OpenAI is planning to halt the use of the Sky voice in the audible version of ChatGPT following user feedback indicating it closely resembled the voice of actress Scarlett Johansson.

According to a blog post, the company clarified that the voice, one of five available on ChatGPT, was provided by an actress and was not intended to be an “imitation” of Scarlett Johansson. Johansson famously portrayed a fictional virtual assistant in the film ‘Her’, which centers around a man who falls in love with an AI system.

The voices are included in OpenAI’s updated GPT-4o, launched earlier this month, which can respond to users’ verbal questions with audio replies.
