now, he responds to you via audio


OpenAI announced a new feature that allows ChatGPT to deliver responses out loud. The function is available for the web version, Android and iOS and is possible thanks to the so-called multimodal features (the ability to read and respond through more than one medium). The news was revealed after competitor Anthropic added similar features to its artificial intelligence models.

Feature available in multiple languages

The tool is called Read Aloud and allows responses in 37 languages. But, according to OpenAI, it will automatically detect the language of the text you are reading. The feature is available for GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 versions.

The new function will be useful in cases where users are performing another task at the same time as using the chatbot. So, simply activate reading aloud and follow the answer without having to look at the computer or smartphone screen.

To test the new feature, it is necessary to create a common text conversation, select the message and then listen to the content with one of the five audio models available on the platform. After activating the function, the app displays a small player at the top of the screen, with commands to pause, advance or rewind ten seconds and keep reading active for all subsequent messages. The information is from The Verge.

Enabling read aloud in ChatGPT

  • The first step to using the new feature is to update ChatGPT to the latest version on the App Store or Google Play Store.
  • The web version shows a speaker icon below the text.
  • When starting the application, send a prompt, tap and hold your finger on the answer and select the “Read Aloud” option.
  • Then, just listen to the answer provided.
  • It is also possible to change the chatbot's voice.
  • To do this, tap the three-bar icon, select your profile photo, click on “Voice” and choose one of the available options.
