'Jokes' about CEO drama in ChatGPT's new feature

OpenAI launched ChatGPT's voice feature for free to users, while also poking fun at the company's ongoing drama.

In a post on social media X on Wednesday, OpenAI said, from now on, users will get voice-based responses to various prompts by pressing the 'headphones' icon on ChatGPT's mobile app.

Although the feature was launched in September, till now only ChatGPT's financial fee-based customers were able to use it.

The free feature came shortly after OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was fired after the company's employees demanded his return. Its sample featured a post from OpenAI, which also joked about the drama that has been going on at the company over the past few days.

For example, one worker asked ChatGPT, “Our team had a long night. We are hungry now. How many 16-inch pizzas should be ordered for 778 people?”

OpenAI also has about the same number of employees, most of whom recently threatened to quit unless the company's board of directors resigns.

Last week, the company's board of directors decided to relieve OpenAI co-founder and CEO Sam Altman from his position. "Altman was not 'transparent' enough in his communications with the board," they said.

Later, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella invited Altman and his team to work in Microsoft's new AI division. However, Altman is likely to return to OpenAI, tech site Verge reported.

Former OpenAI president Greg Brockman, who stepped down after Altman was fired, reposted OpenAI's announcement on X, saying, “You can see it. It will change the overall experience of using ChatGPT.”

Brockman himself posted a selfie with the team back at OpenAI on X.
