OpenAI, the firm behind the famous chatbot ChatGPT, has added speech alongside image, allowing users to have voice interactions with the AI tool in addition to chats.
The additional functionality will be available to Plus and Enterprise users over the next two weeks, according to the business. It also stated that this would be made available on iOS and Android, and that users may opt in via their app settings.
The business announced the features on Monday, stating:
- “We are beginning to roll out new voice and image capabilities in ChatGPT. They offer a new, more intuitive type of interface by allowing you to have a voice conversation or show ChatGPT what you’re talking about.
- “Voice and image give you more ways to use ChatGPT in your life. Snap a picture of a landmark while travelling and have a live conversation about what’s interesting about it. When you’re home, snap pictures of your fridge and pantry to figure out what’s for dinner (and ask follow-up questions for a step-by-step recipe). After dinner, help your child with a math problem by taking a photo, circling the problem set, and having it share hints with both of you.”
