The official ChatGPT smartphone app is now accessible in more countries, according to a tweet from OpenAI. The OpenAI mobile app was only accessible in the United States and on iOS when it was first released last week. Now that the program is available on the program Store, many people living in Europe, South Korea, New Zealand, and other places will be able to download it.
The ChatGPT app is available for free and is ad-free. Since ChatGPT is essentially just a mechanism to communicate with the chatbot, anyone who is already familiar with it will feel out of place.
The complete list of nations where the ChatGPT is now offered is provided below South Korea, the U.K., the U.S., Jamaica, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, France, Germany, Ireland, Albania, Croatia, and other countries. Once more, the app is now only accessible on iOS. OpenAI also stated in its initial release that an Android app would be “coming soon.”
You can begin entering text in the text box at the bottom of the screen as soon as the app is launched. It functions exactly like sending a message through a messenger program. Whisper, an open-source speech recognition system from OpenAI, can be used in addition to Apple’s built-in speech recognition feature for text dictation.
Once you press the “send” button, OpenAI analyses your query and provides an AI-generated response. You can ask for a different response or follow up with more details. Users of the program can copy and paste solutions, and it supports code blocks.
Your chat history is automatically saved by ChatGPT, which utilizes it to train models. You will also be able to locate your discussions on your desktop when this option is activated. It’s important to note that you cannot prevent data sharing without also removing conversation history.
You can use the mobile app to access GPT-4’s features if you have a ChatGPT Plus subscription. Additionally, users should observe quicker response times. ChatGPT Plus is available as an in-app purchase for your local currency and costs $20 a month on a desktop (€22.99 in Europe, £19.99 in the U.K., etc.).
This expansion’s timing is particularly interesting because OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman is meeting this week with many European heads of state, including Emmanuel Macron of France, Pedro Sánchez of Spain, and Rishi Sunak of the United Kingdom. Altman has voiced disapproval of hastily formulated AI regulatory regulation. And now that individuals can say “Just download the app,” ChatGPT will be considerably more accessible across Europe.
