This app also works with the generative AI-based chatbot using voice input through OpenAI’s speech recognition system, Whisper.

Issues with Overheating and Battery Drain

While the ChatGPT app has been well – received by users, some in India have reported issues. They claim that their phones are overheating and their battery life is draining quickly when the app is in use. At the moment, it is unclear what is causing these issues. However, it is possible that the app’s use of voice input and OpenAI’s speech recognition system, Whisper, may be contributing factors.

It is also possible that the app’s compatibility with older iPhone models may be causing the issues. The app has a limit to phones that can run the iOS 16.1 operating system. This means iPhone 8 or newer hardware models.

High Downloads and Popularity

The ChatGPT app has been a huge success since its launch. It has over half a million downloads in the first six days of its availability in the US. The app has outperformed other AI and chatbot apps, as well as Microsoft Edge and Bing apps in terms of downloads since its launch.

The app’s popularity can be attributed to its free-to-use model, which allows users to interact with the chatbot without any subscription fees. However, users can subscribe to the ChatGPT Plus service. The service costs $20 per month in the US, directly through the iOS app.

Conclusion

The ChatGPT app for iOS has been a huge success since its launch, with over half a million downloads in the first six days of its availability in the US. The app is free to use and allows users to interact with the generative AI chatbot using voice input through OpenAI’s speech recognition system, Whisper. However, some users in India have reported issues with their phones overheating and battery life draining quickly while using the app.

It is unclear what is causing these issues, but it is possible that the app’s use of voice input and compatibility with older iPhone models may be contributing factors. Despite these issues, the ChatGPT app remains a popular and innovative way to interact with AI-based chatbots.
