Meanwhile, Anthropic's Claude emerged as a formidable rival to OpenAI's ChatGPT, a Microsoft-supported chatbot that surged to 100 million monthly active users within just two months of its release. Previously accessible online in selected countries, Claude's debut across the European Union marks its first availability on the web and iPhones in the region. The expansion also includes several non-EU European countries, such as Switzerland and Iceland.

In addition to its broader availability, European business customers can subscribe to the "Claude Team" plan, priced at 28 euros ($30.21) per month excluding value-added tax. This expansion not only broadens Claude's accessibility but also intensifies the competition in the rapidly evolving AI chatbot market.
