What is Pro Search?


You need answers, and you need them now. But sometimes, you need more than a quick search can offer. Enter Perplexity Copilot, your new digital assistant for in-depth answers.

Your Conversational Search Companion

Powered by the most powerful AI models like GPT-4 and Claude 2, Pro search is in a league of its own. Unlike basic search engines that shoot back quick answers, Pro search chats with you. It asks. It listens. It refines its search based on what you really want. The result? Spot-on answers, virtually every time.

What sets Pro search apart from a normal search?

First, it "gets" you. By asking follow-up questions, it hones in on what you're really after. No more drowning in irrelevant info. Second, it sums up the best findings for you, so no more sifting through pages of text. Third, it pulls from a universe of sources—academic papers, news, forums, you name it—to give you the full picture.

How it works

  • Start by asking a question you know will save you time and effort. That's where Pro search shines.

  • To fine-tune your search, Pro search engages you with clarifying questions. This ensures you get what you're actually after.

  • Once it gets what you’re asking, Pro search scours a vast array of sources to ensure relevance and quality.

  • What you get is a succinct answer. No fluff, all substance.

  • Want to know more? Every source is just a click or tap away for deeper exploration.
