Replace Apple's Spotlight search with ChatGPT for Mac, which can take screenshots, analyze files, and review text with a simple keyboard shortcut.

Apple may not be releasing Apple Intelligence or ChatGPT integration with macOS Sequoia until later in 2024, but users can bring AI to their Mac today. The new ChatGPT app for Mac is now available for all users beyond just Plus subscribers.

Users can set up the CMD + Space keyboard shortcut to summon ChatGPT, which means replacing Spotlight. The app works with macOS Sonoma or later on Macs with M-series processors.

A Windows version is coming later in 2024.

ChatGPT for Mac provides simple tools for taking screenshots that can be uploaded directly into a query. The same can be done with files, images, or text selected by the user.

Conversations with the app will be archived and searchable. Users can even interact via voice, and ChatGPT 4o will be available at a later date.

Get ChatGPT for Mac from the OpenAI website.

    I have been playing with it to do matrix calculus derivations but a lot of times the LaTeX rendering fails and you just get the code.

    Yep, because by "everyone" I clearly meant every Mac ever. PowerPC too. Why not. Especially since I totally didn't explain "everyone" in the second paragraph.

    So what you say is “ChatGPT app for Apple Silicon Macs now available for everyone”.

    If you're going to be pedantic about it, it is available to everyone, it just doesn't run on every Mac. IOW, if someone with an Intel Mac wants to use the macOS ChatGPT app they can obtain an M-series Mac.

    Apple Silicon Macs are available to everyone. Whether or not you can afford one doesn't mean they aren''t available.

    Therefore ChatGPT for Mac is available to everyone also.

    This one doesn't have all the privacy features I guess...   why installing this one instead of waiting the one that's gonna be part of Apple Intelligence? 

    I don't quite get why Open Ai is launching this. 
    "The desktop app is only available for macOS 14+ with Apple Silicon (M1 or better). "... same thing.

    OpenAI makes money with their own product when users upgrade to the premium licenses:

    https://openai.com/chatgpt/pricing/

    The free standalone version and the one that's part of Apple Intelligence will make some people want more features. The premium one can do image generation and there are enterprise tiers for businesses that make it easier to integrate across a company.

    OpenAI yearly revenue is $3.4b. This is equivalent to 14m paid users on $20/month.

    Apple's install base is over 1 billion, on Mac it's over 100 million. Every 4m users that upgrade to premium is worth $1b.
