Anthropic has revamped Claude’s potential and improved its versatility with updates to the developer console, equipping developers with tools to experiment and customise the chatbot’s responses. These improvements solidify Claude’s competition with ChatGPT in the AI landscape, offering enhanced chatbot capabilities for users and developers alike.
