ChatGPT is coming to mobile and will be an iPhone app

OpenAI launched tonight (Thursday) for Apple’s operating system, iOS, GPT chat And she promises – “soon” it will also come to Android. The GPT chat app will be available for free use and will synchronize the chat history to the network, including a speech recognition system, supported by An OpenAI open source recognition model.

The application, which works on both iPhone and iPad, can be downloaded – but only in the US for now. The company decided to launch the application there first, which will expand to other countries “in the coming weeks”, as it said.

OpenAI has not previously hinted at the mobile app, but the move makes sense given the popularity of GPT Chat, launched last November and since then its usage continues to rise. External estimates suggest the app attracted 100 million users by January of this year, though OpenAI has never confirmed that figure.

Although GPT Chat was initially launched as an experiment, it soon found an audience of consumers who use it for everything from academic cheating to business applications. In February, OpenAI launched a premium subscription to the app, which offers priority for comments and approaches generated using the company’s latest language model, GPT-4, for $20 a month.

Until now, the best way to use OpenAI’s language models on mobile was in Microsoft’s Bing browser. Microsoft offers access to GPT chat, powered by GPT-4, and an official app will likely alienate some of the company’s users, which used the access it provided to attract people to its browsers, Microsoft Edge and Bing.

The official launch of the app is aimed at preventing people from signing up to spam and fake apps that claim to offer mobile access to GPT chat, which is not without issues – even on mobile. For example, the tendency of the bot to come up with information in full confidence and privacy concerns; The company only recently gave its users the option to make conversations private, but the app’s home screen still warns them not to share “sensitive information” on it.
