"A massively underrated feature of ChatGPT is its speech functionality on smartphones," writes Donald Clark. My experience was a bit less than amazing, but still instructive. First - don't use the Play Store (or Apple store either, probably). There's a top of apps out there pretending they're chatGPT. Watch out for the icons that imitate, but aren't exactly, the OpenAI icon (pictured in this post). Go to the OpenAI app page on the web. Second, I found you had to tap three times to use audio - one to start it, once to stop it, and once to upload the text. So, not exactly hands-free. Third, chatGPT only responds in text, even if you're in audio mode. It's still easier to use voice on the phone than to type it out. But amazing? I wouldn't go that far.
