Petey – the app that brings Chat-GPT to your Apple Watch and iPhone – has acquired a serious replace that brings GPT-4 and Apple Music assist to this system.
The paid AI helper provides iPhone and Apple Watch customers a major improve over the Siri assistant that comes preloaded on the very best iPhones. Petey – due to its ChatGPT assist – is usually extra versatile and capable of assist with extra duties than Apple’s extra inflexible providing. Although the in-development app isn’t excellent – as with all AI it will probably make errors, and a few of its features are restricted.
Now, with the launch of Petey 2.1, a few of these limitations are beginning to be lifted. By connecting Petey to your Apple Music account the AI will have the ability to create playlists and add songs to your library – permitting it that will help you create your subsequent digital mixtape.
We haven’t had the prospect to check out the characteristic for ourselves but, however one hiccup you may face is if you happen to’re attempting to create a playlist of the newest hits, as GhatGPT’s information – the identical info base utilized by Petey – cuts off round late 2021. So chances are you’ll discover that Petey isn’t the very best at recommending tracks launched in 2022 or 2023 as its information on them will likely be very restricted.
Living proof, after we requested ChatGPT to suggest “music launched prior to now month” on April 25, 2023, it pitched the album Montero by Lil Nas X and Lorde’s Photo voltaic Energy which have been launched in September 2021 and August 2021 respectively.
That mentioned, if you happen to’re okay with lacking out on something printed prior to now couple of years you must have enjoyable getting Petey to pitch songs primarily based on the genres you like, discover music that’s much like your favourite tracks, or discover tunes that comply with a theme of your selection – you would ask Petey to create a robot-themed playlist to have fun its newfound Apple Music powers.
GPT-4 upgrades are right here, for a worth
The opposite huge enchancment that comes on this replace is GPT-4 assist, permitting Petey to make use of probably the most up-to-date model of OpenAI’s GPT giant language mannequin framework. In accordance with its creators, GPT-4 is 40% extra more likely to produce factual responses, and is ready to full duties extra effectively in comparison with its predecessor, GPT-3. This could enhance Petey’s reliability – although we’d nonetheless suggest taking its data with a pinch of salt.
Sadly, Petey’s GPT-4 assist gained’t come free of charge. You’ll have to subscribe in-app or purchase a one-time buy to unlock full entry to GPT features – or you should utilize your personal GPT API key to unlock the instruments when you have one.
As with every work-in-progress app, anticipate there to be some points with Petey’s skills; however if you happen to’ve been desirous to mess around with AI chatbots in your iPhone, this appears like an excellent ChatGPT different.
