OpenAI on Thursday launched an application of its popular artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, ChatGPT, for iOS in the US and said it will "soon" announce it for Android devices as well.

This app responds to voice prompts, syncs the history that users have had from other devices and is free, although ChatGPT Plus subscribers have exclusive access to the capabilities of GPT-4, the latest version of the company's generative AI.

Unlike the web system, this application features Whisper, OpenAI's open-source speech recognition system, which allows voice input.

"With the ChatGPT app for iOS, we're taking another step toward our mission by transforming cutting-edge research into useful tools that empower people, while making them more accessible," the company said in a statement.

For now, the app works on both iPhone and iPad in the United States, but OpenAI will expand to other countries "in the coming weeks."

ChatGPT was released to the public last November and soon gained great popularity. According to some specialized media, the chatbot attracted 100 million users, although OpenAI never confirmed these figures.

This year Microsoft invested in OpenAI and began collaborating with the company: Microsoft's AI chatbot, Bing, is powered by GPT-4 and Dall-e technology, both developed by OpenAI.
