Share This Post

Yesterday, OpenAI held a Spring update event, during which the company announced a few new things and made several improvements to ChatGPT. The biggest announcement was their new AI model called GPT-4o, where “o” means omnimodal capabilities, as the model can process and integrate text, vision, and audio. 

ChatGPT has over 100 million users, and the Spring update event was mainly focused on free users; even the new GPT-4o is free for all users. Surprisingly, one of the announcements that caught most off guard was the new ChatGPT desktop application, which is only for macOS users. The desktop application surprised many people because Microsoft invested over $13 billion into OpenAI, so one would expect a desktop application for Windows before Apple.

However, the desktop app for Apple could be due to the OpenAI and Apple deal that is said to be close to being done. The ChatGPT desktop application will require macOS 14.0 or later. 

The ChatGPT MacOS application does look great. It can stay in your taskbar for easy access. It works as a web application and can instantly answer all your queries. The desktop application can also talk back to you and communicate with you like an assistant. You can talk, interrupt, listen, and repeat fluently.

The ChatGPT app can also open on any web page to give you ChatGPT support throughout. Here, you can share screenshots of the webpage, request an explanation, or ask any other query. One amazing feature is its ability to solve any issue on your screen just by highlighting and clicking cmd + C. You can get coding assistance and solve complex mathematics problems.


OpenAI’s Spring update event has brought some exciting developments, particularly the introduction of the GPT-4o model. Additionally, the surprise release of the ChatGPT desktop application for macOS users has sparked some discussions. It will be interesting to see how these new advancements impact the user experience and the potential OpenAI and Apple deals. Windows users shouldn’t be disheartened, as the ChatGPT desktop application for Windows will be coming soon later this year.
