Thanks to OpenAI, more people than ever before will be able to use ChatGPT.
On Thursday, OpenAI announced the release of the ChatGPT app for iOS in the United States at no cost, with international availability coming soon.
Six months have passed since OpenAI initially made GPT available to the public online. Technology companies have been in an “AI arms race” ever since the release of software that can automatically generate engaging text and visual content in response to user input.
In the same week, OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman spoke before Congress about the dangers posed by artificial intelligence, calling the present AI boom a possible “printing press moment” but adding that it needed safeguards.
The new ChatGPT app is a mobile version of the famous web-based chatbot application, and it has the potential to increase its user base. Not only can users type in commands, but they can also speak them into the app’s microphone. The user’s history can be synchronized across all of their devices.
The next iteration of the technology powering ChatGPT is called GPT-4, and it is available to subscribers who pay an additional $20 per month for ChatGPT Plus.
