Amid a chaotic week at OpenAI, the company’s chatbot ChatGPT is experiencing a widespread outage Tuesday afternoon.
According to Down Detector, which tracks reports of outages, the platform began seeing a spike in outages around 2 p.m. PT.
Insider verified the outage by asking ChatGPT various questions. The bot responded with: “Something went wrong. If this issue persists please contact us through our help center at help.openai.com.”
Outages are not atypical for the AI chatbot, and happen regularly when the company implements new features. OpenAI announced a version of ChatGPT that responds to voice commands around 3 p.m. ET.
Business Insider emailed OpenAI to ask about the outages. The company didn’t immediately respond on Tuesday afternoon.
