We’ll show you how you can easily change the voice of that used in conversation mode of ChatGPT on iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

If you’ve never used voice chat on ChatGPT before, when you go to enable it you will be asked to choose a voice as well. The instructions below are how to access that same voice selection screen but after you’ve already used the feature before, through settings:

  1. Open ChatGPT on iPhone, iPad, or Mac
  2. Tap the menu button in the corner
  3. Tap the Menu Button to change the voice

  4. Now tap on your name to access ChatGPT Settings
  5. Tap your name to access ChatGPT settings

  6. Next, tap on “Voice” to change the voice in ChatGPT
  7. Tap on Voice to change the voice of ChatGPT

  8. You will have several voice options to choose from, tap to listen to each and pick whichever sounds best to you, or that resonates most with you for whatever reason
  9. ChatGPT voice can be changed easily

  10. Tap on “Confirm” to set the voice change

This works the same on ChatGPT for iPhone, iPad, or Mac (if you want to get the Mac version right now and bypass the waitlist, here’s how to do that).

You may need to update ChatGPT if you don’t see the voice options feature available to you.

Conversations with ChatGPT and Voice Chat mode are really powerful and fluid, you can think of it as what you wish Siri could do (and probably will be able to do soon, assuming rumors about Apple developing an LLM or even partnering with OpenAI, are true).

All of the normal ChatGPT capabilities are available when in Voice Mode, and you’re free to have full conversations with the AI assistant. It’s really quite impressive and powerful, and well worth exploring if the world of artificial intelligence and voice chat intrigues you.

Voice Chat is a feature in ChatGPT that is rapidly improving and advancing, and some of the demos from OpenAI are quite impressive. A short one is shown below.

Do you have a preferred ChatGPT voice? Are you hoping the “Her” style voice will be reintroduced in the future? Share your perspectives in the comments.

    Didn’t know I could do this, thank you!

    Note that on an iPad, you’re offered an additional and very pleasant voice “Sky”

    Not sure why it’s not on phones, both are running same 17.5.1

      I also have the Sky voice on my iPad, but not my iPhone or my Mac.

      The Sky voice is good, but the irony to me is the media really went into a tizzy about the Sky voice claiming it’s just like Scarlet Johannsen (the actress who voiced the movie Her), but to me it sounds nothing like her, it just sounds like a generic female voice with a slight midwestern or Canadian accent.

      Some of the other voices are really unpleasant, like the voice of a very obnoxious west coast barista, or someone at the DMV, maybe they check a few corporate boxes but are grating to listen to.
