OpenAI announced the beta launch of “custom instructions” for ChatGPT on July 20. The much-anticipated feature allows users to submit their prompts along with instructions for the AI to consider before answering questions.
According to a blog post from the company, the feature works across prompts and sessions, and includes plugin support. As is usually the case, OpenAI is launching the new feature in beta, citing the high potential for unexpected outputs:
“Particularly during the beta period, ChatGPT will not always fully interpret custom instructions – sometimes it may ignore instructions or apply them when they were not intended.”
The feature represents an important step in the company’s effort to develop ChatGPT in a way that is able to “effectively reflect each individual’s diverse contexts and unique needs” while maintaining safety guardrails. Is.
Custom instructions are currently available in beta for ChatGPT Plus customers outside the UK and EU. The feature will be expanded to all users in the “coming weeks”.
Introducing Custom Instructions! This feature allows you to give ChatGPT custom requests or contexts that you want to apply to each conversation. Custom instructions are currently available to Plus users and we plan to make them available to all users soon! https://t.co/fVIM9GeYk2

The Custom Instructions feature can be a game changer for users who play complex signals. In the crypto world, this can save users countless hours of work by allowing users to enter their query parameters at once through multiple prompts.
For example, traders can set market positions at the start of the trading day via custom instructions and save time by repeatedly explaining their portfolio positions at the start of each prompt.
It can also be a useful tool for someone who wants to restrict chatbot responses for legal and localization purposes, for example a crypto trader or AI developer who wants information for GDPR compliance purposes.
However, as The Verge recently reported, experts believe that increasing query complexity increases the likelihood that ChatGPT will output incorrect information.
