Try these ChatGPT-powered AI Keyboards to use advanced writing capabilities on any Android or iOS app.
Generative AI (GenAI) based tools have recently proven helpful in answering complex questions in natural language, summarizing lengthy articles, or improving writing in general.
Usually, to use these tools, you may need to visit the AI tool’s website or app and type in your intended prompt. Once a satisfactory response is generated, you need to copy the generated text and paste it back into the app or website where you want the text to go. This can be especially inconvenient if you frequently switch between multiple apps.
Luckily, we have multiple third-party keyboard apps for iPhone and Android devices that allow you to use ChatGPT/GPT-powered responses and grammar checks within any app. Here, we’ll explore some of these GenAI Keyboards for Android and iOS.
Use ChatGPT with any app on iPhone and Android
The following AI keyboards for Android and iOS devices are powered with ChatGPT and can be used to generate intelligent responses in other apps.
Note:You need to set up and enable these third-party keyboards before you can use them on Android or iOS. For iOS, you might have to enable “Allow Full Access” for the respective keyboard to take full advantage of the available features. Most of these keyboard apps walk you through the setup process when you launch them for the first time.
Caution:When you allow full access to a third-party keyboard, the keyboard developer could potentially access everything you type. However, reputable developers usually have privacy policies in place to ensure they handle user data responsibly. It’s essential to review these policies and only enable full access for keyboards from trusted sources.
