The development ensured that the platform will no longer remain confined to information dating back to 2021.

"ChatGPT can now browse the internet to provide you with current and authoritative information, complete with direct links to sources. It is no longer limited to data before September 2021," Open AI posted on X.

The company recently rolled out the new voice and image capabilities in ChatGPT.  

In a statement, Open AI said: "They offer a new, more intuitive type of interface by allowing you to have a voice conversation or show ChatGPT what you’re talking about."

"Voice and image give you more ways to use ChatGPT in your life. Snap a picture of a landmark while traveling and have a live conversation about what’s interesting about it. When you’re home, snap pictures of your fridge and pantry to figure out what’s for dinner (and ask follow up questions for a step by step recipe). After dinner, help your child with a math problem by taking a photo, circling the problem set, and having it share hints with both of you," read the statement.

Open AI said it is rolling out voice and images in ChatGPT to Plus and Enterprise users over the next two weeks.

Where can it be accessed?

Voice facility will be launched on iOS and Android (opt-in in your settings) and images will be available on all platforms.
