Despite pre-registration being accessible, the Google Play Store listing for ChatGPT gives the impression that the application will soon be available in certain countries such as India. The application will be available for other countries as soon as possible.
Besides being free software, the Play Store description of this app notes that it syncs your history across all your devices and gets the latest model updates released by OpenAI. When ChatGPT becomes available for Android devices, the main features that will be available to users are: instant answers, tailored advice, creative encouragement, professional user input, and learning opportunities.
