Anthropic, the AI startup backed by Amazon and Alphabet’s Google, is launching its generative AI chatbot Claude in Europe.

Claude, which is the main competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, will be available to users through the web and a mobile app. A paid subscription-based version, Claude Pro, will also be available, as well as a business plan option which will cost around $30 per month.

In a statement, Anthropic said businesses can “seamlessly integrate” Claude into their workflows. The chatbot is available in French, German, Spanish, Italian, as well as “other European languages.”

“We look forward to bringing the unique capabilities of the Claude 3 model family to more people throughout Europe,” the statement said.

The announcement follows the European launch of Claude’s API earlier this year, which allowed businesses to integrate Anthropic’s AI models into their own websites and services.

In January, Anthropic also announced it was working on giving Claude image recognition capabilities, meaning users would be able to ask it to identify objects in an image or compare two images.

Anthropic previously said potential use cases for Claude include “summarization, search, creative and collaborative writing, Q&A, coding and more,” with the company emphasizing the chatbot’s ethical focus, saying Claude is less likely to produce “harmful outputs.”
