ChatGPT now lets you import files directly from Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive

Join us back in New York City on June 5 to collaborate with executive leaders in exploring comprehensive ways to audit AI models for bias, performance, and ethical compliance across diverse organizations. Find out how you can attend here.


The news continues from OpenAI this week: Today, the company announced that it has updated its Large Language Model (LLM) chatbot ChatGPT with the ability to import files directly From external cloud drives Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.

This capability will be available to paying subscribers of ChatGPT Plus, Team, and Enterprise users and will be available when using the new underlying GPT-4o model that debuted at OpenAI on Monday, as well as legacy models.

Users can find the new integration by clicking on the small paperclip icon located to the left of their prompt/text entry bar at the bottom of the default ChatGPT interface on desktop.

OpenAI posted an animated video (reposted below) demonstrating the workflow once this is done on its blog announcing the update and on its X account.

You’ll need to grant access from your Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive accounts to take advantage of this feature, but once you do, you can select a range of file types including spreadsheets, presentations, and documents to import directly into ChatGPT.

Next, OpenAI updated the ChatGPT interface to allow you to see spreadsheet files in particular in a full-screen view and with an interactive interface that displays any changes you make to them, using the underlying AI model in real time.

Once finished, you can also download a copy of the spreadsheet or document edited by ChatGPT directly from the ChatGPT interface.

As OpenAI wrote on its blog: “You can now customize and interact with bar, line, pie, and scatter charts in conversation. Hover over chart elements, ask additional questions, or select colors. When you’re ready, download it to use in presentations or documents.”

For privacy-conscious users, OpenAI notes in its blog that “we do not train on data from the ChatGPT team and enterprise customers, and ChatGPT Plus users can opt out of training through the data controls” (which are available in the settings menu).

Although it is ultimately a feature update, it is a very important update for those who use ChatGPT to work on documents. It should save users time and give them more options when using a chatbot.
