OpenAI, the AI research company backed by tech giant Microsoft, released the ChatGPT chatbot to the public in November 2022. In February 2023, the company launched its first paid subscription plan, ChatGPT Plus, with premium services including faster response time and priority. access to future updates and developments. The free version still exists, albeit with some delay and other limitations.
ChatGPT iOS app is free for all users and comes without the interruption of ads. It can be assumed that the services of the application will be equivalent to the services offered by the free version of ChatGPT supported by browsers. However, the app’s design resembles that of a messaging service, giving users the impression of having a “chat” like any other messaging app with the AI chatbot.
iOS users can use Apple’s built-in speech recognition feature to dictate text or make use of OpenAI’s open source speech recognition system, Whisper. During an interaction, once the user hits the submit button with their questions or comments, the chatbot processes the request and delivers an AI-generated response. You can also request more information or a different answer in the application. It supports code blocks and allows users to copy and paste responses.
The app saves users’ chat history for model training by default and also allows users to access previous conversations on the desktop. Data sharing with the app can be disabled, but that would also result in unsaved chat history, essentially wiping the slate clean every time users log into the app.
For users with ChatGPT Plus subscriptions, the advanced features of GPT 4 will be accessible through this ChatGPT app. The subscription costs $20 (roughly Rs. 1600) per month. In India, OpenAI has partnered with Stripe to support electronic mandates for recurring payments based on Reserve Bank of India guidelines.
