ChatGPT Voice Chat Feature Is Now Rolling Out To All Free Users
Despite the chaos that has been going on in the world of OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, the company has managed to launch a new feature that gives people more access to the AI chatbot.
The news was announced by OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman via X, the social network previously known as Twitter, and means that ChatGPT users can now make use of the Voice Chat feature in its apps without having to pay.
Previously, it was only available to those who paid for the Plus or Enterprise tiers of the service.
The Voice Chats feature was first launched back in September and allows people to speak with the chatbot instead of typing, making for a more dynamic experience that is similar to the one that people expect from digital assistants like Siri but never really get.
Apple is said to be working on its own Large Language Model similar to OpenAI’s which could potentially improve Siri in the future. In fact, Apple is said to be planning an AI push as soon as next year’s iOS 18 and iPhone 16 launches.

The news comes after a boardroom battle that saw CEO Sam Altman fired last Friday before he was reinstated earlier today after complaints by some board members, investors like Microsoft, and the vast majority of OpenAI’s employees. Microsoft is heavily invested in OpenAI and uses its technology across its platforms and products.
