8 Ways to Make ChatGPT Respond Faster Without Typing Simulation

ChatGPT can generate creative and engaging responses for various topics and tasks. However, sometimes, users may experience slow or delayed responses, affecting productivity and the user experience. Although typing simulation can make ChatGPT seem more human-like, it can also result in slower response times. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of methods to help ChatGPT respond faster.

How to Make ChatGPT Respond Faster?

As advanced as ChatGPT is, there are still scenarios where the AI chatbot can slow down. This might not affect the results but can hinder productivity and the overall user experience. We have delved into this issue and compiled a list of eight simple methods for making ChatGPT respond faster.

Method 1 – Check ChatGPT Server Status

If you’re experiencing slow responses in ChatGPT, it could be due to technical issues or an overloaded server. To verify if the server is the cause of the problem, you can check the DownDetector website for OpenAI. This website shows the number of outrages reported by users for a specific service.

Method 2 – Ensure Internet Speed and Stability

ChatGPT relies on the internet to communicate with its server and provide answers. Therefore, a slow internet connection will lead to a delay in response time. To ensure a stable and speedy internet connection, here are a few things you can do to improve the internet speed and make ChatGPT respond faster.

  • Use a wired connection instead of a wireless one, if possible.
  • If you are using a wireless connection, make sure that you are within range of the router/modem to ensure a strong connection.
  • Avoid using multiple devices or bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming videos, downloading files, or playing online games.
  • Test your internet speed using online tools like Speedtest or Fast, and ensure it meets the recommended speed for ChatGPT of at least 5 Mbps.
  • Contact your internet service provider if the connection is abnormally slow. 
  • Upgrade your internet plan, if necessary.

Method 3 – Clear Browser Cache

The browser cache is short-term data storage that helps improve the website’s loading speed. However, as time passes, it accumulates and can lead to performance issues. If you access ChatGPT through a web browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, you should clear your browser cache periodically. To do so, follow these simple steps.

1. Click on the threedot menu at the top right corner of your browser.

2. Click on “Settings” from the drop-down menu.

3. On the settings page, click “Privacy and security.”

4. Now, click on “Clear browsing data.”

5. Select only the “Cached images and files” option and deselect the others.

6. Click “Clear data” to clean the browser cache files.

Method 4 – Disable VPN Services

If you are using a VPN service like NordVPN, ExpressVPN, or TunnelBear to connect with ChatGPT, it is recommended that you temporarily turn it off. While VPN services provide privacy and security, they also impact your internet speed and latency, leading to slower ChatGPT responses.


Disabling a VPN service usually involves turning off the service within the application and waiting for it to be disabled. Now, you can access full internet speeds with much less latency. This should improve the speed at which ChatGPT formulates responses.

Method 5 – Simplify Queries

ChatGPT may take longer to process the query and provide a result when faced with complex queries. It’s best to keep the query brief and focused to speed up the process and clearly state the task. However, it’s important not to leave out crucial information that could affect the quality of the result. Therefore, the prompt should contain all the necessary details to achieve the desired outcome. Keep the following points in mind –

  • Provide clear and specific inputs, and avoid vague or ambiguous ones.
  • Use simple and direct language.
  • Avoid multiple questions or tasks in one query. Break them down into smaller and simpler ones.
  • Avoid questions or tasks requiring a lot of background knowledge. Focus on more relevant ones.

Method 6 – Upgrade to ChatGPT Plus

If you use ChatGPT regularly or are a heavy user, you might want to consider upgrading to ChatGPT Plus. It is a premium subscription service that offers several benefits, such as:

  • Access to GPT-4 ensures better reliability of the responses and fewer factual mistakes.
  • Supports longer requests and conversations.
  • Priority access and access to dedicated servers during peak usage times.
  • Early access to new features and enhancements.
  • Reduced latency.
  • Access to current information using web search.
  • Image generation using Dall-E.
  • More features, such as voice input and output and advanced settings.

To upgrade to ChatGPT Plus, visit the ChatGPT website and select the plan that suits your needs and budget.

Method 7 – Use a More Powerful Device

The performance of the device running ChatGPT can indirectly affect its responsiveness. While most of the functions are offloaded to the cloud, the resources on the device also play a crucial role. If the device is outdated, old, or low-end, it could be resource-constrained and cause ChatGPT to slow down. The device could have trouble running the app or the browser, as it can put a load on the processor. In such cases, you can try using a more contemporary device with better internals to improve the speed of the responses. 

Method 8 – Explore ChatGPT alternatives

If none of the methods mentioned here helped, you can always try some alternatives. While ChatGPT brought AI to the forefront, competition has caught up well, offering options that can do everything ChatGPT can and sometimes more. Here are three alternatives to ChatGPT.

Google Gemini

Gemini is excellent for creative writing and research on any subject and has a quick response time. Thanks to its integration with Google’s ecosystem, it offers several advantages.
