OpenAI’s ChatGPT App Expands Its Reach to 11 New Countries 🌍

In a recent tweet, OpenAI revealed that its official ChatGPT mobile application is expanding to a host of new territories.

It’s pretty interesting how ChatGPT took off. After it was first introduced to the public through a web version last year, it really picked up speed – faster than big names like Instagram and TikTok! Would you believe that it bagged a cool 100 million users just within two months of being released? Now, that’s something!

But here’s the thing – while people could use it on their smartphones via the web version, it wasn’t always a smooth ride.

Initially launched exclusively in the U.S. for iOS users, the app now extends its availability to several countries in Europe, South Korea, New Zealand, and more.

ChatGPT, a free and ad-free app, provides users with the experience of interacting directly with the famed AI chatbot. The interface is simple and user-friendly, mirroring the common dynamics of instant messaging apps.

ChatGPT App Expands Its Reach in Countries Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Jamaica, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, South Korea, the U.K., and the U.S. The app is currently iOS exclusive, but OpenAI reassures its users that an Android version is on its way.

The company mentioned that the app would continue its global rollout in the near future, potentially including India, where the AI-powered chatbot has been gaining popularity.

The availability of the ChatGPT app in these new countries will greatly benefit users who seek on-the-go access to information. The chatbot supports multiple languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

How does the user experience shape up on the app?

Upon opening the app, users are welcomed by a textbox at the screen’s base, ready to receive their queries.
Inputs can be typed or dictated using either Apple’s built-in speech recognition feature or OpenAI’s open-source speech recognition system, Whisper.
After sending a message, users receive AI-generated responses, which can be further engaged with, creating a conversational flow.

By default, the ChatGPT app retains chat history, contributing to model training. However, it’s important to note that data sharing cannot be switched off without also disabling chat history.

For ChatGPT Plus subscribers, a $20 monthly fee grants access to the superior capabilities of GPT-4 through the mobile app.

Users can also anticipate quicker response times with the subscription. The ChatGPT Plus subscription is also available as an in-app purchase, priced relative to local currency rates (€22.99 per month in Europe, £19.99 in the U.K., etc.).

This expansion comes at a notable time as OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, is set to meet with several European heads of state, including Emmanuel Macron of France, Pedro Sánchez of Spain, and Rishi Sunak of the U.K.

Altman, who has previously criticized rushed AI regulatory policy, is poised to make ChatGPT more accessible in Europe.

Now, it’s as easy as saying, “Just download the app.”

The ChatGPT app provides the same high-performance capabilities as its web counterpart, enabling users to receive conversational responses to complex queries. It can assist with tasks such as editing lengthy articles, reviewing app codes, and solving math problems.
