ChatGPT is not limited to desktop usage. You can now use it on your Apple Watch directly through an AI assistant named Petey, which is available on the App Store. Petey was initially called WatchGPT, but had to change its name due to naming copyrights. This AI assistant is solely available for the Apple Watch and cannot be used on iOS devices. You can purchase Petey for a one-time fee of $4.99.

Petey utilizes the ChatGPT API to generate responses from your Apple Watch without requiring you to use your iPhone or Mac. Additionally, it provides quick sharing options. Due to its natural language model, Petey is often more dependable than Siri, who may frequently direct you to a Wikipedia page.

How to use ChatGPT through your Apple Watch

Engaging with ChatGPT client on your Apple Watch through Petey is an intuitive and user-friendly process. To initiate the conversation, you need to tap on the text field, which will bring up the on-screen keyboard on your watch. Once the keyboard appears, you can input your question or message and await Petey's response, which usually takes only a few moments.

For those who prefer an even more effortless and quicker method, Petey offers the option to use the microphone to dictate your query. If the speech option is enabled, Petey will instantly provide an audio response to your question.

Once you receive your response, you can scroll down to the bottom of the screen to share your answer with others. It's essential to note that only the answer will be shared, not the original question or message. You can use Petey's built-in sharing feature to send your answer via Messages or email, including a list of recent message recipients to make the sharing process more convenient.

To utilize Petey, you must have an internet connection, watchOS 9, and an Apple Watch Series 4 or later. Moreover, you can use the MacGPT app to access ChatGPT natively on your Mac. Our hands-on guide provides further information on how to use this app.

ChatGPT, anywhere, anytime

ChatGPT's integration with the Apple Watch through the Petey AI assistant offers a convenient and user-friendly way to access the natural language processing capabilities of ChatGPT directly from your wrist. With the ability to input queries through typing or voice dictation and the option to quickly share answers with others, Petey offers a seamless and efficient way to interact with ChatGPT. Additionally, Petey's built-in sharing feature makes it easy to send responses via Messages or email to recent message recipients.

    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”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      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.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “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.
