If you are a regular user of the bitten apple, it is likely that you have been frustrated more than once with Siri. Despite the number of years Siri has been around, the assistant has lagged far behind its most direct competition (Alexa or Google Assistant, for example). Luckily, a developer has come to the rescue and created a shortcut that will allow us to use ChatGPT from our iPhone.
ChatGPT continues to be one of the most popular and interesting new features in the technology market, and for good reason. OpenAI’s generative model has proven to be a very useful tool with many interesting uses, such as, for example, this shortcut that we will show you below. You will be able to replace Siri with ChatGPT in just a few steps.
The developer Yue Yang has been responsible for creating this shortcut, which although it does not completely replace Siri, uses it to forward your questions to ChatGPT. In this case, Siri would act as an intermediary between the artificial intelligence and the user. In addition, it works on almost any device that integrates Siri such as iPhones, iPads or Macs.
How do I install the shortcut on my device?
The first thing you need before getting started is to have an active OpenAI account in order to use ChatGPT. Signing up is as easy as accessing the official OpenAI website and following all the steps on the screen. Once created, visit this page below to log in with your API key. If you don’t know where it is, simply go to your OpenAI profile and click on the View API Keys option. Then select the Create a new secret key option.
You’re probably wondering what the heck an API key is. It is an identifier code used to authenticate a user to a service. This tool is what we need for Siri to be able to use ChatGPT.
Once you have your API key, you must go to Yue Yang’s GitHub page from the device you want ChatGPT to use. From there, you will need to download the shortcut (make sure it is the latest version).
When you open the shortcut, it will ask for your API key. Finally, the only thing left to do is to designate a phrase that activates the Siri with ChatGPT. Unfortunately, the shortcut currently only works in English and we do not know if there will be a Spanish version. However, it is worth a try as you will be able to make use of all the ChatGPT features just by using your voice.
