It is always advisable to double check and triple check information while communicating with these chatbots before acting on it.

On a related note, OpenAI announced that ChatGPT can now have a voice conversation with its users. "In ChatGPT, we are starting to roll out new speech and picture features. By enabling voice communication or displaying content on ChatGPT, they provide a new, more user-friendly interface," the business said in a blog post.

Imagine you are traveling and you see an interesting landmark. Instead of just looking at it, you can take a picture and then start a live conversation with ChatGPT about what makes that landmark special. Similarly, you may take photographs of the items in your fridge and pantry so that you can refer to them later on when you are at home and unsure of what to do for supper. You may use ChatGPT to determine what recipes you can prepare using those items.
