The release of the app is planned soon. Pre-registration is now possible in the Google Play Store.
The Google Play Store allows app developers like OpenAI to build anticipation for an app’s launch by pre-registering three to six weeks before the launch date.
ChatGPT Android App Features
The official ChatGPT Android app is designed to provide users with a suite of features that leverage the power of OpenAI’s cutting-edge AI capabilities.
The free app enables user history synchronization across multiple devices and provides users with the latest OpenAI model improvements.
The ChatGPT Android app aims to revolutionize the way users interact with AI by providing instant answers, tailored advice and creative inspiration at the touch of a button.
In addition, it promises learning opportunities and provides professional input in various fields.
OpenAI app data collection
As an integral part of its app launch, OpenAI has addressed data security concerns by detailing how it collects, shares, and processes user data.
In the app’s data security information, OpenAI emphasized that the ChatGPT Android app does not share user data with third parties.
According to reports, the application collects multiple types of data. This includes an approximate location, the user’s name, email address, phone number, and details of in-app messages and user interactions.
App performance information such as crash logs and diagnostic data is also collected.
OpenAI has outlined the privacy practices that the ChatGPT app follows. This includes data encryption during transmission to ensure secure data transmission. In addition, OpenAI provides users with a way to request deletion of data.
The ChatGPT app and future AI developments from Apple and Google
OpenAI wants to delight millions of users worldwide with this release, with the ChatGPT app already attracting a lot of attention.
Over 10.6k users of the ChatGPT app on the App Store gave it an average of 4.4 stars out of five. The top charts show it to be one of the top five productivity apps for iPhone.
It is possibly one of the most popular AI chatbots right now. But what happens when Apple develops generative AI that gets built into its operating system?
Will people keep downloading apps like ChatGPT if effective AI is built into their devices at launch? It will likely depend on which company has the most reliable and accurate AI tool.
