If you’re an Android user who has been trying to use ChatGPT on your mobile browser, you know that it’s clunky at best, and unusable at worst. But now, with ChatGPT finally available on Android, those days are behind you.
How to Get ChatGPT on Android
If you’re an Android user, ChatGPT is now finally available on Android via the Google Play Store. As OpenAI stated in a tweet, rollout is starting in the United States, India, Bangladesh, and Brazil, with other countries set to follow suit.
If you pre-registered for ChatGPT on Android in the same way that you can pre-register to download games as they become available on Google Play, then you probably already got an alert that ChatGPT is available to install on your device. In that case, all you need to do is go to your app drawer and tap on the ChatGPT logo.

How ChatGPT on Android Compares to Other Versions
Assuming that you already know how to use ChatGPT, you’re no doubt wondering how the Android version stacks up against other versions. I’m happy to tell you that if you want to use ChatGPT only on mobile, it works splendidly. In fact, it’s probably going to become your preferred method of using ChatGPT. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, using ChatGPT on mobile is probably the best way to use the AI chatbot.
It feels fast, slick, and like it was designed with a mobile-first mindset. If you have used the iOS version of ChatGPT, then you already know what to expect. Just as it felt right at home in Apple’s ecosystem, so too does it feel at home on Android. And because navigating and learning the in’s and out’s of the app only takes a few moments, you’ll be asking questions and getting AI-generated answers in no time.
Do keep in mind that, as of July 2023, not every feature is available on Android. For example, ChatGPT Plus was not available upon release. When it’s available, it will be available for Premium subscribers as always. As for the perks? You can easily read your entire ChatGPT history (regardless of the platform you’ve used it on) and control the data of your account. You can even export the data to your device with a single tap.
ChatGPT on Android: The Circle Is Now Complete
With ChatGPT now available on Android, OpenAI’s AI chatbot now feels like a wholly complete product. Where ChatGPT goes from here is up to OpenAI. Here’s to hoping that future installments of ChatGPT release synergistically to allow users to get the complete, updated experience of ChatGPT, no matter what platform they choose to use.
