There has been an official app for ChatGPT on iPhones for a while now. Now Siri can also communicate with the bot.
ChatGPT has been called an official iOS app for several weeks now. This allows users to chat with the popular chatbot directly from their phone. A new update now further expands the app’s capabilities.
For example, there will be support for Assignments. This allows you to save prompts after the update, so that you don’t always have to type everything out. In the assignment you can also determine what should happen with the output that ChatGPT gives: make a note or share it with someone in a message? With the new update, all you have to do is indicate it in the Assignments app.
Those who use the ChatGPT app on the iPad will also receive improvements. For example, the app is now finally available in a form that is aimed at iPada. Previously, it was an iPhone app that was projected on the screen of the iPad. That has now been done away with: you can now also speak smoothly with the chatbot on a larger screen.
Why you should stay away from unofficial ChatGPT apps
Finally, OpenAI also builds support for Siri into the app. In other words: you no longer have to lift a finger to get something done from the chatbot. You can simply ask Siri and ChatGPT will take care of it for you.
One thing is clear: OpenAI prefers iOS. The ChatGPT app has been available there for 3 weeks. The fact that the app is now being updated before an official Android client is available raises the question of how long it will take for Android. Those who search for ‘ChatGPT’ in the Google Play Store for now will only find unofficial apps and an app for Bing, from Microsoft.
