Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced user, we’re sure you’ll be impressed by the capabilities of this AI conversational bot. So let’s dive in and discover the cool things you can do with ChatGPT.

Discover the Cool Things You Can Do with ChatGPT (2023)
There’s a lot of things you can get the ChatGPT AI bot to do. From fun things like getting ideas for decorations, party planning, and more, to more useful ChatGPT benefits like helping you debug your code, or even write code for you. In fact, the introduction to this article has been written by ChatGPT and it’s pretty good. With that, let’s check out some of the cool features of ChatGPT that make it stand out.

Use ChatGPT as a Linux Terminal
Possibly one of the coolest things you can get OpenAI ChatGPT to do, is to pretend it’s a fully functioning Linux terminal. You can even use Linux commands, create files and directories, and a lot more. Heck, you can even write and compile code within the terminal, and execute it if you want.

To enable the terminal, you have to write the following text in the chatbox (courtesy of Jonas Degrave):

I want you to act as a Linux terminal. I will type commands and you will reply with what the terminal should show. I want you to only reply with the terminal output inside one unique code block, and nothing else. Do not write explanations. Do not type commands unless I instruct you to do so. When I need to tell you something in English I will do so by putting text inside curly brackets {like this}. My first command is pwd.

Speaking of using ChatGPT as a Linux terminal, did you know you can use ChatGPT in a Linux terminal as well? Yup.

Debug Code
If you’re a programmer, one of the applications of ChatGPT that will undoubtedly prove useful for you is to help debug your code and even spot some vulnerabilities. Basically, if you ask ChatGPT to check a piece of code for bugs, it will not only do so, but also explain what the bug is, and an example (or more) of how you can implement a potential fix.

Write Code
Whether you’re a programmer, or trying to learn, ChatGPT’s functionality can come in handy for you. If you’re trying to figure out how to write the code for a particular problem, you can simply ask the AI chatbot to do it for you. What’s more, you can even tell it which programming language you want to write the code in and it will do it for you.

For testing, I asked ChatGPT to write the Python code for a terminal-based game of tic-tac-toe. I then saved the code as a python file on my computer and executed it in the Terminal, and it worked like a charm.

Play Tic-Tac-Toe
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can actually play the Tic Tac Toe game for which ChatGPT just wrote the code, inside the chat environment itself. To do this, you will have to combine a couple of things:

Make ChatGPT behave like a Linux terminal.

Ask it to write the python code for a terminal-based game of tic-tac-toe and to save it to a file. You can name the file anything you like, I have used the name “”.

Execute the following command to run the python program you just made ChatGPT write:

Enter the row, column values normally to play the game.

Explain Things
ChatGPT is also quite useful for learning about things. For example, you can ask the AI chatbot to explain the IPV6 header to you and it will do so with proper explanations. Basically, the next time you have a doubt about anything, you can simply ask ChatGPT to explain it to you.

Explain Like I am 5
If you’re trying to learn about more complex topics, you can even ask ChatGPT to explain concepts to you in layman terms. Just add “explain like I’m 5” to your query and the chatbot will oblige. For example, I asked it to explain wormholes like I’m 5.

Explain in a Particular Style
If you’re just trying to have some fun, you can even ask ChatGPT to explain things to you in a particular style. For example, you can ask it to explain the HTTPS stack in the style of a cowboy from old westerns and the results are hilarious.

Get Ideas for AI Art, Decoration, Party Themes
The next time you’re stuck trying to figure out ideas for a party theme, or just looking for inspiration about your next house remodel, give ChatGPT a shot. Simply ask it to suggest party themes and it will do so. For example, I asked ChatGPT to suggest some party themes for a birthday party for a 29 year old and this is what it came up with.

Find Answers to Homework and Assignment Questions with ChatGPT
Another one of ChatGTP’s benefits is that it can help you solve your homework and assignments. Whether you’re in school, or at the university, ChatGTP can help you with your assignments with ease. Here’s an example of me asking ChatGPT to explain the IPV4 header.

Use ChatGPT to Write Music
This one is probably the one that’s most useful for me. I like writing my own songs and composing them, but ChatGPT pretty much makes this an instant endeavour. You can ask the chatbot to write a song on any topic and it will come up with something rather decent in no time. What’s more, you can even get it to come up with the accompanying chords for the music.

Use ChatGPT for Translations
This one isn’t as useful as it is simply cool and clever. You can use ChatGPT to translate text from one language to another, and it works with quite a lot of languages easily. However, you would normally probably just use Google Translate or Apple Translate to do this, so it’s not the most useful of features.

Extract Data from Text
ChatGPT can also help you extract data from text. All you have to do is provide the text to the chatbot, and tell it what kinds of data to extract and in which format. Take a look at the screenshot below.

Grade Essays
ChatGPT can be really useful for students, but it can also be quite useful for teachers. The AI tool can let you easily grade essays, and it even provides feedback on its grading. For example, if you ask ChatGPT to grade an essay, and it assigns it the grade of “B+”, it will also tell you why the essay has been graded at B+ along with suggestions for improvements.

Solve Maths Questions
In its original state, ChatGPT wasn’t the best with mathematical questions. However, with new updates, OpenAI has made it quite good at handling math questions as well. So, if you’re stuck on a maths problem and you’re looking for the answer, ChatGPT can help. What’s more, it even shows its work, along with helpful explanations, so you can understand how to solve the problem yourself.

Get Creative with ChatGPT with these Unique Ideas and Examples
Well, those were 12 cool things you can do with ChatGPT. As you can see, you can use it to do fun stuff like writing music, but you can also use it to do more serious things like writing and debugging code, extracting data from text, finding answers to assignment questions, and a lot more. You can even use it as a Linux terminal if you want. So, what are some of the useful things you’ve used ChatGPT for? Let us know in the comments.
