Many people will now find it much simpler to access ChatGPT, thanks to OpenAI’s new announcement. With intentions to eventually expand to additional nations, OpenAI on Thursday announced the release of the free ChatGPT app for iOS users in the United States.
The viral chatbot tool’s features are carried over to the new ChatGPT app, which could increase its appeal. Instead of just typing out prompts, users will be able to speak to the app using their phone’s microphone. Additionally, users can sync their history between devices. “The ChatGPT app syncs conversations, supports voice input, and brings the latest model improvements to one’s fingertips,” according to the blog.
ChatGPT Plus subscribers receive more features on the app, including access to GPT-4 capabilities, the newest iteration of the technology that powers the application, for $20 per month. The next release from OpenAI will be on Android, according to the CTO Mira Murati.
Six months have passed since OpenAI initially made ChatGPT available to the public online. The release spurred an immediate new AI arms race in the IT sector to create and implement systems that can produce engaging written content and pictures in response to user suggestions.
Recently, Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, spoke before Congress about the dangers that AI may bring to society. He called the present surge in the field a possible “printing press moment” but warned that it also required safeguards.
