Quora’s Poe introduces new feature allowing users to create and share web apps

Are you ready to dive into the world of AI-powered chatbots and interactive apps? In this blog post, we’ll be exploring the latest feature launched by Poe, Quora’s innovative subscription-based platform. Let’s take a closer look at Previews, a tool that allows users to create interactive apps directly in chats with chatbots like Anthropic’s Claude and OpenAI’s GPT-4o.

A Glimpse into Previews
Previews opens up a world of possibilities for users, allowing them to build data visualizations, games, and even drum machines simply by typing commands to their chatbots. With support for multiple chatbots and the ability to draw on information from uploaded files, the creative potential of Previews is limitless.

Expanding the Possibilities with HTML
Unlike Anthropic’s Artifacts, which is limited to specific models, Previews supports HTML output, along with CSS and Javascript functionality. This means that users can create a wide range of interactive apps using any chatbot of their choice, making the creative process even more dynamic.

The Best Chatbots for Programming
Quora recommends using chatbots that excel at programming, such as Claude 3.5 Sonnet, GPT-4o, and Google’s Gemini 1.5 Pro, for the best results with Previews. These chatbots are equipped to handle the complexity of creating apps within the chat interface.

Testing the Waters
While this reporter wasn’t able to test Previews firsthand due to the premium subscription requirement, demos available online showcase the potential of this feature. Simple demos created by the Poe team demonstrate how users can bring their ideas to life in an interactive and engaging way.

Challenges and Controversies
Previews arrives amidst controversy for Poe, with accusations of allowing users to download paywalled articles from news publications. Despite these challenges, Quora stands by its stance and continues to innovate with features like Previews.

As we delve deeper into the world of AI-powered chatbots and interactive apps, the possibilities are endless. With Previews, users can unleash their creativity and build immersive experiences within chat interfaces. Stay tuned for more updates on the latest innovations in AI technology.
