They are both an electrochemical cell in which a spontaneous chemical reaction is used to generate an electric current.
Galvanic and Voltaic are two different names for the same electrochemical cell, both converting chemical energy into electrical energy.

A Galvanic cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy. A voltaic cell is an electrochemical cell that uses a chemical reaction to produce electrical energy.
