As of late September 2023, ChatGPT is 100% able to talk to you.

  • Talk to ChatGPT
  • Make it talk back to you
  • And have conversations.

For now, this works only on mobile, for those with ChatGPT Plus.

You need to pay for ChatGPT to unlock this feature.

How to make ChatGPT talk to you

To make ChatGPT talk to you: open the mobile app, tap the Headphones icon, and select a voice. Start talking to the AI and see it responding instantly.

ChatGPT can also understand most languages:

“The model is proficient at transcribing English text but performs poorly with some other languages, especially those with non-roman script.”
