Android users now have access to the official ChatGPT app, developed by OpenAI. Following its announcement last week, the app has been released on the Google Play store, allowing users to download it for free. Initially available in the U.S., India, Bangladesh, and Brazil, the app will expand its availability to other countries in the coming week.
The ChatGPT app offers the same experience as the website and iOS version. Users can type their requests and ask follow-up questions, or use the microphone icon to speak their queries, which are then transcribed into text. The app also includes a feature to track chat history across devices, allowing users to access previous conversations and search for specific ones by keyword.
Subscribers of ChatGPT Plus can choose between the GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 modes, each providing advantages such as improved training, longer memory, and multilingual proficiency. The app also offers settings options, allowing users to export their chat data, clear chat history, change the color scheme, switch the default language, and access help information.
While there are several third-party apps available for iOS and Android utilizing OpenAI’s ChatGPT model, many of them require subscriptions for full usage. However, OpenAI’s official apps are completely free, providing unlimited access to chat capabilities.
The release of the ChatGPT app for Android expands the accessibility of AI-infused assistance to a wider range of users. With its intuitive interface and convenient features, Android users can now enjoy the benefits of the ChatGPT app on their phones and tablets, joining iPhone, iPad, and web users in leveraging AI-powered chat functionality.
