ChatGPT aims to achieve its universalization with its first official application for smartphones. Specifically, it is available for iOS. Thus, it can be accessed more easily. The announcement comes six months after OpenAI first unveiled ChatGPT to the public. 

Currently, the ChatGPT app is only available for download in the United States. However, they will be expanding to other countries in the coming weeks. Users residing in the U.S. will be able to access the App Store and download it for free. 

Thanks to using the account in the application, the conversation history between devices will be synchronized. It will also integrate Whisper, its open-source speech recognition system, which enables voice input. Otherwise, the official ChatGPT app will be completely free with the GPT-3.5 engine. As with the web version, there is also the option to subscribe to ChatGPT Plus to get faster responses, early access to features, and use the more powerful GPT-4 version.

The idea is that this first release will allow them to gather feedback from North American users for continuous application improvement before launching it in other regions.

ChatGPT functionalities for iOS

The new ChatGPT iPhone app will have added functionalities to make using AI in a mobile environment easier and faster than ever. The idea for OpenAI and Microsoft is to capture the Google internet browser global market, turning ChatGPT - or similar solutions - into the new way people search for information or content online. 

The features of the ChatGPT iPhone app are:

  • Instant answers: accurate information without sifting through ads or multiple results.
  • Advice: if you need information on topics such as cooking, travel or thoughtful messages for your private conversations.
  • Creative inspiration: generate gift ideas, sketch presentations or write the perfect poem.
  • Professional intervention: increase productivity with idea feedback, note summarization, and technical assistance on topics.
  • Learning: the chatbot can become your learning guide on various topics and disciplines.

ChatGPT European issues 

Meanwhile, ChatGPT has set itself up for a rough ride with Europe's powerful privacy watchdogs.

The chatbot is the hottest sensation of artificial intelligence technology but was hit with a temporary ban in Italy last month because it could violate Europe's privacy rulebook, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The Italian ban is just the start of ChatGPT's troubles, as it opened itself up to privacy cases across the bloc and is running cutting-edge technology that's irking governments over risks ranging from data protection to misinformation, cybercrime, fraud, and cheating on school tests.
