OpenAI CEO Sam Altman recently sat down with Bill Gates (Microsoft co-founder) and discussed various topics at length. This included the societal impact of new technologies, the current state of AI, and the future of OpenAI. During the talk, Gates asked Altman – “What application on the phone do you use the most?“
To this, the ChatGPT creator had a rather unexpected reply. He revealed that ChatGPT is not the app that he uses the most on his phone. The OpenAI CEO said, “I wish I could say ChatGPT,” but guess what his most used app is? It’s Slack.
“I didn’t quite count the browser as an app. It’s possible it use it more, but I still would bet Slack. I’m on Slack all day”

Reportedly, many Fortune 100 companies also use Slack as their primary communication interface. Slack helps in organizing the company into various channels and teams. Efficient and reliable communication with features suitable for professional needs is exactly what Slack provides.
Sam Altman revealing Slack as his most used app shows how busy the CEO gets managing and coordinating the efforts at OpenAI. On the second position of Altman’s most used apps, comes Apple’s iMessage, which is quite common in the US. During this interview, Sam Altman also said “Each technological revolution has gotten faster. [Artificial intelligence] will be the fastest by far.”
Speaking of the most-used app by Gates, he revealed that he uses Outlook the most. Reportedly, he uses his web browser the second most after Outlook since it is his go-to for reading news articles.
