OpenAI Inc, a research lab that focuses on (AI), announced the launch of an iOS version of the ChatGPT app. According to the company, the app will next be available on . It will first be rolled out to users in the United States, with other countries to be added in the coming weeks.

As OpenAI noted, the ChatGPT app is free to use. Its features include synchronization of user history across devices as well as integration with Whisper – an open-source speech recognition system that allows voice input. The app is also ad-free. In addition, those with a ChatGPT Plus subscription receive exclusive access to GPT-4 features, early access to features and faster response times.

ChatGPT Plus is a special offer that was introduced in February 2023. For $20 per month, it offers enhanced features, such as faster response times, early access to new features and enhancements, and the ability to use ChatGPT even during peak hours.

The launch of the ChatGPT app is an expected move, given the buzz around the chatbot introduced by OpenAI in November 2022. Initially, the chatbot was an experiment of sorts. However, its popularity grew, and ChatGPT's user base quickly expanded. Currently, ChatGPT has over 100 million users. The ChatGPT website generates 1.8 billion visitors per month. This figure was reached in the space of three months, from February to April 2023. Because of this growth, the need for a ChatGPT app became apparent.

Previously, one of the easiest ways to access OpenAI's software on a mobile device was through Microsoft's Bing app, which provides access to ChatGPT. Now, with the app, using the chatbot will be easier and faster.

According to the ChatGPT team, the application will be improved based on user feedback, and more features will be added later.

The first rumors about OpenAI launching the ChatGPT app appeared in February. It was also reported that the company was working on a new software that would create videos with the help of artificial intelligence. Earlier this week, we also reported that ChatGPT was preparing to release a new open-source language model.

ChatGPT leaves competitors behind

The ChatGPT mobile app comes at a time when major technology players, including LLC and Platforms Inc (NASDAQ: META), are experimenting with artificial intelligence. For example, Google is building AI capabilities into its search engine. Its Bard uses Google's LaMDA language model. Launched in 2021, Google LaMDA is considered one of the main competitors of ChatGPT. LaMDA is capable of understanding complex queries and discussions on a wide range of topics. It has been perfected through the use of 1.56 trillion words and a whopping 137 billion parameters.

As AI research continues to grow, many are betting on ChatGPT, believing that it trumps its competitors. The main advantages offered by ChatGPT are the free and paid access options, as well as the collection of user feedback to improve the chatbot's functionality. As a result, ChatGPT has secured a significant competitive advantage in the AI market, leaving its competitors struggling to stay in the race.
