Renowned AI research lab, OpenAI, has unveiled a free ChatGPT app exclusively for iOS users in the United States. This user-friendly app provides convenient access to the powerful language model, with future plans to expand its availability globally.
Six months after its initial introduction on the online platform, OpenAI’s ChatGPT has made a remarkable impact in the tech industry. The release of ChatGPT sparked a competitive frenzy among companies striving to develop AI tools capable of generating compelling written content and images based on user prompts.
Notably, the launch of the ChatGPT app aligns with OpenAI CEO Sam Altman‘s recent testimony before Congress. Altman emphasized the societal risks associated with AI, comparing the current AI boom to a transformative “printing press moment” that requires prudent safeguards.
The newly introduced app boasts the same capabilities as its web-based counterpart, further solidifying its position as a widely popular chatbot tool. However, the app introduces additional features that enhance the user experience. For instance, users can now employ voice prompts by utilizing their phone’s microphone, instead of solely relying on text input. Moreover, the app enables users to sync their conversation history across multiple devices seamlessly.
OpenAI offers a subscription-based service called ChatGPT Plus alongside the free version. Subscribers pay $20 per month to enjoy exclusive benefits, including access to GPT-4 capabilities, the next-generation version of the underlying technology.
OpenAI has plans to expand the ChatGPT app to Android users in the future. Mira Murati, the company’s Chief Technology Officer, has confirmed that an Android version is currently in development, extending the reach of this influential AI language model.
The release of the ChatGPT app for iOS users exemplifies OpenAI’s commitment to democratizing access to advanced AI technologies. By providing a user-friendly platform, OpenAI aims to empower individuals to harness the power of AI for various applications, such as content creation and personal assistance.
