ChatGPT now has a separate app for desktops but surprisingly, it is only available on Apple's macOS. The announcement was made during OpenAI's Spring Update event, along with a few other key updates. Interestingly, there was no mention of a Windows app, despite the close partnership between Microsoft and OpenAI. Microsoft has invested over $10 billion in OpenAI and uses its technology in services like Copilot.
As per a report from Windows Central, OpenAI said that the majority of its users on a desktop operating system are using Mac, even though Windows has a much larger share of the PC market. Another reason could be Microsoft Copilot, which is built-in to all Windows PCs and uses OpenAI's GPT models anyway.
However, Windows users shouldn't lose all hope as OpenAI engineer Javi took to social media platform X and mentioned that the company is looking for a Windows engineer to help build a native ChatGPT app for Windows 11.
"We're rolling out the macOS app to Plus users starting today, and we will make it more broadly available in the coming weeks. We also plan to launch a Windows version later this year," OpenAI also added in its blog post.
This could also be the beginning of much-talked about Apple-OpenAI partnership. Apple is rumoured to use OpenAI's technology to bring AI features to its upcoming devices, with an announcement possible as early as next month's WWDC.
Meanwhile, OpenAI has also announced its new GPT-4o model. OpenAI says that GPT-4o is much better than any existing model at understanding and discussing the images you share. For example, you can now take a picture of a menu in a different language and talk to GPT-4o to translate it, learn about the food's history and significance, and get recommendations.
In the future, improvements will allow for more natural, real-time voice conversation and the ability to converse with ChatGPT via real-time video. For example, you could show ChatGPT a live sports game and ask it to explain the rules to you.
To make advanced AI more accessible and useful worldwide, GPT-4o's language capabilities are improved across quality and speed. ChatGPT also now supports more than 50 languages, including six Indian languages, across sign-up and login, user settings, and more.
