OpenAI is delaying the launch of its Voice Mode until July

OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT, said on Tuesday that it is delaying the release of its voice mode feature by a month until July due to technical issues.

The company had originally planned to roll out real-time voice chat to a small group of ChatGPT Plus users in late June, but said it was delayed because it needed time to reach its deployment standard.

“For example, we are improving the model's ability to detect and reject specific content. We are also working on improving the user experience and preparing our infrastructure to scale to millions of users while maintaining real-time responses,” OpenAI said in a statement. On the social media platform X.

The feature will initially be made available to a small group of users to collect feedback. The company said it will be made available to all Plus users in the fall, subject to security and background checks.

OpenAI is also working on introducing new video and screen sharing features.

In May, the company announced that it would launch a new AI model called GPT-4o, capable of conducting real-life voice conversation and interacting with text and images. This is the latest step the company is taking to stay ahead of the race to dominate emerging artificial intelligence technology.

The new voice capabilities will allow users to speak into ChatGPT and receive real-time responses without delay, as well as pause ChatGPT while speaking – both features of real-life conversations that pose challenges for AI voice assistants.
