Poe on Quora is introducing subscriptions so that you can communicate with a GPT-4-powered bot

Yesterday, rival Anthropic announced Claude, a ChatGPT competitor to OpenAI’s new GPT-4 model. In a related announcement, Quora stated that its Poe chatbot app will soon have a paid version that will allow you to communicate with bots powered by these models.

Poe subscriptions cost $19.99 per month or $199.99 annually, and you can only currently purchase them from an Apple silicon- or iOS-powered Mac. The business is focused on enabling online purchases for the premium plan.

Poe was initially released by Quora as a closed beta in December of last year and then made available to all iOS users last month.

Adam D’Angelo, the CEO of Quora, said on Twitter that chatbots powered by Claude+ and GPT-4 (version 1.2) can be used to talk to paid users. Unfortunately, you are only able to ask a limited number of questions to these models on the premium tier. Poe limits the monthly usage to 1000 Claude 1.2 messages and 300 GPT-4 messages. After a user surpasses the monthly cap, “bot availability or quality may be limited,” according to the service.

At the moment, free users can also test and ask these models one question per day without any cost. D’Angelo said that users can have unlimited interactions with other bots like ChatGPT, Claude, Sage, and Dragonfly. Poe describes these models as having different roles and features. Here is what the company says about these bots:

    • Claude tends to be better at many creative writing tasks, but it is more likely to refuse to answer questions.
    • Claude+ is significantly better than Claude, especially in non-English languages. In English, it generates more in-depth answers than Claude as well.
    • Sage and ChatGPT tend to be better at languages other than English and at programming-related tasks.
    • Dragonfly tends to have shorter responses, and it can be easier to get Dragonfly to follow instructions when given examples in the input.
    • GPT-4 is a big improvement over ChatGPT, and it is currently the most powerful language model in the world.It is particularly strong at creative writing, problem-solving (e.g., math and physics), and instruction following.

Notably, models like Sage and Claude don’t have knowledge of events post-2021, and Dragonfly might refuse to answer some questions. When you start a conversation with a bot, the app shows you a warning saying that it might make incorrect statements so that you don’t take the answers at face value. These are some safeguards against manipulating bots into saying problematic or incorrect things.

Poe and Quora do not yet share any direct connections. But, the business announced last month that its answers might be posted on the Q&A platform with more than 400 million monthly visitors if Poe’s generated content met specific criteria.

The GPT-4 powered subscription that enables an AI-based instructor to learn languages was also launched by Duolingo together with Poe. Microsoft also broke its secrecy vow and acknowledged that GPT-4 was being used by Bing all along. Also, the daily limit for messages in the Bing chat has been raised to 150. According to Khan Academy, an AI assistant that will support teachers with administrative responsibilities as a teaching assistant is now being tested. On the other hand, students can utilize it to offer story ideas and receive math assistance.

We will see more consumer applications use this technology given that OpenAI and Anthropic just made announcements regarding new bots.
