How to activate ChatGPT with Siri and save the response



Activate ChatGPT with Siri - The Mobile Spoon


TL; DR:

Looking for a way to activate ChatGPT with Siri using voice commands? There's a shortcut for that. 

Just ask Siri to run ChatGPT, ask your question using voice, get an answer, and store it as a note. 

Install Smart Siri

(Don't forget to place your API key in the right place 👇)

The long version + how to configure

I created this little shortcut (inspired by Fabian Heuwieser's post) to connect Siri to ChatGPT so I can use it on the move with voice commands. 

The shortcut does the following: 

  1. Prompts you to ask a question 
  2. Sends it to ChatGPT
  3. Reads the answer 
  4. Allows you to save the answer into a new Apple Note
Perfect for using ChatGPT while on the move. 


How to setup 

  1. First, copy your ChatGPT API key from here
  2. Then download the shortcut and add it to your shortcuts app. 
  3. Last, enter your API key in the designated placeholder (don't keep the brackets)

The shortcut should look like this (with your key in the text placeholder):

The first part of the script triggers the text dictation. Then it sends the dictated text to the API function and gets back the response. The response is then read by Siri, followed by a question: "Save answer?" 

If you choose to save, the whole text block will be added to a new note. 

That's it! 

Now you can talk to ChatGPT with the help of Siri 🙂.

When replacing the placeholder with the API key - replace the entire text (including the <> brackets)

Silly question. Do you have to pay for openai for this to work? I tried this but it gives me blank responsee.

Answering some of the questions here:

1. speech recognition should be turned on (mac or iPhone) - if you get an error - check how to turn it in he settings.

2. API key - you need to have an active OpenAI account and turn on the API key option, so you can grab the key and paste it in the script.
