Summary: Quora’s new AI chatbot app, Poe, enables users to ask questions and receive answers from a range of AI chatbots, essentially positioning itself as a menu of language-based models.
What is Poe by Quora?
Currently available for iOS and desktop, Poe’s range of chatbots includes ChatGPT, Sage and Dragonfly, as well as Anthropic’s Claude and Claude +. That makes Poe one of the only places where you can check out Anthropic’s well-rated new toolset (read more about Claude and “Constitutional AI” here).
Each chatbot has its own limitations; for example, Dragonfly may refuse to answer some questions, and Sage is built to reply is short, concise answers. Each bot comes with a short disclaimer about its limits, as well as the company behind it (Sage, Dragonfly, ChatGPT [3.5] and GPT-4 are powered by OpenAI, while Claude/Claude+ by Anthropic).
Poe also provides some prompt suggestions to get you started:

Poe offers a unique opportunity to switch between different models and compare the results. With the ability to access multiple models simultaneously, you can maximize your productivity and efficiency when it comes to simpler tasks – like having a roomful of brilliant experts at your fingertips, all working together to tackle your questions and tasks.
During our testing, we found that some of the test between bots were redundant, with many running on the powerful GPT-3.5. It’s also worth noting that the free plan has some limitations, especially when it comes to accessing top-tier models like GPT-4 and Claude+.
In addition to its impressive functionality, Poe also boasts a sleek and intuitive interface that is easy to use. It’s incredibly stable and reliable, ensuring that you can get the answers and insights you need without any downtime or glitches. Overall, Poe is a game-changing tool that is perfect for anyone looking to unlock the power of AI and explore the latest innovations in this rapidly evolving field.
