You Can Ask Unlimited Questions with ChatGPT 3 and 3.5 Per Hour
The number of questions you can ask ChatGPT in an hour depends on which version you are currently using.
With ChatGPT 3 and ChatGPT 3.5, there are no limits imposed - you have unlimited queries. You can have as many conversations and ask as many questions as you want within a 60 minute period using these AI models.
ChatGPT 4 Has a 50 Query Per 4 Hour Limit
However, the newer ChatGPT 4 does enforce query limits to prevent overuse. Specifically, ChatGPT 4 allows a maximum of 50 questions in any 4-hour window.
Once you exceed 50 questions in 4 hours, you may start seeing "Too many requests" errors informing you the limit has been reached. At that point, you'll need to wait for the 4-hour period to elapse before resuming queries to avoid further errors.
This quota helps ensure fair usage across all ChatGPT 4 users. While inconvenient at times, it's understandable given the extremely high demand.
Tips for Respecting Usage Limits
Here are some tips for staying within ChatGPT's usage boundaries:
- Track your questions - Keep a rough count so you know how close you are to the 50 query limit with ChatGPT 4.
- Spread out conversations - Try not to barrage it with multiple long conversations back-to-back. Space out your questions over time.
- Consolidate requests - Combine multiple questions into one concise, well-formed query when possible.
- Check if waitlisting - Error messages may simply mean high load so trying again later often works.
- Consider upgrading - ChatGPT Plus subscribers may have higher limits, depending on current policies.
Future Improvements to Capabilities
OpenAI frequently enhances model capabilities and plans new releases like ChatGPT 4. So functionality may evolve over time as AI capabilities expand.
For now, remember ChatGPT 3 has unlimited queries while ChatGPT 4 has a 50 query per 4 hour limit. Check the current documentation for updates.
