ChatGPT mobile mania: Why users are flocking to ChatGPT Plus

Share post:

On the day OpenAI unveiled GPT-4o, ChatGPT’s mobile app saw a staggering 22% spike in revenue, marking its highest single-day earnings ever. This surge in revenue continued, with earnings doubling the average daily income by Tuesday. By week’s end, the app garnered $4.2 million, largely thanks to the App Store.

GPT-4o introduced notable enhancements such as faster performance, multimodal capabilities (text, voice, vision), and new features like voice mode and the ability to analyze screenshots and documents. Despite these advancements being available for free on desktop versions, mobile users were required to subscribe to ChatGPT Plus to access these features, a strategy that significantly boosted sales.

Voice input capabilities, exclusive to the mobile version, and the ability to access chat history offline were significant draws. These features, coupled with enhanced response times and mobile integration, provided a substantial value proposition that desktop users missed.

This strategy not only demonstrates OpenAI’s savvy in market segmentation but also underscores the growing consumer interest in cutting-edge AI technology. Users are showing that they are not just interested in new AI developments; they are willing to pay for early access, highlighting a robust market for advanced AI applications in mobile settings.

NOTE: Make sure if you are downloading from the app store that you have the official app from OpenAI. The authentic OpenAI app will say that it is published by OpenAI andhave, on the developer page (scroll down) a notation that the app comes from OpenAI LLC. Without that, you have one of the many knock offs.
