Layla v3.8.0 has been published!

We are excited to announce a new version of Layla! This is a pretty hefty update and includes a lot of things we've been working hard on. In this post, let's go over some highlights.


Introducing Layla's Toolkit

The highlight of this update is the new app Layla's Toolkit. With this, we introduce a unified framework for Layla to use tools and functions. From now on, this app will contain a wealth of tools that Layla can use to enhance her personal assistant abilities. She may pick the most suitable tool during your conversations.


The first tool implemented is the ability to search the internet for latest information.


When you ask Layla about factual information or current events, Layla will use the DuckDuckGo search engine to search the latest information and give you an informed response. We chose the DuckDuckGo engine for it's enhanced privacy and no-tracking policy. Other search engine implementations will be coming soon!



Redesigned the Welcome page

We have redesigned the welcome page to be more streamlined and more "productivity-focused" instead of "character-focused". This includes a more prominent start chat icon, and quick actions to access all the features Layla offers. Your characters are still there! Just not as "in-your-face".
