OpenAI’s AI-powered ChatGPT which has become the go-to tool for millions is now on its way to your smartphone. The San Francisco-based company has announced its ChatGPT app for iOS. The app is currently live in the US and will be rolled out to other countries in the coming weeks. The company claims that the app syncs user history across devices and comes with the latest OpenAI model improvements.
The app for iOS comes with in-built voice input feature owing to the integration of Whisper, OpenAI’s open-source speech-recognition system. Besides, ChatGPT Plus users will get exclusive access to GPT-4’s capabilities, early access to features and faster response times on their iOS devices. The company has said that it will focus on an exclusive app for Android users next.
“With the ChatGPT app for iOS, we’re taking another step towards our mission by transforming state-of-the-art research into useful tools that empower people, while continuously making them more accessible,” the company said in its blog post.
The app users will get access to instant responses that come with precise information without the hindrance caused by ads or multiple results. There is tailored advice for all those seeking advice on travel, DIY, cooking, or craft.
Besides, the new app can come in handy as a great source of creative inspiration. If one runs out of ideas, they simply need to use related prompts and let their imagination take flight. The app can also be of great help to boost productivity at the professional front, especially for assistance with summarisation, feedback, and help with technical topics. ChatGPT on your iPhone can also help you learn new skills, languages and more at your own pace.
Ever since the launch of ChatGPT, millions of users have been eagerly awaiting a dedicated smartphone app. Now that OpenAI has introduced its official app, the start-up has taken a giant leap forward in the AI race. As of now there are 6.92 billion smartphone users around the world as per statista.com. This means that nearly 86 per cent of smartphone users will now have access to the wonders of the AI-powered chatbot.
ChatGPT, launched in November 2022, has been making waves on the internet for offering the most human-like responses. Developers have been experimenting with new use cases with each passing day. The phenomenal success of the chatbot has also triggered an AI arms race between tech giants including Google, Meta and Microsoft.
