Brave is launching its AI assistant on iPhone and iPad

Brave announced Wednesday that it will offer its AI assistant, called Leo, to iPhone and iPad users. The AI ​​assistant allows users to ask questions, summarize pages, create content and much more. The iOS rollout follows the launch of the AI ​​assistant on Android and desktop.

Leo’s iOS launch brings voice-to-text functionality, which is not available in the Android version of the AI ​​assistant. With this feature, users can say things out loud and convert them to text, eliminating the need to type queries or questions. Brave claims that this additional capability makes it easier to interact with AI.

In addition to summarizing pages or videos, Leo can answer questions about the content he reads, generate detailed written reports, translate or rewrite pages, create transcriptions of video or audio content, and write code. By providing access to a built-in AI assistant, Brave hopes that users will not turn to ChatGPT or other similar services.

Leo includes access to Mixtral 8x7B, Anthropic’s Claude Instant, and Meta’s Llama 2 13B. Brave has set Mixtral 8x7B as the default LLM for Leo, but users have the option to select another LLM or upgrade to Leo Premium for higher pricing limits for $14.99 per month.

Brave isn’t the only browser company to launch an AI assistant; Opera launched an AI assistant called Aria last year. The product was built in collaboration with OpenAI and features a chatbot-like interface that allows people to ask questions and receive instant answers.

Brave Leo for iOS is now available to all iOS users who have updated to version 1.63. To access Leo, open the browser, start typing in the address bar, then select “Ask Leo.” Leo is an opt-in feature and can be disabled via app settings.
