Wait a second. If you thought typing a few commands and having an AI create something for you was pretty cool, wait until you see what ChatGPT has in store. The popular AI chatbot is about to become more interactive and friendly than ever.
You heard us right. ChatGPT thinks typing is old news. Who has time for that when you can engage with ChatGPT like it's your new best friend without needing a keyboard?
While a lot of people think AI is the coming of Satan, others look forward to the interaction without having to deal with, you know, real people.
And guess what? ChatGPT is more than happy to help promote AI interaction by making it as fluid and natural as AI can be.
What are we talking about?
ChatGPT is getting ready to unleash new voice and image capabilities
that will take your interaction with the chat box to another level.
No more lonely nights. Now you can spend them talking with your AI buddy, and we mean talking, not typing.
OpenAI demonstrated this voice feature with a person asking for a bedtime story using voice chat and bingo, the AI responded by spitting out an AI-generated work of fiction. Who needs real people when AI can fill the bill, right?
OpenAI also demonstrated its new features by graciously helping a human fix their bike. The super chat machine "looked" at images that were put in the chat and went to work, even going so far as to identify the right tool in a toolbox. I don't know about you, but I think this could be better than a mechanic the next time my car needs a tune-up.
This new interface is going to be like having an extra family member. You can ask it to read you a bedtime story, join in on debates, or simply hold a conversation with it. OpenAI, the folks that are behind ChatGPT, says you can "Snap a picture of a landmark while traveling and have a live conversation about what's interesting about it."
Who needs real people, right?
Just a heads up, Amazon has been spotted pumping money into Anthropic, the AI firm that created ChatGPT's arch-enemy, Claude. It's estimated they've already spent $4B. So now they've drawn the battle lines with Microsoft.
Amazon claims the goal is to improve customer experience, but let's face it, sellers and advertisers are going to benefit too.
So, what's the skinny on this new and improved ChatGPT?
When is it available, and who can use this new best friend forever?
This amazing new interface is set to drop for Plus and Enterprise users over the next few weeks, but the "voice" will only be available on Android and iOS.
That means if you see somebody walking down the street on their phone, they may not be talking to a human being. They might just be talking to their new bestie, ChatGPT.
