iOS Voice UI revamp

OpenAI is revamping its UI for the upcoming voice mode in the iOS app. The recent update made several changes:

Voice UI Changes:

    • The vision capability and the option to open the camera have been removed from the main screen and the alpha introduction screen. These features are expected to be released later and will not be part of the end of July release for the initial advanced voice mode.
    • The camera and image upload options are still available but have been moved within the UI.
    • The mute button is now more visible and distinctly looks like a mute button. Previously, users had to tap on the voice animation to toggle it.
    • Buttons have become slightly larger for better usability.
    • A new three-dot menu includes the image upload option, suggesting potential expansion with future features like screen sharing.
  • You will be able to search across your Memories on ChatGPT as well. This option was added to the MacOS app last time. Not 100% sure if it is already available to the public cuz I still don't have the memory feature working by default.

Improved GPT Capabilities:

    • Users have noted that ChatGPT has become smarter. This follows an announcement from the ChatGPT X account (on the social network X, formerly Twitter), although no specific details were provided.
    • In the custom GPT TestingCatalog, ChatGPT can now automatically decide whether to display an image in markdown from search or external sources. If you haven't seen this feature, you can explore it in the TestingCatalog GPT.

These updates highlight OpenAI's ongoing efforts to improve the user experience and expand the availability of new features globally.
