Copy a response or selected text

After you receive a response to your request, you can take a few actions on that response. One includes copying it or working with specific text from it. 

Long-press (tap and hold) the answer and do one of the following:

  • To copy the entire response, select Copy. This then places the text on your clipboard for you to paste where you like.
  • To work with certain text, pick Select Text. Then use the selection handles (dots) to capture the exact part of the response you want. You should see the shortcut toolbar display above your selected text where you can pick an action like Copy, Look Up, Translate, Search Web, Speak, or Share.

Provide feedback

To help ChatGPT, you can provide feedback when you receive a response. This is useful if you find the response to be correct or if you feel the opposite. The system learns from feedback so that it can provide better responses in the future.

Long-press the answer and choose either Good Response or Bad Response. You’ll then see a brief message at the top thanking you for your feedback.
