Poe’s AI chatbot app empowers users to create custom bots with new prompts
Quora, the popular Q&A site, has introduced Poe, a new feature on its app that allows users to create their own chatbots using prompts combined with existing bots as a foundation. Poe initially supported a handful of general knowledge chatbots, including Sage and Dragonfly, powered by OpenAI technology, and Claude, powered by Anthropic. Poe introduced subscriptions last month, allowing users to pay for access to more powerful bots based on new language models, such as GPT-4 from OpenAI and Claude+ from Anthropic. Users can now build their own bots by using prompts to direct a chatbot to perform highly specific tasks.
Users can now create their own bots based on Claude or ChatGPT using the new feature. The bot will have its own unique URL once created, which will open the bot directly in Poe. Users can access the bots through Poe’s iOS or Android mobile web apps, as well as its desktop web interface. When users find a bot they like, they can follow it by clicking a button so they can easily return to it later.
