The internet is pretty much run by ChatGPT, an AI robot. It’s true what everyone says. With ChatGPT, you can do cool things like write quick blog posts or code like a machine. But this AI robot has a big problem: you can only use it on computers through its website.
So, if you want to use ChatGPT on your Android or iOS phone, we’ve got you covered. This guide will show you how to use ChatGPT on your iPhone or Android phone. So, let’s not waste any more time and get going.

OpenAI Launches Free ChatGPT App for iOS
OpenAI has put out ChatGPT app for iOS and said that an app for Android will be ready “soon.” The app is free to use, and it syncs your chat information with the web. Whisper is an open-source speech recognition model from OpenAI that lets you send texts by speaking.
The app can be downloaded from the App Store. Both iPhones and iPads can use it. OpenAI says that the app will first be available in the US and then in other countries “in the coming weeks.”
OpenAI didn’t say there would be a mobile app before, but it makes sense since ChatGPT is so popular. People began using the AI helper as soon as it came out in November. Some outside sources say that by January of this year, the app had 100 million users, but OpenAI has never confirmed this amount.
It’s interesting that the app is being released at a time when OpenAI doesn’t know where to sell ChatGPT. Even though the chatbot started as an experiment, it quickly found a customer audience that uses it for everything from cheating on college papers to business apps.
In February, OpenAI released ChatGPT Plus, a paid version of the app that gives users priority access and comments made with the company’s latest language model, GPT-4. Each month, it costs $20.
Up until now, the best way to use OpenAI’s language models on a mobile device was to use Microsoft’s Bing app, which gave you access to the company’s GPT-4-powered computer.
People have been able to use Microsoft’s computer to get them to use Bing and Edge. If ChatGPT makes an official app, it’s possible that some of these people will use that instead. With the start of an official ChatGPT, people should also stop signing up for spam and fake apps that claim to let them talk to the robot on their phones.
Of course, ChatGPT has the same problems on mobile devices as it does on the computer. These include worries about privacy and the fact that the bot is likely to make up information and be sure of it. OpenAI just gave users the choice to make talks private, and the app’s home screen still tells users not to share “sensitive info” on the app.
How to get Android and iOS to work with ChatGPT?
There are a few things you need to know before you can use this AI robot on your phone. Quickly go over them to make sure you have these things in place before going on.
1. Account on OpenAI
The company OpenAI makes ChatGPT, and to use it, you need an OpenAI account. Setting up an OpenAI account is free and easy. Just go to ChatGPT’s website and quickly create an account. You will need to give a real phone number as part of the proof process. After that, keep following the instructions. You can also sign up for the service on your phone.
2. A Browser for the Internet
Even though it seems simple, ChatGPT only works if you have a fully updated browser. On Android, you can use Google Chrome, and on iOS, you can use Safari. But you can use any browser you like because they should all work the same. You can also switch to Chrome if you’re having trouble.
How to use ChatGPT on an iPhone or an Android?
Now that everything is taken care of, let’s set up ChatGPT on your phone. Whether you have an iPhone or an Android phone, the steps for iOS are the same. So, just do what it says:
1. Open one of your phone’s web browsers. Like Google Chrome. In the address bar, type chat.openai.com to go to the main ChatGPT page.
2. Then, tap “Try ChatGPT” at the top or scroll down and tap the same-named button. You might not see this screen and move on to the next step right away.
3. When you go to the site for the first time, you probably won’t be signed in. So, click the button here that says Sign In. Tap Continue after entering your email address and password.
4. Now, you’ll see a short warning about the tool. To use the ChatGPT AI robot, you need to tap “Next” and then “Done.”
5. And you are all done! You can now use your phone to go to the ChatGPT website and talk to the AI bot about anything.
OpenAI announced Thursday that iOS users in the US can now get the ChatGPT app for free. People from other countries will soon be able to use the app as well. OpenAI let everyone use ChatGPT for the first time six months before the start.
The release quickly started a new AI arms race in the tech industry to make and use tools that can create interesting written work and pictures in response to user instructions. It also happens the same week that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman told Congress about the risks that AI could bring to society.
He said that the recent rise of AI was like a “printing press moment” that needed to be stopped. The web version of the robot tool has the same features as the new ChatGPT app, which could help it become even more popular. Users of the app will be able to send voice notes as well as text messages.
Different systems can also share the user’s information. People who pay $20 a month for ChatGPT Plus will get extra features on the app, such as access to GPT-4, the next generation of technology that makes the tool work. Mira Murati, who is in charge of technology at OpenAI, says that the next version will be for Android.
