More iOS users can now download and use the dedicated ChatGPT app, thanks to its recent expansion to more than 30 countries.
Earlier this week, it was released to Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Jamaica, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, South Korea, and the UK. OpenAI is now expanding this listing by including Algeria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Estonia, Ghana, India, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, Nauru, Oman, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Qatar, Slovenia, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
The app was first launched in the US but already made a success within its first week of launch despite being only available in the Apple App Store. According to app intelligence provider data.ai, the first five-day downloading period of the ChatGPT app for iOS accumulated 480,000 installs. As we noted in our last report, this is more than what Bing and Edge received during the launch of their revamped versions on iOS and Android platforms.
The number is expected to grow as the app reaches more markets. According to OpenAI, it will also soon offer the app to Android users. This should deter the public from trying out different suspicious AI apps claiming to have ChatGPT capabilities (and even using the exact terms “ChatGPT” or “GPT-4” in their listings) but are actually laced with malware.
