ChatGPT lands on the Apple Watch and Siri should be concerned

Rate this post

Just a few months after integrating into Bing, ChatGPT has made the leap to iOS as a third-party app exclusive to the Apple Watch.

It’s called Petey – AI assistant (opens in new tab) and it was created by developer Hidde van de Ploeg (listed as Modum BV in the App Store). It was originally known as watchGPT, but due to trademark issues with the acronym “GPT”, the name had to be changed. Looking at one demo video posted by the developer on Twitter, Petey works the same way as Siri. You open the app, ask it a question and it replies via text-to-speech in seconds. To continue with a question, swipe down on the watch face and tap Answer. Unlike Apple’s own Siri, as an assistant Petey can give quite complex answers, such as giving steps how to catch a fish.
