Do you collect my precise location data through the ChatGPT Android App?

No. Our Android App doesn’t access your device’s Location, Bluetooth, or other services to collect or approximate your precise location data. We do collect your IP address, however. IP addresses can be used to estimate the device’s country, state, and city.

Do you store audio clips from the speech-to-text feature?


We send audio clips from our speech-to-text feature to our servers so that we can use our Whisper API to transcribe them, but we won’t retain voice clips beyond what’s necessary to complete the transcription.

Audio clips are also briefly copied to your Android device’s temp storage/cache, and are deleted in accordance with your operating system’s design. After transcription, we do not access or use audio clips that are in your Android device’s temp storage/cache for any purpose.

Learn more about having voice conversations in our Voice conversations (beta) - FAQ which can be enabled for users on Plus and Enterprise plans to have back and forth conversations with ChatGPT.

Do you train your models on audio clips from the speech-to-text feature?

No. We only use the audio clips to prepare a transcription using our Whisper API. The clips are then deleted, which means that we will not use those audio clips to improve our models. The transcriptions get used as inputs to ChatGPT and appear in conversation histories, which may be used to improve our models (depending on user settings).

When I try to login to the ChatGPT Android app I’m getting a “Something went wrong” error. What does this mean and how do I login?

This can happen when your Google Play Store version is out of date. Please update your Google Play Store version then wait a little while and try again.

I disabled Chat History & Training from my browser. Does that mean Chat History & Training will also be off on my Android app?

No. Chat History & Training settings do not sync across browsers, applications, or devices. You must disable Chat History & Training on each browser, application, or device separately.
