The mobile application (App) version of ChatGPT is now availble in Malaysia and has quickly made it to the top place in the free app download list on App Store.

iPhone users have been able to download it from App Store, but Android users still need to wait a while, according to news portal MyPrimaBuzz.

A check on App store’s top charts on Thursday showed that ChatGPT now ranked number one on the list, followed by other apps such as Gigi Coffee, MAE by Maybank2u and Touch ‘n Go eWallet.

According to App Store, this official app is free, syncs users’ history across devices, and brings users the newest model improvements from OpenAI.

“With ChatGPT in your pocket, you’ll find instant answers, tailored advice, creative inspiration, professional input and learning opportunities,” it added.

According to its developer OpenAI, the Microsoft-backed company said it has trained a model called ChatGPT which interacts “in a conversational way”.

“The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer followup questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests,” OpenAi said on its website.

The company also pointed out there are some limitations as ChatGPT sometimes writes plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers.

“ChatGPT is sensitive to tweaks to the input phrasing or attempting the same prompt multiple times. For example, given one phrasing of a question, the model can claim to not know the answer, but given a slight rephrase, can answer correctly,” the company added.

OpenAI’s breakthrough ChatGPT has hastened the release of large language model (LLMs) or ChatGPT-like services by companies around the world, from Internet players like Alibaba and Baidu Inc to hardware companies like Asustek Computer Inc, Bloomberg reported.

The newswire reported that Alibaba Group Holding Ltd is also integrating its most advanced artificial intelligence system into its Slack-like DingTalk messaging app and a meeting assistant named Tingwu.
