Arc Search Introduces Call Arc: Voice-Activated Q&A

Arc Search, the latest iPhone app from The Browser Company, has launched Call Arc, an AI-powered feature allowing users to ask questions and receive instant voice responses by simulating a phone call. Users simply open the app, hold their phone to their ear, and ask questions, receiving immediate answers through an engaging animated interface.

For instance, you can ask, “How long should I cook spaghetti?” or “Why should I keep some of the pasta water?” If you’re out shopping, you might ask, “What’s the best substitute for buttermilk?” and get a quick response without needing to type. Launched in January, Arc Search also offers a “Browse for me” function, using models from OpenAI to compile information from multiple web pages into a single, user-friendly page.
