On September 26, OpenAI announced that it has added voice chat capabilities to chatbot ChatGPT. This will have an impact on giants such as Google and Apple in the field of intelligent voice assistants.
ChatGPT can answer users’ queries with five “personas,” and it also sounds more like a real person than voice assistants such as Alexa and Siri. OpenAI says adding voice capabilities is an important way to get more users to use and interact with ChatGPT.
Now, users can prompt chatbots not only by typing sentences into text boxes, but also by speaking out loud.
Voice assistants are already in cars, smartphones, TVS and smart speakers, and are used by millions of people every day. But for the most part, voice assistants can only perform simple interactions, such as turning on the lights or reporting the weather. The “big language model” technology behind chatbots opens up the possibility of voice assistants being able to have longer, more natural conversations and answer more complex questions.
In addition, OpenAI has also installed “eyes” for ChatGPT, paying users and enterprise users will be able to use the image function, image search is a bit like Google Lens, just take a photo of interest, ChatGPT will find the problem, and respond accordingly.
The OpenAI staff said they have tested voice and image capabilities and added security measures to ensure the robot responds appropriately to sensitive topics.
