I don’t know if ChatGPT is here to stay, but its tremendous utility and its recently announced paid version suggest that the future lies somewhere. But also the present, since It can be a tremendously useful tool for day to day. From simple queries about event dates to summarizing texts and even creating original stories.
and since recently it has become my iPhone assistant, much to the chagrin of Siri, although this is still essential. And it is that thanks to a shortcut created by the colleagues of Applesfera, I have managed that the Apple assistant can give me quick access to the ChatGPT tool, either by voice or by text.
“Hey Siri, ChatGPT”
The end of everything is to use that voice command. Before, touch configure the shortcut to work. Luckily, it is very simple and everything happens by downloading the shortcut on the iPhone. Once you have it installed, you must follow these steps:
- Open the drop-down menu (the three stripes in the upper right corner) and click on your name (at the bottom).
- Among the options that appear, click on View API keys.
- Click now on Create new secret key and once the code appears, copy it (it can be done quickly by pressing the green icon that appears next to it).
- Now open the Shortcuts app and click on the three dots that appear next to the ChatGPT shortcut.
- Click on the first text box that appears and replace “YOUR API KEY HERE” with the code you copied earlier.
- Click on Okay to finish editing the shortcut.
And ready. Once you do this, you can invoke ChatGPT by voice with the classic “Hey Siri” command. If you kept the same shortcut name, just say “ChatGPT” after that. At that moment Siri will say “ask me a question” and there you can drop your request to the artificial intelligence of OpenAI.
ChatGPT with Siri isn’t as instant as Siri, but it doesn’t take too long.
It should be said that responses are not instant, as they may take a few seconds. This is somewhat understandable having to connect Siri with the OpenAI system. In fact, occasionally it may fail, always depending on our Internet connection and how collapsed the servers may be. However, and at least in my personal case, it never takes more than 15-30 seconds.
Needless to say that the ‘classic’ Siri will continue to exist on your iPhone if you set this shortcut. And it is that, if you do not tell him that of “ChatGPT”, the answers that he will offer will be the ones that the series brings.
