Just one week after releasing its ChatGPT iOS app in the United States, OpenAI has made it more widely available in India and 32 other nations.
Algeria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estonia, Ghana, India, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, Nauru, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Qatar, Slovenia, Tunisia, and the United Arab Emirates are included on the list of new nations.
After the United States, OpenAI earlier this week added the ChatGPT app to 11 other countries. These include the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Korea, and other European countries like France, Germany, and Ireland.
According to information provided by app intelligence company data.ai, the ChatGPT mobile app has surpassed the milestone of half a million downloads in the first six days since going live in the United States last Thursday (May 18). It is now one of the best-performing new apps thanks to this accomplishment. In terms of downloads since its debut, the app has also surpassed rival AI and chatbot applications as well as Microsoft Edge and Bing applications in the United States, according to data.ai.
Users can communicate with the generative AI-based chatbot using their iPhone by downloading the free ChatGPT app, which does not contain advertisements. Additionally, it enables voice input via OpenAI’s Whisper speech recognition engine and gives ChatGPT Plus users access to GPT-4’s advanced capabilities. Additionally, customers can directly download the iOS app and sign up for the $20 monthly ChatGPT Plus service.
The ChatGPT app is now only available for iOS from OpenAI. However, the Microsoft-backed startup also has an Android version in the works that it has vowed to release shortly. It also has backing from notable VC firms like Tiger Global and a16z.
The growth of the ChatGPT app comes as the CEO of OpenAI Sam Altman travels to numerous nations to strengthen relationships with international politicians and comprehend their concerns about AI. This week, the executive had meetings with a few European heads of state. He’s going to India early next month as well.
