How to Use ChatGPT on Android

What to know

  • OpenAI’s native ChatGPT app is now available for Android devices from the Play Store.

Since the release of its iOS app months ago and much speculation about its release on the Android platform, ChatPT’s app is finally here on the Play Store. You can now start conversations with your favorite AI chatbot right from their Android devices, continue previous chats, and change its settings as you please. Here’s everything you need to know to start using ChatGPT on Android. 

How to use ChatGPT on Android

ChatGPT’s Android app is not too dissimilar from its iOS app. The functionalities are more or less the same, with a few key features from the desktop site, such as plugins, still missing on the app version. Nevertheless, for most users, the ability to chat with ChatGPT on Android the official way is welcome enough in itself. In either case, such features are never more than a couple of updates away anyway. So stay tuned for that. 

Install and set up the ChatGPT app on Android

To install ChatGPT on your Android device, click on the link below:

Tap on Install.

Then tap on Open.

Then log in to your ChatGPT account. 

Tap on Continue to begin.

Using ChatGPT on Android

Once you’re in, you will see the familiar prompt box at the bottom and the ability to switch between GPT 3.5 and GPT 4 if you have a ChatGPT Plus subscription.

Type and send a prompt to start a conversation.

And wait for ChatGPT to provide its response. 

Record and enter voice prompts

ChatGPT also lets users simply record their prompts as voice notes which are then converted back to text by ChatGPT. Here’s how to do so:

Tap on the microphone icon to the left of the prompt box.

Allow ChatGPT access to record audio.

Speak your prompt into the microphone, and then press Tap to stop recording.

Automatically, the recording will be converted and added to the prompt box. Make any changes necessary, and tap on Send.

ChatGPT will now begin answering your query.  

Access your ChatGPT history

To access your chat history, tap on the hamburger icon at the top left corner.

And select History.

You will see your chats from the last 7 days. Tap on one to open it and continue that conversation.

Delete chats in the ChatGPT Android app

To delete your chats, tap on the hamburger icon at the top left corner as before.

Select History.

Tap on a chat to open it.

Then tap on the three-dot icon in the top right corner.

And select Delete.

To delete all your chats in one go, go to the hamburger icon as before. 

Select Settings.

Then tap on Data Controls.

Here, tap on Clear Chat History to delete all your chats in one go. 

You can also stop ChatGPT from saving your future chats in its chat history and denying OpenAI access to them for training. To do so, go to the Data Controls option again. Then toggle off Chat History & Training.

Change ChatGPT’s color scheme

Dark mode enthusiasts can switch the app’s color scheme from Light to Dark (and vice-versa). To do so, tap on the hamburger icon.

Select Settings

Tap on Color Scheme.

And choose between Light and Dark or let it be set according to your System for consistency. 

Export your data from the ChatGPT Android app

Similarly to the website, users can also export their ChatGPT account data and conversations. To export data, go to ‘Settings’ and tap on Data Controls.

Then select Export Data.

Tap on Export Data again.

The data will be emailed to you after it is processed, which can take some time. You will be notified of the same by mail.

Using Plugins on the ChatGPT Android app

Even though the ChatGPT app itself doesn’t support plugins, you can still use the content generated with them on the website by accessing your chat history on the app. So firstly, open ChatGPT on a browser and initiate a conversation with plugins enabled. 

Once the plugin has done its work, open that same chat from the ChatGPT app’s history. 

All the responses and links generated using the plugin should be here.

You can tap on these links to open them or continue the conversation forward.
