OpenAI Introduces Read Aloud Feature to ChatGPT: How to Use on Smartphones and Web

Listen Up! ChatGPT Now Reads Your Responses Out Loud

Love to multitask or prefer listening to information? Great news! OpenAI’s popular AI chat tool, ChatGPT, has added a new feature: Read Aloud.

Here’s the gist:

  • You can now have ChatGPT verbally narrate its responses to you.
  • This allows you to:
    • Listen while you do other things: Catch up on emails, chores, or even a workout while absorbing information.
    • Improve accessibility: This feature is helpful for those who prefer audio or have visual impairments.

How to Use It:

  • On Smartphones:

    1. Ask ChatGPT your question and wait for the response.
    2. Tap and hold on the text response.
    3. A menu will appear with the option “Read Aloud.” Select it.
    4. Sit back and listen! You’ll have playback controls (play, pause, rewind) for your convenience.
  • On the Web:

    1. Follow steps 1 and 2 above (ask a question and wait for the response).
    2. Look for a speaker icon located below the response window.
    3. Click the speaker icon, and ChatGPT will begin reading the response aloud.

Additional points:

  • This feature is still relatively new, and the voice might sound slightly robotic at times.
  • OpenAI is likely working on improvements for a more natural-sounding experience.

Ready to try it out?

  • Head over to and engage in a conversation with ChatGPT.
  • Remember, you can ask it anything you’re curious about and now, listen to the answers!
