Brave has unveiled its AI assistant, Leo, for iPhone and iPad users, extending the functionality previously available on Android and desktop platforms.

Leo enables users to ask questions, summarize content, generate written reports, and perform various other tasks. Notably, the iOS release introduces voice-to-text capability, a feature absent in the Android version.

This feature allows users to verbally dictate queries, eliminating the need for manual typing and enhancing interaction with the AI.

Leo’s capabilities include summarizing pages or videos, answering questions, translating or rewriting content, transcribing audio or video, and even writing code. By integrating Leo directly into the browser, Brave aims to offer users a convenient alternative to external services like ChatGPT.

Leo leverages advanced language models, including Mixtral 8x7B, Anthropic’s Claude Instant, and Meta’s Llama 2 13B. While Mixtral 8x7B serves as the default language model for Leo, users can opt for other models or upgrade to Leo Premium for enhanced features, such as higher rate limits, for $14.99 per month.

Brave joins Opera in introducing an AI assistant; Opera’s Aria, developed in partnership with OpenAI, offers similar functionality with a chatbot-style interface.

Leo for iOS is accessible to all users running version 1.63 of the browser. To utilize Leo, users can initiate a search in the address bar and select “Ask Leo.” The feature is opt-in and can be disabled in the app settings.
