OpenAI has officially launched its ChatGPT desktop app for macOS users, enabling seamless access to the AI assistant. However, the release of its much-anticipated advanced voice mode has been postponed.

The advanced voice mode, which attracted significant attention due to its striking similarity to Scarlett Johansson’s virtual character in the movie "Her," was a key highlight of OpenAI's Spring Update event. During the event, OpenAI also unveiled new video and screen sharing capabilities, promising their rollout in the near future.

OpenAI has now announced a revised timeline, indicating that it will need an additional month to refine the voice mode to meet its high standards for safety and reliability. The company plans to launch an alpha version to a select group of ChatGPT Plus subscribers next month, with broader access expected in the fall. A critical focus area for improvement is enhancing the system’s ability to "detect and refuse certain content."

In addition to the voice mode, OpenAI's event showcased new features aimed at enhancing user interaction, such as video and screen sharing. However, the company has provided no specific dates for these features, stating again that their release will depend on achieving their safety and reliability standards.

For now, macOS users can enjoy the new desktop app, which allows ChatGPT to be accessed from anywhere on the screen using the Option + Space keystroke. A Windows version of the app is expected to be available later this year.
