Stay up-to-date with the newest enhancements in the Curiosity app and get the best possible user experience.

Welcome, fellow curious minds!

We’ve been working hard these past weeks, and now we’re thrilled to share with you the latest feature releases and innovations on Curiosity — your favorite all-in-one search app. 😉

Stay in the know and let’s explore together all the exciting updates that will help you work faster, smarter, and more efficiently!

Curiosity: your AI assistant, search engine, and much more!

1. Local GPT-style chat

*Choose your+ preferred model, including local processing options, for enhanced features and data security

Take control of your AI Assistant within Curiosity

Since the release of ChatGPT last year, we’ve all been discovering just how useful AI Assistants are.

Curiosity has included an AI Assistant for some time. It lets you summarize, rewrite, and translate text, talk to your files, and even auto-reply to emails. Up till now, the AI Assistant has been based on OpenAI’s ChatGPT-3.5 model.

Today we’re delighted to announce that you can now select which model to use for the AI Assistant, including models running locally on your computer. That means you can get the AI Assistant’s features while processing all your data on your local device, by selecting one of our Llama2 integrations in Preferences.

⚠️ Please note that you’ll need powerful hardware and some disk space to run Llama2. We’ll be including newer, lighter models as soon they’re released with public license*s.

2. More AI Assistant features

Interact with the entire file or just snippets of text

Select, summarize, translate, and explain any excerpt of your documents with Curiosity

Interacting with your files and messages in intuitive ways is where AI Assistants truly shine.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce new features to Curiosity that allow you to select specific text in your files and use the AI Assistant to interact with the selection. 🤖

With this update, you can now leverage the AI Assistant to summarize, list key points, translate, and explain the selected text.

Of course, you can still interact with the entire file using chat, just like before.

Learn how the AI Assistant works and keeps your data safe.

3. Rename Apps and Change Icons

Stop confusing** different accounts*+ from the same app within Curiosity

Better visualize all your accounts and spaces in Curiosity

If you have multiple apps that look identical in Curiosity, such as several Gmail accounts, worry not — we’ve got you covered!

Introducing the ability to rename App Spaces and change icons, allowing you to customize and differentiate them. 🎨

Now you can easily transform “Gmail” into “MyWorkEmail” or any name you prefer for each account. You can even assign each of your apps a unique custom icon to make it stand out.

To rename an App space, simply click the three dots next to the app and select “Manage”. Then you can update the App’s appearance. Remember to click the “Save” button to save your changes.

4. CMD + SPACE as shortcut on MacOS

A shout-out to all our MacOS users out there!

You can now set CMD+SPACE as the shortcut for the Command Bar, adding a quick and convenient way to access its features. ⚡️

This popular shortcut on MacOS provides an alternative to our default ALT+SPACE shortcut.

This update has been a long time coming and we’re delighted to ship it! We can’t wait for you to experience the enhanced functionality it brings.
