Microsoft announced that it has made available OpenAI’s multimodal model GPT-4o to developers on its Azure AI.

Microsoft announced Microsoft Build 2024, the firm’s developer conference.

Now, developers wishing to explore GPT-4o on the Microsoft Cloud platform can do so by using Azure AI Studio and its API.

Azure AI Studio provides a playground for developers using up-to-date tools backed by Azure like GPT-4 Turbo and now GPT-4o.

At this moment, all image and vision capabilities of GPT-4o are accessible via OpenAI’s API and ChatGPT. However, the eagerly awaited Voice Mode is expected in a few weeks. This is true for accessing GPT-4o through both Azure AI Studio and Microsoft API.

The blog post on the Microsoft tech community hub stated that audio capabilities are not available for the time being.

Audio functionality in Azure AI is still not known while Satya Nadella of Microsoft provided some hints about possible uses of GPT-4o through Copilot. For example, one could share your screen or session with Copilot powered by GPT-4o and then ask it to help you play Minecraft.

Alternatively, Mashable’s Alex Perry suggests that if you’re having trouble with Minecraft, "you can either play the game for 10 minutes or just Google it."

Explaining what developers can do with GPT-4o on Azure AI, Nadella said, "One of the coolest things is how any app, any website can essentially be turned into a full multimodal full duplex conversational canvas."
