The GPT-4o ‘Omni’ Model Will Be Available Next Week Free of Charge

IBL News | New York

The new OpenAI’s GPT-4o app that responds with voice-to-speech commands, images, and video will be available this Monday free of charge for smartphones and desktop computers.

This significant development transforms ChatGPT into a fast, conversational voice assistant with natural dialogue.

Experts see this tool as another setback for Google Assistant, Apple Siri, and Amazon Alexa.

The San Francisco artificial intelligence start-up unveiled GPT-4o this Monday.

Videos showcasing its capabilities were posted on OpenAI’s website.

“We are looking at the future of the interaction between ourselves and machines,” said Mira Murati, OpenAI’s CTO.

OpenAI said it would gradually share the technology with users “over the coming weeks.” This is the first time it has offered ChatGPT as a desktop application.

The new app—which researchers call “multimodal AI”—cannot generate video. But it can still create images that represent the frames of a video.
