If you’ve been looking for more than just traditional search engines, you may have turned to Perplexity. The app allows users to ask questions and receive quick, accurate answers from a carefully selected set of sources, all powered by ChatGPT. Now, a new software update is making Perplexity AI even better.

Perplexity Pages allows you to transform your research into visually engaging and comprehensive content. Whether you are creating detailed articles, reports, or informative guides, Perplexity Pages brings your ideas to life. This new tool simplifies organizing and sharing information, giving you more control. You also have the option to publish your work to Perplexity’s library of user-generated content, where you can showcase your expertise.

Designed for educators, researchers, and hobbyists, Perplexity Pages is customizable and adaptable to match your target audience, allowing for easy article structure adjustments.

To begin using Perplexity Pages, you start with a blank page. You then describe your topic under the heading “What’s your Page about?” After choosing your target audience from “Anyone,” “Beginners,” or “Experts,” Perplexity AI will generate the content.
