Have you ever wondered why you can’t find a ChatGPT app in the App or Play store? That’s because there hasn’t been an official mobile app yet. But that has now changed.
OpenAI has now officially released an app for iOS devices, bucking the flood of third-party apps. At first, the app was only released in the US. It is now available in eleven other countries, including Germany.
Other countries include Albania, France, Ireland, Jamaica, Croatia, Korea, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
What’s in the app?
As you have probably already guessed, the app hardly differs from the desktop version. You can still start multiple chats and access them later. This is also possible across multiple platforms.
There will also be an option for ChatGPT Plus users to switch between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4.
The only real innovation is the integrated voice input that works with OpenAI’s whisper recognition. This allows you to enter prompts with your voice.
Are there any disadvantages?
While the desktop and mobile versions aren’t very different, there is one small downside to the app. Some plugins are not available. For example, that for real-time Internet access.
ChatGPT app for Android devices?
OpenAI gives the all-clear for all Android users who feel left out. Apparently, a corresponding app for this operating system is also being worked on. The OpenAI contribution to Android users says:
