Open AI's ChatGPT is one of the most popular AI chat bots in the world right now.

It's a large language model trained on the entire content of the internet. That's powerful.

You can use it for copywriting, content generation, language translation and even as a virtual assistant.

All of this can be done from the ChatGPT website.

And it's powerful. But it becomes even more powerful when you access it directly on your Mac computer - Macbook or iMac.

Once you have it on your computer, new use cases open up.

It can help you with your grammar, it can work as an email assistant and even as a creative writing aid when you are in the middle of a deep writing session.

Unfortunately, right now there is no official Mac app for ChatGPT. The great news is that you can still use it on your Mac via Elephas - The best AI writing assistant for your Mac.
