Over 100 million weekly active users are asking “Does ChatGPT have an app?”. Here’s where to get a convenient and self-contained AI chatbot on your iOS or Android device.

Does ChatGPT have an app?

Yes, ChatGPT has an app for iOS and Android.

You can use ChatGPT on any mobile device either via the app or by heading to the ChatGPT website on a mobile web browser like Google Chrome. In some situations, using ChatGPT via a mobile web browser is more convenient than having to download a service before using it. However, the GPT-4 model comes with more functionality than the website version. You can also use ChatGPT on desktop PC or Mac devices, but only via a web browser.

The convenience of a single icon to tap from your home screen is ultimately a better user experience, and worth the download. An official ChatGPT App comes with a less cluttered UI without the mobile browser UI on top.

Where can you pre-register for the ChatGPT Android App?

While the browser-based AI chatbot provides synchronicity across all devices (great!) they really aren’t where we’re going to make the most of artificial intelligence (boo!). ChatGPT Plus and, more recently, ChatGPT Enterprise, are evidence of OpenAI pushing to bring new functionality to the platform. Paying subscribers already have access to the latest version of ChatGPT, with GPT-4’s capabilities far outperforming the GPT-3.5 available to free users. Thankfully, all users can make use of Whisper, the “open-source speech-recognition system, enabling voice input” developed by OpenAI themselves.

There are multiple reasons why originally browser-based services create their own smartphone app. It pays to have control over your connection to your users. Shortcuts are named so for a reason. Websites are bound by the restrictions of the web browsers they exist within, whereas an official app would be limited only by the operating system. Speaking of operating systems…

Does ChatGPT have an Android app?

Yes! You can download the official ChatGPT Android app here. Be careful to only download the app published by OpenAI.

On the 25th July 2023, I noticed the following message on the Google Play Store.

Clicking “Install” at this time would have pre-registered your download of OpenAI’s mobile app. This means that the app will download to your phone automatically now that it’s available on the Google Play Store.

It has landed in the United States and UK first, before rolling out to additional countries similar to their iOS roll-out.

Does ChatGPT have an iOS app?

Yes, you can get ChatGPT on your iPhone. Originally published on the Apple App Store on Thursday 18th May 2023, iPhone users have enjoyed access for months, while Android users have been limited to the web version.

If you’re still looking for other large language models (LLM), and alternatives to the ChatGPT web app, try Google Bard, or Bing Chat on any desktop or mobile browser.

Yes, ChatGPT has had an Android App since Wednesday, July 26th, 2023.

Is ChatGPT on iOS?

Yes, ChatGPT has had an iOS App since Thursday, May 18th, 2023.

Can you pre-register for the ChatGPT Android App?

No, the official ChatGPT app for Android is now live. There is no need to pre-register, simply download it now.
