Layla v4.9.0 has been published!

It's been a long time! And I'm excited to bring you a large update with significant improvements in many areas!

Long-term memory has been updated to V2!

This update replaces the LTM model with a much more efficient built-in summariser the constructs your memories 10x as fast! Previously, each memory ingestion could take anywhere from 1-5 minutes, now it takes around 5 seconds!

Your characters will now also utilise their memory and form an impression of you after chatting with them for a while. You can view their impression of you in your Profile page.

Re-designed Voice Chat

Hands-free mode has been completely re-designed as a new app: Voice Chat. It now works in a similar way as video chatting with your characters. Combine this with the new animated character backgrounds feature to bring your characters to life.

Offline Translator

Works similar to Google Translate, but works completely offline!

It can also translate your chats with LLM in real-time, so even if the model doesn't support multi-lingual, it does now with Layla!

Executorch Update

Significant updates to the Executorch backend, further stabilising and integrating it into Layla:

  • Executorch now supports edit & regen during chatting

This is made possible by the new KV structure in the compiled models.

IMPORTANT: To use the new Executorch edit & regen features, you must re-download your executorch models from my repo:
