- The Awesome ChatGPT prompts feature described above doesn’t seem to work despite trying it out numerous times.
- While testing the desktop application, I found that the screen goes blank at certain times and I had to close and restart the application to get rid of this issue.
The ChatGPT Desktop application is very handy to get any responses from ChatGPT as and when you like without opening any browser window. It is a good attempt at developing an application that has taken the world by storm but there are some issues that need to be addressed by the developers for it to be widely acceptable.
