OpenAI has announced the launch of its ChatGPT app for Android users, following its successful release on iOS in May. The Android version of the popular AI chatbot will come with improved security measures and features such as conversation history synchronisation across devices. The company has also provided a preorder page in the Google Play Store, allowing users to register for installation once the app is ready.
This move by OpenAI puts it in direct competition with Microsoft’s Bing Chat, which also uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology. The introduction of Android and iOS apps offers an alternative means for users to access large language models without relying on web browsers.

While OpenAI continues to enhance the safety and transparency of its tools, the AI community has seen emerging competitors like Anthropic’s Claude 2 assistant, which offers functionalities surpassing OpenAI’s paid version of ChatGPT. Nonetheless, ChatGPT remains widely embraced by the crypto community, with some utilizing the technology to develop new tokens.
The expansion to Android marks a significant step for OpenAI in widening access to its language model and providing users with a more seamless chatbot experience across different platforms.
