So you can install the ChatGPT extension in Google Chrome

Google Chrome is the most used browser in the world, since it has different tools, with the purpose of providing a better experience to users.

Among the aforementioned options are the ‘Extensions’, which are microprograms that can be installed for free and provide additional functions in the browser. For example, one of the most famous is AdBlock, because it allows the blocking of all ads in Google Chrome.

In this sense, the extension of ChatGPT has become a trend in social networks, a platform that emerges as an optimized version of the artificial intelligence model called GPT-3, developed by OpenAI and which has positioned itself as one of the most advanced today.

This AI is part of the systems called Large Language Models (large language models) that are based on automatic learning technology, which gives them the ability to read, summarize, translate texts.

ChatGPT also develops the ability to predict future words in a sentence, which gives them a fluency to produce texts with a structure similar to that used by human beings when speaking or writing.

How to install the ChatGPT extension?

It is important to mention that the installation process can only be carried out on a computer or laptop, since the ‘Extensions’ are not enabled on mobile devices.

  • Open Google Chrome.
  • Go to the Chrome Web Store.
  • Search for “ChatGPT for Google”.
  • Immediately afterwards, click on ‘Add to Chrome’ and then on ‘Add extension’.

Tips so that Google Chrome does not consume so much data on the cell phone

The browser is characterized by its high consumption of RAM, as well as data that can fill the internal memory of the mobile device, causing the cell phone to slow down or not being able to save more files on the phone.

However, there are different ways to optimize it, that is, you can reduce data and battery consumption through its configuration. For example, if you enter the ‘Safe Browsing’ section, unnecessary downloads, extensions and dangerous websites will be blocked.

According to the portal Xataka Android, this type of downloads spend several megabytes. Furthermore, malicious websites can contain malware, which can steal users’ personal data.

Steps to activate this tool:

  • Click on the three points located in the upper right.
  • Press the ‘Settings’ section.
  • Find and open ‘Privacy and security’.
  • Select ‘Safe Browsing’ and activate ‘Enhanced Protection’.

Another option that can be carried out is the synchronization of accounts. This tool allows data to be constantly updated, such as passwords, history or open tabs, which is why the cell phone’s battery can be seriously affected.

How to disable synchronization?


  • Enter the ‘Settings’.
  • Click on ‘Synchronization’.
  • Uncheck the ‘Sync all’ switch.

If Google Chrome appears slow on the device, it may be that the preloading of pages is the problem. In this sense, you must enter the ‘Privacy and security’ and open the option ‘Preload pages’. Immediately afterwards, you must choose the ‘Do not preload’ section to save data.

Another very frequent error among users is accumulating a large number of open tabs, that is, it will slow down the browser, since they can occupy RAM memory. To remove these tabs, just go to the box at the top right of the screen, tap it, and then swipe until they disappear.
