💡 Quick Guide

Unleash Perplexity’s Full Potential

Perplexity is an invaluable AI-powered search engine that instantly delivers precise, well-researched answers on a huge range of topics… but could you be using it better?

Fine-Tune Searches with ‘Search Focus’

Get more relevant answers by using Search Focus, which narrows down the sources (e.g., academic articles, YouTube videos, Reddit, Wolfram Alpha calculations, & more) Perplexity uses to generate your results.

How To Use: Hit ‘Focus’ in the bottom left of the search bar. Select your desired option from the dropdown menu.

Organize & Collaborate with ‘Collections’

Enhance efficiency and collaboration by organizing your threads into (optionally sharable) collections. This one has been an absolute game-changer for us. (See an example here).

How To Use: To create or access collections, select ‘Library’ from the left side menu. See your collections on the right side of the page. Select the ‘+’ option to create a new collection. Alternatively, create a collection by typing a question into the search bar, and then selecting the ‘+ Collection’ button above your question.

Tailor Outputs By Personalizing Your Profile

Similar to ChatGPT’s custom instructions, by inputting your preferences (e.g., language, interests, values, preferred search response format or tone, & more) into your profile, Perplexity can use this information to offer you personalized results.

How To Use: Next to your username in the bottom left corner of the screen, click the ‘Settings’ icon. Select ‘Profile’ in the top right corner. Fill in your answers, and hit ‘Save’.

Leverage Perplexity in Other Apps Via Its API

Integrate Perplexity’s AI capabilities directly into your applications and workflows. For example, developers can create apps that automatically generate reports or summaries by querying Perplexity’s API. 🙀

How To Use: Learn more here & here.

Additional Useful Features

  • Don’t allow Perplexity use your threads to train itself. Select ‘Settings' > ‘AI Data Retention’ > Toggle off.

  • Choose which LLMs & image generation models you’d like to use (pro users only). Select ‘Settings’ > ‘AI Model’ or ‘Image Generation Model’ > Select from the dropdown.

😂 AI Fun

Want To Write Better Prompts? Play This Game.

Google’s free, interactive Say What You See game makes learning how to write effective prompts actually… fun. 🤯

Say What You See Game

How It Works

  • During each round, you’re shown an image, and you have three tries to write a text prompt that could produce a similar image.

  • As you play, you get tips for improving your prompts.

  • To progress to the next round, you need to receive a percentage similarity score that increases with each level (e.g., 50% for Level 1, 60% for Level 2, etc.).
