The rise of ChatGPT as the leading AI chatbot tool has been nothing short of extraordinary. With a closer examination of its growing dominance and user behavior, a fascinating window into the world of AI chatbots emerges. Recent reports from data.ai and writerbuddy.ai offer valuable insights into the widespread adoption of this language model-based chatbot across various countries.
According to writerbuddy.ai’s study on AI tools, ChatGPT has amassed a staggering 14.6 billion visits, averaging around 1.2 billion visits per month. As the most popular platform among the top 50 analyzed AI platforms, it boasts an impressive 60% share of the traffic.
Remarkably, mobile devices serve as the primary means of access for 58% of ChatGPT users, as reported by writerbuddy.ai. Moreover, the user base exhibits a significant gender disparity, with approximately 74.16% of users identifying as male.
Despite facing competition from other chatbot platforms like Perplexity AI and Character AI, ChatGPT continues to dominate the market with an average usage duration of 30 minutes in the AI tools sector.
The influence of ChatGPT extends beyond national borders, as highlighted by writerbuddy.ai. The chatbot reigns as the most popular AI tool in the United States, closely followed by India and Brazil. Impressively, India leads the world in terms of ChatGPT app installations, accounting for 18% of global installations, just ahead of the United States with 17.5%.
Moreover, the mobile version of ChatGPT has achieved a remarkable milestone of 110 million downloads, resulting in an estimated global consumer spending of $28.6 million, as indicated by data.ai’s report. During its launch on Google Play, the app experienced an unprecedented weekly adoption rate of 18 million new installations within the first week alone.
While ChatGPT surpasses its competitors in terms of total downloads on both iOS and Android platforms (over 4 million in the five weeks leading up to December 1st, according to data.ai), it ranks second in terms of consumer spending, falling behind Ask AI from Codeway.
For users seeking advanced features, ChatGPT Plus offers a recurring subscription priced at $19.99 per month. Data.ai compares this cost to popular music and streaming services, making ChatGPT Plus an appealing investment for those seeking a more enhanced experience.
As great as ChatGPT’s success has been, OpenAI, the company behind it, has encountered its own set of challenges. The sudden dismissal and subsequent reinstatement of CEO Sam Altman raised concerns about the company’s estimated $86 billion valuation. In response, Microsoft, which holds a 49% stake in OpenAI, moved swiftly to safeguard its investment while securing a “non-voting observer” position on the OpenAI board.
Altman’s removal stemmed from concerns about the safety and speed of OpenAI’s technology deployment. These concerns resonated with board members like Ilya Sutskever, co-founder and chief scientist of OpenAI, who cautiously considered the potential implications of ChatGPT on the future of artificial general intelligence (AGI).
Despite these challenges, Altman remains optimistic about OpenAI’s future direction. The company’s key goals moving forward include advancing research, investing in full-stack safety efforts, releasing more products, and bolstering the governance structure.
