OpenAI’s ChatGPT conversational chatbot is sweeping the tech industry, and a new Apple Watch app called Petey lets you ask it questions right on your wrist.
If you haven’t been following, ChatGPT is a next-generation language model that responds to natural language input in a manner that is human-like. The chatbot is able to respond to a wide range of prompts and answer a wide range of questions because it is trained on a large corpus of internet-sourced text.
The Petey app lets you use voice-to-text input or typing questions into your Apple Watch to ask OpenAI’s chatbot questions. Additionally, because it is a conversational experience, you will be able to continue interacting with the chatbot in relation to the questions that it has already responded to.
Petey has a watch face complication built in, making it very simple to access without having to open any of your apps. Because of this, it is a useful alternative to asking Siri questions, which nine out of ten times result in a series of web results being sent to your iPhone regardless.
Petey can provide an answer to your question if all you have is your watch, and the responses are frequently far superior to what any digital assistant can do. With Text to Speech, you can even have the responses read to you aloud, and you can share the results of your conversation via text, email, or social media.
Petey, developed by Hidde van de Ploeg and formerly known as watchGPT (the name was changed due to trademark issues), is currently available for $4.99 on the App Store. The app runs on watchOS 9, so it should work on Apple Watch Series 4 and newer models. Currently, it supports 14 languages, and more are expected to be added in the future.
