Voice assistants like Alexa and Siri were all the rage when they arrived on the scene about a decade ago. However, the rise of generative AI models has created a demand for smarter voice assistants. With this quick iPhone hack, you can make the upgrade from Siri to ChatGPT.
Last week, Amazon and OpenAI announced two significant releases that upped the ante for voice assistants. First, Amazon supercharged Alexa with a new LLM, intended to make her function like a hands-free ChatGPT.
Then, OpenAI released an update to ChatGPT that could make it “see, hear, and speak” by accepting voice and image inputs and responding with voice answers.
Having voice chats with ChatGPT elevates the chatbot to the status of a voice assistant like Siri, and it can replace Siri on your iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max by leveraging the new Action button.
The new Action button, which replaces the side slider, allows users to use the button to perform a series of personalized actions depending on the users’ needs, such as accessing the camera, flashlight, Voice Memos, and even ChatGPT.
If you would like to quickly access ChatGPT with a tap of a button on your new iPhone, we have quick instructions to do so efficiently below.
