According to SimilarWeb, which analyzes web traffic, ChatGPT's traffic has increased sharply since its release, but the momentum slowed down to almost the same level in May 2023. In June 2023, it turned to decrease for the first time.

The decline was 9.7% lower than the previous month, the number of unique visitors was down 5.7%, and the time spent on the site was down 8.5%. Even so, it is still the service that attracts the most users as a standalone chat AI, and it is also a stand-alone chat AI that is far ahead of character.

According to SimilarWeb, the time spent by site visitors has already been on a downward trend for several months.

It is speculated that the reason for the decrease in traffic is that the novelty has faded and users have left, and that the iOS app was released in May 2023.

Reuters said this slowdown in growth could help control ChatGPT's running costs, as OpenAI CEO Sam Altman commented that operating costs were 'dizzying'.
