💡 Quick Guide

We tested out Grok over the past few days. Like most tools, it’s always fun to dig in and get your hands dirty, Here’s what we learned.

Grok Pros & Cons


  • Varied Modes: Grok can run in two different modes - fun mode for humor and snarkiness and regular mode for more serious conversations.

  • Real-Time Aggregation: monitor breaking news, trending topics, event coverage in real time.

  • Mobile Access: as long as your X app is up to date, it’s accessible in the side menu.


  • Paid Subscription: To use Grok, you need to be a paid X Premium+ subscriber, which costs $16 per month or $168 per year.

  • Limited Availability: Currently, it is only available to users in the United States.

  • Early Testing: Grok is still in the early testing stages, which can affect its behavior, and it may provide factually incorrect information or miss context.

  • Privacy Concerns: There are privacy concerns as Grok might store your chats for debugging purposes, and users are advised to exercise caution when sharing conversations publicly.

  • Inconsistent Responses: The responses from Grok can vary greatly based on how questions are phrased. I asked it to find tweets by a specific person and several times it replied back with tweets from completely random and irrelevant accounts.

  • Poor Training: the model learns based on of all the information posted on X, which means it has license to millions of posts including all the ones full of misinformation and bad data.

In summary, the use case to prompt for real-time information is most appealing, especially if your work requires you to be immediately informed. For most of you, the cons simply outweigh the pros and it’s likely not worth recommending at this point.
