OpenAI’s popular artificial intelligence chatbot, ChatGPT, saw its monthly website visits decline for the third month in a row in August, data from analytics firm Similarweb.
Yet, there are signs the decline is coming to an end, according to Similarweb.
Worldwide desktop and mobile website visits to the ChatGPT website decreased by 3.2% to 1.43 billion in August, following approximately 10% drops from each of the previous two months.
The amount of time visitors spent on the website has also been declining monthly since March, from an average of 8.7 minutes on site to 7 minutes on site in August.
But August worldwide unique visitors ticked up to 180.5 million users from 180 million, a sign that school coming back into session in September may help ChatGPT’s traffic and usage, and some schools have begun to embrace it.
Before Meta’s Threads launch, ChatGPT was the fastest-growing consumer application ever, and is now one of the top 30 websites in the world.
