The conversational AI service ChatGPT just got a handy new feature for android phone users – the ability to summon it as an overlay from anywhere in the OS. No more needing to have the app open to query ChatGPT!
In the latest ChatGPT beta, you can add a dedicated ChatGPT quick settings tile. Tapping it launches an overlay window where you can chat with ChatGPT over any screen, app, or activity on your android device.
Whether you’re browsing Chrome, gaming, reading a book, or even composing a text, you can bring up ChatGPT to get its take with just a quick settings tap. It works like a system-level chat head.
This makes ChatGPT way more convenient to access on Android. You no longer have to laboriously switch apps every time you want to ask it something. Just summon the bot with your quick settings and let the conversation flow naturally.
For now, you can’t set ChatGPT as an actual default voice assistant to invoke hands-free. But the overlay gets you close to that level of integration and ubiquity.
As ChatGPT matures on mobile, deeper OS integration like default assistant support seems inevitable. But for now, Android users can enjoy ChatGPT’s handy new overlay to get AI-powered conversations and assistance from anywhere.
No longer constrained to a single app, ChatGPT can now truly feel like a digital assistant that’s just a tap away. Google Assistant better watch its back, because ChatGPT is becoming a versatile AI sidekick on Android.
