The well-liked OpenAI chatbot with AI support, ChatGPT, is now accessible on iOS.
According to the creator, users will be able to sync their chat histories across devices via the chatbot’s official mobile app, which can be downloaded on iOS. Additionally, voice input will be supported by the app, making smartphone use simpler. Customers of ChatGPT Plus will now have access to OpenAI’s sophisticated GPT-4 big language model, which provides faster and more current results than the free version.
In a blog post published on Thursday, OpenAI announced the release of the ChatGPT app for iOS devices, noting that it would be available in the US first. The chatbot developer announced in a blog post that ChatGPT for Android devices will be released “soon” and that it will be extended to additional nations in the upcoming weeks.
Just hours after its launch, the official ChatGPT app for iOS is currently at the top of the productivity list in the US App Store. The App Store description states that the app is only compatible with iPhones and that iOS 16.1 or later is needed. Additionally, a $19.99 in-app purchase for a monthly subscription to ChatGPT Plus is available. It is currently unavailable to download in other regions, including India.
Months after the program was made available to the general public for testing in November of last year, ChatGPT has finally made it to iOS devices. Application programming interfaces (APIs) were used by a number of different smartphone apps that included the well-known chatbot, as well as by apps made for the Apple Watch and Wear OS-enabled smartwatches.
It’s important to note that OpenAI warns users who download the program that the AI-based chatbot “can be inaccurate” when it comes to specifics like facts, locations, or persons. Likewise, it cautions users against providing any private information to the service because, even though discussions are anonymized, OpenAI AI trainers may still check them.
While iPhone owners in India will have to wait until the ChatGPT app is rolled out to regions outside the US, there’s no word on when Android users will be able to try out the official app — even in the US. Rival Google recently opened up early access to its Bard chatbot, while users can also download the Microsoft Bing app to access a chatbot that is based on OpenAI’s GPT-4 large language model.
