ChatGPT app for android will be rolling out to users next week, (AFP)

OpenAI's artificial intelligence-powered chatbot, ChatGPT, is all set to expand its reach to Android devices. The announcement was made by the Microsoft-backed creator, OpenAI, through a tweet on their official Twitter account. The company revealed that the ChatGPT app will be rolling out to Android users starting next week, and interested individuals can sign-up on the Google Play Store, with pre-orders already open.

This release follows the successful launch of the popular chatbot for iOS users several months ago. In a blog post in May, OpenAI said, "The ChatGPT app synchronizes your conversations, supports voice input, and brings our latest model improvements to your fingertips."

The Android version is expected to be available to users free of charge. Interested users can register on the pre-order page in the Google Play Store to receive the app once it is rolled out.

In terms of competition, Google's bot, Bard, does not currently offer a mobile app. On the other hand, Microsoft's Bing has been available on Android and iOS platforms since February.

ChatGPT, which was launched last year, caused a sensation in the field of AI. Its ability to perform tasks such as writing articles, creating presentations, composing poems, and even crafting film scripts made it immensely popular among users. However, in recent months, both its mobile and desktop traffic have experienced a decline.

According to internet data firm Similarweb, ChatGPT's mobile and desktop traffic decreased by 9.7 per cent in June. Sensor Tower also reported a drop in downloads for the bot's iPhone version.

The decrease in usage can be attributed to the limitations of the chatbot and some of the initial hype surrounding it, which led users to reevaluate its effectiveness. In fact, many users have complained that the bot has increasingly become dumber.

In this situation, the Android release will help AI to get back into the headlines and grab back the spotlight that it has lost to the likes of Microsoft and Google.
