Use is limited and depends on the length of your queries. You can enter about 100 messages each month and you’ll be notified as you start to reach the limit. Your opportunities refresh monthly on the day you begin use, so you’ll have plenty of access to one of the most powerful tools in the industry.
Your logs of old messages (called chats) will remain visible for up to 90 days.

Having a dedicated AI app can help you:

  • Work faster – Boost earnings by being more efficient. Upwork Chat Pro uses generative AI to help you complete complex tasks and requests faster while speeding up workflows
