What does regenerate mean?

In ChatGPT, “regenerate” means asking the AI chatbot to give a clearer answer to your question.

If you don’t understand the answer, ask ChatGPT to rephrase and explain in clearer terms.

Let’s see how to do this.

How to regenerate a response in ChatGPT

You can regenerate a response in ChatGPT by clicking the “Regenerate” button once the AI is done writing its first message.

Alternatively, type in a new prompt saying “Regenerate” or “Explain clearer”.
