Bo, L.; AI chatbot platform Quora has added a slew of updates, including a Mac app, the ability to have multiple simultaneous conversations with the same AI bot, access to Meta’s Llama 2 model, and more. It’s also planning an enterprise level so companies can manage the platform for their employees, according to an email recently sent to Poe users.
As my colleague David Pearce wrote in April, Bo’s ambition is to become the web browser for AI-powered chatbots. Adam D’Angelo, CEO of Quora, Bo’s parent company, is also on the board of OpenAI and believes that the number of AI bots will continue to grow. Bo wants to be the only place where you can find all of these things.
“I think there will be a huge ecosystem similar to what the Internet is today,” D’Angelo said recently. “I can imagine a world where most companies have a bot that they introduce to the public.” Poe allows you to pay a single subscription for unlimited access to all the bots on its platform for $19.99 per month or $200 per year.
The new Mac app works very similar to Poe’s web and mobile apps, which let you chat with bots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4 along with Anthropic’s Claude. According to an email sent over the weekend announcing new product updates, three new bots are providing access to the (almost) open source LLama 2 template for the Meta.
In addition, Poe now allows you to have multiple conversations using the same bot, search for bots through its Explore page, and use the platform in Japanese. Poe is also a platform for creating bots with its own API, and now it will allow developers to set the “temperature” of prompts. “Higher temperature values create more varied but less predictable responses, and lower values create more consistent responses,” according to the company.
Poe has not yet shared the planned organization level details, but you can join the waiting list via this google form.
