ChatGPT can now read its responses aloud to you.

OpenAI announced Monday a new feature that lets its AI chatbot dictate its answers to you. The function could help users with accessibility needs as well as those who are multitasking or on the go.

The feature is available in the iOS and Android apps as well as the web version of ChatGPT. In the app, tap and hold ChatGPT's response and you'll see an option to "Read Aloud." On the web, this option appears below the response.

OpenAI's latest announcement comes amid heightened scrutiny of the company. Cofounder and former board member Elon Musk sued the firm, as well as two of its leaders, CEO Sam Altman and president Greg Brockman.

In his lawsuit, Musk's lawyers allege that OpenAI is betraying an original mission of being an open-source nonprofit.

His lawyers allege that OpenAI "has been transformed into a closed-source de facto subsidiary of the largest technology company in the world" and is "refining an AGI to maximize profits for Microsoft, rather than for the benefit of humanity." OpenAI and Microsoft have a $10 billion partnership.

OpenAI has not responded to a request for comment on the lawsuit, but Altman has tweeted some cryptic messages perhaps related to the matter.

"The hurricane turns faster and faster but it stays perfectly calm in the eye," he said in a tweet Sunday.
