- OpenAI enhances its ChatGPT app for iPad with full-screen support, Siri integration, and Shortcuts compatibility.

OpenAI released an exciting update for its ChatGPT app on iOS and iPadOS, introducing a range of new features and enhancements designed to optimize the user experience for iPad users.
One of the standout improvements in the update is the introduction of full-screen support for iPad. Previously, the ChatGPT app appeared in an iPhone-sized format on larger iPad displays, limiting the user’s ability to fully utilize the available screen real estate. With the latest update, OpenAI has optimized the app to take advantage of the entire iPad screen, offering a more immersive and visually pleasing interface.
In addition to the expanded screen size, OpenAI has incorporated drag and drop functionality into the ChatGPT app. Users can now effortlessly move messages from the chat interface to other applications, streamlining the process of integrating ChatGPT-generated content into their workflows. This newfound flexibility empowers users to seamlessly transfer information and collaborate across different apps and platforms.
OpenAI has also integrated Siri support into the ChatGPT app, allowing users to summon the chatbot using voice commands. This integration enables users to initiate conversations and make inquiries without having to manually open the app, providing a convenient and hands-free experience.
Furthermore, OpenAI has harnessed the power of Apple’s Shortcuts feature, enabling users to create customized automated workflows with ChatGPT. By integrating ChatGPT queries into Shortcuts, users can initiate new chats and seamlessly incorporate the chatbot’s capabilities into their personalized automation routines. This integration provides users with greater control and efficiency in leveraging ChatGPT’s conversational AI technology.
The latest update to the ChatGPT app for iPad builds upon OpenAI’s ongoing efforts to refine and enhance its mobile offering. Since the initial launch of the app last month, OpenAI has continually improved chat history and voice input functionalities, ensuring a smoother and more responsive user experience.
Looking ahead, OpenAI has confirmed plans to expand its mobile offerings to Android users in the near future. This move aims to extend the reach and impact of ChatGPT, making the conversational AI tool accessible to a broader user base across various mobile platforms.
Earlier this year, OpenAI introduced a premium subscription service called ChatGPT Plus, which provides subscribers with priority access and access to the latest GPT-4 model for $20 per month. This subscription option has been well-received by users seeking an enhanced ChatGPT experience and demonstrates OpenAI’s commitment to providing value-added services to its user community.
