Since its launch in November, OpenAI’s ChatGPT tool has attracted an impressive number of users, rivaling Threads’ expansion. The business now declares that it is prepared to introduce an Android application.
A few months have passed since the free iOS version of the ChatGPT app for iPhones and iPads was released.
Next week will see the release of ChatGPT for Android, according to a tweet from OpenAI, though the exact date was not given. Additionally, it contained a link to a Google Play Store pre-order page where users could sign up to receive the app once it became available.

The business promised to release an Android version soon after the iOS version of ChatGPT launched in May, and it has now done so.
While ChatGPT users must wait to use an app for Google’s Bard chatbot because it lacks dedicated mobile apps and only has a web-based interface, they can use Microsoft’s Bing app instead. Using its Prometheus Model and GPT-4, this has been accessible on both Android and iOS platforms since February.
According to data from Sensor Tower and Similarweb, web traffic, and app installations decreased in June, which is against the backdrop of this release. Additionally, some users have recently complained that GPT-4’s performance is getting “slower and dumber”.
This complaint was addressed by OpenAI earlier this week, who assured that the APIs are constantly being updated.
