OpenAI’s ChatGPT has officially landed on Android. Initially available in the USA, India, Bangladesh, and Brazil, the app is set to roll out in other countries soon. The ChatGPT Android app follows the successful launch of the iOS version in May 2023.
One of the standout features of the ChatGPT app is its ability to synchronize across multiple devices. This means you can start a conversation on your tablet and seamlessly continue on your smartphone. Plus subscribers have the added advantage of switching between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 on their devices. To enjoy these features, all you need is a smartphone running Android 6.0 or a higher version. The current version of the official Android app is 1.0.0022.
When comparing the browser and Android versions of ChatGPT, the differences are minimal. Users familiar with the browser version will find the Android app intuitive and easy to navigate. The voice recognition feature works smoothly, even with soft-spoken users, and the app is free from intrusive advertisements.
However, finding the app in the Play Store can be a bit tricky due to the plethora of AI programs available. To find the official ChatGPT app, it’s recommended to search for OpenAI in the Play Store.
Once you open the app, you’ll see your previous interactions with ChatGPT from the browser version. The usual reminders about the use of AI are present, including warnings about the potential for misinformation and advice against sharing confidential information.
The synchronization between the browser and Android versions works well, with queries entered on one platform appearing on the other. However, for seamless synchronization, it’s necessary to refresh the browser page or log out and back into the Android app.
