OpenAI's ChatGPT App for Mac Now Available to All Users

The ChatGPT app for Mac is now available to all users, OpenAI announced today. The app first came out in mid-May, but it saw a slow rollout that was limited to ChatGPT Plus subscribers until now.

OpenAI says that the ChatGPT Mac app is meant to make it easier for users to access ChatGPT and to ask questions about email, screenshots, websites, and content on the Mac. With the ChatGPT app installed, you can press Option + Space on the keyboard to bring up a chat interface for asking ChatGPT a question.

There's a built-in Voice Mode for having voice conversations with ChatGPT, a search feature for looking through past conversations, and more. With the wider rollout, no subscription plan is necessary for using ChatGPT on the Mac. OpenAI has made the latest version of ChatGPT, GPT-4o, available for free, but for a limited number of requests.

Apple has established a partnership with OpenAI that will see ChatGPT integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia. With user permission, Apple's built-in Siri personal assistant can hand complicated requests over to ChatGPT, relaying the information to the user.

I have reservations about using these tools that are being created by stealing from anywhere and everywhere to create the end results

Louie really said it best in this short essay ('')

The “public” in “public web” means free to access; it does not mean it's free to use.

I’ve been using ChatGPT on my iPhone and iPad, and it’s fantastic. I get all the information I need in seconds. I haven’t used the desktop version as much since it’s online, but I’m impressed with the mobile experience. There are no ads to interrupt, making it a smooth and efficient tool. However, I wonder how long this will last before monetization comes into play. If advertisers notice reduced traffic due to ChatGPT, we might see some changes. So, I suggest enjoying this ad-free experience while it lasts.

Pfft. Another Mac app without the ability to remove the Menu bar icon? No thanks. Apple needs to make an option to block all of these annoying menu bar icons so we can ditch these silly menubar apps like Bartender.

"*The desktop app is only available for macOS 14+ with Apple Silicon (M1 or better)"

That's kind of a shame though.
