OpenAI launched yesterday (May 18) the ChatGPT app for iOS, a new tool designed to enhance your chatting experience by syncing your conversations, enabling voice input, and delivering the most recent updates from the ChatGPT model​.

ChatGPT, since its inception, has been embraced by users for its mobility and convenience. In response to its growing popularity, OpenAI has developed and released a dedicated app for iOS users. An Android version has been announced to come “soon”.

This app, available at no cost, maintains a record of your chat history across all your devices. A key feature is its integration with Whisper, OpenAI’s very own open-source speech recognition system, allowing for voice commands. Furthermore, those subscribed to ChatGPT Plus can access the advanced features of GPT-4, receive early access to updates, and benefit from faster response times, all on their iOS devices​.

The versatility of the ChatGPT app is noteworthy:

  • Instant answers: Users can obtain precise information without having to sort through advertisements or multiple search results.
  • Tailored advice: The app can provide guidance on various topics, from cooking and travel plans to drafting thoughtful messages.
  • Creative inspiration: The app can help generate gift ideas, assist in outlining presentations, or even aid in writing the perfect poem.
  • Professional input: It can increase productivity with idea feedback, note summarisation, and assistance on technical topics.
  • Learning opportunities: It offers the chance to learn new languages, explore modern history, and more, all at your own pace​.

OpenAI has begun the rollout of the ChatGPT app in the US and plans to extend its availability to more countries in the upcoming weeks. They are keen to learn about the various ways in which users interact with the app, and they are committed to continuous development in terms of features and safety measures based on user feedback​.

With the launch of the ChatGPT app for iOS, OpenAI continues its journey towards its mission of converting cutting-edge research into practical tools that empower people and augment accessibility​.

And for Android users, there’s good news on the horizon! OpenAI has announced that the ChatGPT app will soon be available for Android devices as well​.

We are waiting for the launch in Europe!
