Are you wondering how to use ChatGPT with Siri on your iPhone? Scroll through this guide to learn everything about connecting Siri with ChatGPT.
How to ChatGPT on iPhone
You can effortlessly use ChatGPT on iPhone by adding it as a shortcut and using its API key. However, ChatGPT and Siri won’t work together on every iPhone.
So, before getting to the process of integrating ChatGPT with Siri, you must ensure that your device meets the requirements.
Requirements to Get ChatGPT to Work with Siri
To download and use ChatGPT with Siri, you need to get your device ready by fulfilling the following requirements.
Siri ChatGPT Shortcut
The first step to getting Siri and ChatGPT to work together on your iPhone is enabling the Siri shortcut. This is critical since you can only integrate ChatGPT with Siri with this shortcut.
Apple doesn’t officially allow users to use the Siri shortcut. However, you can still get the Siri shortcut by clicking this link: (https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/e3b3a71269364bbd9cadef9c7fefbba0). The Siri shortcut is Siri Pro, but you can rename the file to whatever you like. Remember, you only have to download the file from this link. Do not run it yet.
ChatGPT API Key
After downloading Siri Pro, it’s time to set up the ChatGPT API key. For that, follow the steps given below:
Step 1: Click the following link to visit the ChatGPT API keys page (https://platform.openai.com/account/api-keys).
Step 2: This will take you to your ChatGPT account. Log into your account if you are an existing user. If you haven’t created an account, sign up for a new one.
Step 3: Click the “Create a new Secret Key” button from the menu on the left side of your screen. This will generate a new secret key that can be linked to your Siri Pro.
Step 4: Copy the API key and store it in a safe place. Remember, you cannot copy the same key again. So, once you close the pop-up box, the key will change, and you must generate a new one.

How to Set up and Use ChatGPT with Siri on Your iPhone
Now that you have your Siri shortcut and ChatGPT API key, you can integrate Siri with ChatGPT. Here is the step-wise tutorial on setting up ChatGPT with Siri on your iPhone.

Siri and ChatGPT will function without hassle on your iPhone if you perform all the above steps correctly. However, the response of ChatGPT depends on the server load. If the server is overloaded, it may take longer for the app to respond.
Frequently Asked Questions
I followed all the above steps, but the shortcut gave no response. What do I do?

If you are an Android user, you’ll have to wait until a hack is discovered to use ChatGPT with your Android-based voice assistant.
The shortcut keeps telling me to add in your API key first. What do I do?
If you correctly add your ChatGPT API key in the text box, you won’t find any issues while using ChatGPT with Siri.
