The advanced voice mode for ChatGPT, which caused a dispute with Scarlett Johansson, was a key feature of OpenAI’s Spring Update event. The event also introduced a desktop app for ChatGPT.

OpenAI now states it needs one more month to prepare an alpha version of the voice mode for a small group of ChatGPT Plus subscribers. They plan to make it available to all Plus customers in the fall. OpenAI is working on improving the ability to detect and refuse certain content.

Regarding the new video and screen sharing features shown at the event, OpenAI promises to update on the timeline. They initially planned to release these capabilities in the coming weeks. Now, the company says the exact timeline depends on meeting their high safety and reliability standards.
