While there’s still no news on an Android version, OpenAI’s iOS ChatGPT app is now available in 30 additional countries, just a week after it initially launched the app for users in the US on May 19. 

These new countries include 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.

This isn’t the first expansion activity that the ChatGPT app has seen either. Shortly after its US launch, OpenAI had expanded the app to 11 additional countries including France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Korea and the U.K.

The ChatGPT iOS app has expanded to more countries since launch.

The app has been a massive success so far, crossing over half a million downloads in the first six days alone according to Techcrunch via This means that the ChatGPT app has not only performed better than rival apps like Bing Chat and Microsoft Edge but has also become one of the highest-performing new apps in general. 

Similar to its desktop counterpart, the ChatGPT app lets users interact with the chatbot to ask questions without the need of running a regular Google or Bing search. The app will also sync across devices meaning you can look up your chat history from any logged-in device. As is the case with the website, you need ChatGPT Plus to access GPT-4 as free users still have to make do with GPT-3.5.

Regardless, all of this is shaping up to indicate that if and when ChatGPT’s Android app comes around, we can expect it to cause waves in the Android world. That said, we’ll have to wait and see when OpenAI decides to add the platform alongside its iOS app. However, since OpenAI has already announced plans for an Android app, it’s only a matter of time. 

In the News: YouTube will tell its last Story on June 26
