The arrival of applications based on artificial intelligence have shaken the industry, so much so that even players like Google have begun to develop methods to discover what images have been generated through this technology. Names like ChatGPT, Bing chat, or others less known and of Spanish origin like LuzIA are familiar to all of us, but there are still some actors with something to say.
one of these is Perplexity AIa chatbot similar to OpenAI’s solution, allowing us to make any query. We can use it without spending a penny, and they are already developing an application for Google’s operating system.
This is Perplexity, the conversational search engine
Perplexity is nothing more than a conversational search engine or response engine, somewhat similar to other available options. This uses extensive language models, with which, together with the information available on the Internet, it manages to provide the user with precise answers.
Its main difference if we place it face to face with ChatGPT, is the availability of information. While the OpenAI product is limited in release to 2021, Perplexity AI is permanently connected to the Internet.
Therefore, get more information as well as being more up to date. In fact, it has its resemblance to the new Bing chat, co-developed by Microsoft and OpenAI and recently updated with news.
We only access your official Web sitewe see an interface that will be very familiar to us. We have a text field in the central part of the screen, where we will introduce our prompt to start a conversation. We found few differences with the rest of bots conversational at the design level, so we won’t have difficulties using it.
There’s no need create an account in this service, it is still convenient to do it because it gives us a key advantage. If we log in, compatible Google accounts, we can see a list called “Threads” (threads, in English) in which to see our latest conversations with the bot. Useful in case we want to recover some later.
Soon it will be easier to use it on mobile
How can we check on the website of Perplexity AIthere will soon be an app available for android mobilesso it’s a matter of time before using it on devices with our favorite operating system will be easier and more direct.
However, for now we can pull our header browser, since the web page is fully responsive, adapting to the smartphone screen. We have been testing it and although sometimes it behaves in a strange way (responding in English to questions asked in Spanish), the answers are fast and precise.
We could even say that it is not very far from the level seen in other tools of this style. On the other hand, the application that the Perplexity AI team is preparing will take a while, but if you are a restless user like us, you can sign up for the waiting list.
To do this, look at the notice at the bottom: if you have not registered, you will see two buttons to do so or to log in, while next to them you will see one labeled “Get Android App“. tap on itto access more information.
Then on the next screen, enter your email in the text field. Later, we click on “sign up” and ready, we will test the Android app before anyone else. If you can’t find the happy button, it will be as easy as following this linkthen we will follow the procedure explained above.
In short, here we have a new rival for ChatGPT, less known but as effective as such. Usable from a phone, comfortably, without restrictions and willing to answer all our questions. We don’t know if the future will bring him success, but has come to stay.
