How to TALK to ChatGPT

To get value out of ChatGPT, you just have to spend time with it.

If you sat down to lunch with it you’d be talking to smartest person who’d ever lived. Smarter than your boss, your know-it-all brother in law, Google or Siri. They’d let you yammer on as long as you wanted. That’s what we have at our disposal today.

The biggest source of friction is having to hop over to another app & hammer out a prompt. Using GPT over voice is admittedly still harder than it seems like it ought to be, but it may eliminate friction for some:

1️⃣ Bing App

Download it for free from the app store on iOS or Android. Bing is technically GPT-4 married with web search results, but the goal is to lean further into GPT when problem-solving.

I have a love-hate relationship with Bing. I’m not sure I ultimately prefer it to vanilla GPT, but it’s the easiest one to use at the moment. I use the Bing widget on iOS, which has a voice prompt button you can use from your home screen.

This extension add a voice button to the usual ChatGPT interface. Click the mic button, or hold down space bar to enable speech-to-text.

3️⃣ JackChat

This is actually my favorite right now, and seems to be pulling current info from the web to augment the GPT responses. The downside is it doesn’t have a widget I can use to launch it from my home screen on mobile.
