Following the release of the iOS version in May, OpenAI has published a dedicated ChatGPT app for Android users which is now available in four countries.
The ChatGPT for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store, following the free iOS app that brought the chatbot to iPhones and iPads a few months ago. According to a company tweet, it will be available first in the United States, India, Bangladesh, and Brazil, with other countries to follow later, similar to how the iOS version was released in stages.
As we reported last week, the release of an Android app comes after Sensor Tower and Similarweb statistics revealed declines in web traffic and app installations in June.
Until Threads emerged, ChatGPT was the poster child for exponential success, and it’s uncertain whether the buzz will continue or if it has reached a plateau.
The GPT-4 model used by OpenAI also drives the Bing AI chatbot, which has been accessible on Android for some months, but Google’s Bard AI only has a web interface and no dedicated app. While many tech companies are releasing AI-powered tools for mobile apps, Apple has yet to release its own chatbot, but according to a recent Bloomberg article, the company is already developing one internally.
