OpenAI, the company behind the increasingly popular ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence chatbot, takes another step in its expansion with the launch of its official mobile application for iOS and also compatible with iPads.
This application can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store, although for the moment it will be available to those in the United States, although the company promises that it will extend the availability of the application to other markets over time. over the next few weeks.
A deployment that will be gradual for mobile devices
In addition, users of Android devices will also have to wait a bit for the official app version for this platform to be on the way as well. And it is not for less because in recent months a multitude of third-party mobile applications have been arriving that make use of the capabilities of the OpenAI models that drive the popular chatbot, although part of the applications that have also been arriving are fraudulent.
Those who already have access to the application on their mobile phones or tablets from the Apple ecosystem will find a similar experience adapted to the format of their screens, although the application also offers the possibility of using voice to establish queries thanks to the integration of OpenAI’s Whisper technology.
The application also offers the synchronization of previous consultations for those who access with the same user account with which they have also accessed the web version, also giving the option to export data, modify the name of past conversations, and more.
ChatGPT Plus subscribers will also be able to access the GPT-4 model and have access to faster responses.
Precautions to keep in mind
Even so, it must be taken into account that ChatGPT continues to be available on an experimental basis, to the point that from the application itself they advise against providing confidential information, and in addition, it is also necessary to continue having the necessary reservations with the responses received to avoid being victims. of so-called hallucinations.
The application will also provide the ability to add the widget to the home page, which will provide more convenience. There is no doubt that its launch will offer guarantees to those who want to use ChatGPT on their mobiles, without having to go through the different Microsoft tools and services through the new Bing.
It is already a matter of waiting for the deployment to be made more widely.
