ChatGPT is the fastest-growing app in history and Business 2 Community has compiled the top 100 ChatGPT stats to show it. For this – and everything else you need to know about the super-popular new artificial intelligence chatbot – we reveal ChatGPT’s vital statistics.
Two months after it launched at the end of November 2022, the chatbot has amassed 100 million users, beating apps such as TikTok, which took nine months to reach that milestone and Instagram which took 30 months.
The invention of California startup OpenAI, ChatGPT is being hailed as the most exciting thing that has happened in technology since the advent of the internet, the first search engine or the launch of the iPhone.

Is the ChatGPT hype justified?
For sure, there’s been a lot of hype, but it may well be justified. ChatGPT can answer queries in 95 languages in a human-like conversational style, learning from your responses as it goes.
Web visits in January alone were estimated at 672 million.
Ask any question and it will be able to provide a text response, although as we see in our 100 top ChatGPT statistics below, there are limitations.
For example, ask ChatGPT to write a 400-word assignment on The Enlightenment and it will do that.
A trip to the store to buy some clothes? It will provide you with the relevant list of retail outlets.
Google search business is threatened
Because ChatGPT is so human-like in its comprehensive and mostly accurate answers, it threatens to do away with search engines, or at least to force a radical reimagining of them.
Google and a host of other tech companies are racing to catch up with OpenAI, but for now it is ChatGPT that is the fastest-growing app ever.
