Imagine a world where you can engage with AI language models using nothing but your voice. Well, guess what? That future is here, and it's more exciting than ever!

ChatGPT and Grammarly have stepped up their game by introducing AI voice chat assistants. No more tapping away at your keyboard—now, you can simply speak your thoughts into existence.

In this article, you’ll learn all about AI voice assistants and how to use these tools to increase productivity.

How Does ChatGPT's Voice Chat Work?

ChatGPT's latest voice feature uses an advanced text-to-speech model that can produce audio resembling human speech just from text and a brief sample of spoken words. 

In other words, you can use your voice to have a conversation with ChatGPT. It’s like having a knowledgeable assistant who is always ready to help!

ChatGPT’s voice chat is currently available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

How Does Grammarly's Voice Composer Work?

Grammarly's Voice Composer is a new feature designed to improve your writing on iPhone and iPad. 

Voice Composer transforms spoken words into text with advanced speech recognition and Artificial Intelligence. Let’s learn more about how this tool works.

Convert speech into polished text

Voice Composer is not just about converting speech into text; it also refines your speech by removing unnecessary filler words like "uh" and "um." This process reduces the need for manual editing and helps you focus on communicating your thoughts naturally and without interruptions.

Transcribe with an AI co-creator

One of Voice Composer's most useful features is its ability to act as an AI co-creator. You can provide brief spoken prompts, and Voice Composer generates detailed written content.

Take, for example, the task of creating a report on market trends. By simply stating, "Generate a report outlining recent market trends for the tech industry," Voice Composer springs into action, delivering an in-depth report. 

This approach means you can skip the traditional brainstorming, planning, and typing phases.

Now that we understand the capabilities of Grammarly's Voice Composer, let's dive into how to use the tool.
