ChatGPT may soon get voice mode on the web: leaked feature hints at speech settings

In the ever-evolving landscape of AI communication tools, the latest buzz is that OpenAI's ChatGPT might be extending its textual prowess to vocal interactions. Reverse engineer Tibor Blaho recently spotted signs of a forthcoming voice control feature for ChatGPT on the web. This significant update could potentially transform how we interact with one of the most popular AI language models today.

OpenAI is working on a voice control feature for the ChatGPT web version. A new Speech setting was spotted in the development allowing one to select a voice and a language, in a similar way to how it appears on mobile. The voice input option itself is not there yet so it is not possible to test yet and unclear if conversational mode will come along with this feature afterwards. In addition, OpenAI refined the builder profile with minor UI changes and LinkedIn integration seems to be working now (in internal testing).

Who will benefit from the ChatGPT voice control feature

When the voice control feature becomes available, it will be a significant boon for:

  • Prompt engineers: who can interact with ChatGPT in a more hands-free manner, potentially increasing productivity.
  • Early adopters: always on the lookout for new ways to streamline their workflows, and voice commands could introduce efficiencies in executing complex tasks.
  • Accessibility users: for whom textual interaction poses a challenge, voice control will enable a more inclusive user interface.

Understanding ChatGPT and its capabilities

ChatGPT is a cutting-edge language model developed by OpenAI that's capable of generating human-like text based on the prompts it receives. Its applications range from composing emails to drafting articles and even programming assistance. The integration of voice control promises to add another layer of utility and accessibility to this already powerful tool, potentially mirroring the vocal interaction capabilities seen in mobile versions or other voice-assisted AI applications.
