Are you dissatisfied with the limitations of Siri when it comes to answering your questions? Good news: There’s a new solution available. Developer Yue Yang has developed a shortcut that enables you to convert Apple's voice assistant into an intelligent AI assistant that leverages the capabilities of OpenAI. To use this feature, all you need is a device that supports Siri and an active OpenAI account.

How to Use Siri as an AI-Powered Chatbot with OpenAI's ChatGPT

A recent discovery by BGR shows that users can now use a shortcut to integrate Apple's Siri with OpenAI's ChatGPT. Instead of replacing Siri with ChatGPT, the shortcut allows Siri to transfer users' queries to ChatGPT and provide them with answers from the AI chatbot. Developer Yue Yang notes that since the shortcut links ChatGPT and Siri, it can be used on various devices equipped with Siri, such as iPhones, iPads, and Macs. To use this shortcut, you will need to have an OpenAI account, which you can create by visiting the official website. Once you have an account, you can access your API key by visiting a specific page or through your profile and clicking on the option to create a new secret key.

API keys serve as a crucial tool for developers to connect various services for a particular user. In the case of using ChatGPT with Siri, these keys act as the identifiers required to grant Siri the authority to operate ChatGPT. If you have made it this far, it is apparent that this process is not as straightforward as downloading an app from the App Store. Nonetheless, it is not overly complicated either.

After obtaining your API key, the next step is to download the latest version of the shortcut created by Yue Yang from their GitHub page using the Apple device you wish to use with ChatGPT. As of this writing, version 1.2 is the most recent. Once you open the shortcut on your device, it will prompt you for your API key information. After you enter it, you will need to select a specific phrase to activate your ChatGPT-enhanced Siri instead of the regular Siri. It's important to note that this shortcut only works with English language inputs. While this process may seem a bit complicated, it's not much more involved than downloading an app from the App Store.

Once you have set up your ChatGPT-powered Siri, you can use it to communicate with the AI chatbot and even customize specific commands. Yue Yang has made it possible to access all of ChatGPT's features and personalize your new assistant by setting its personality. On GitHub, the developer suggests that you can configure your Siri to be a joker, a writer, a chef, or any other persona you choose. The possibilities for customization are limitless.

The shortcut created by Yue Yang is an exciting way to breathe new life into Siri and enhance its capabilities by leveraging the power of ChatGPT. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily set up ChatGPT as a virtual assistant to help with a range of tasks and answer any questions you might have. While the setup process may seem daunting at first, it is a straightforward process that can be completed with a few simple steps. With ChatGPT, Siri has the potential to become a smarter and more versatile voice assistant, and users can enjoy a whole new level of interaction with their Apple devices.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

    1. Tom Hawack said on August 23, 2023 at 2:34 pm

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
