be more concise and focused.

Additionally, the new GPT-4 Turbo model is now accessible to paid ChatGPT users, trained on publicly available data up to December last year.
