If you’re one of the many people who have already tried ChatGPT, the most popular artificial intelligence to date, we have great news for you. OpenAI, the company behind this well-known chatbot, has announced the launch of the first official ChatGPT mobile app in the United States. This means that ChatGPT is now officially available on iOS through the App Store, and it will be “coming soon” to Android, according to the company.
The ChatGPT app is completely free, ad-free, and allows for voice input using Whisper, an open-source speech recognition system developed by OpenAI. Just like the well-known web version, the app enables us to have natural language conversations with the AI, allowing us to ask questions or simply engage in conversation.
Upon logging into the iOS app, ChatGPT will synchronize your chat history across all devices, allowing it to access previous questions or searches made on the web version and providing you with that information. Currently, the app is only available in the United States, but it will be launched in other countries “in the coming weeks.”
Additionally, subscribers to ChatGPT Plus, OpenAI’s paid service, will have access to GPT-4 features through this new app. Subscribers using the app will enjoy early access to new features, general access to ChatGPT even during peak hours, faster response times, and other benefits. The OpenAI subscription service costs $20 per month.
Possibly one of the most anticipated news for fans of the popular AI. The launch of ChatGPT on mobile devices was not only a necessary step for OpenAI (as many fake ChatGPT apps took advantage of its absence in app stores), but also a way to ensure greater public access to the AI. Microsoft was quick to recognize this and released the mobile version of their new Bing (powered by GPT-4) in February, although this chatbot does include advertising.
