The bots on Poe are powered by third-party companies that use large language models (LLMs). LLMs are machine learning systems that have been trained on vast quantities of text data in order to process and generate text.
Each bot on Poe has a distinct personality that you can get to know over time. You can try them all and decide which you like best for yourself!
Here’s an overview of the bots operated by Poe:
- Assistant - General-purpose assistant bot with strengths in programming-related tasks and non-English languages. Powered by gpt-3.5-turbo. Formerly known as Sage.
- Web-Search - General-purpose assistant bot capable of conducting web search as necessary to inform its responses. Particularly good for queries regarding up-to-date information or specific facts. Powered by gpt-3.5-turbo. Currently in beta release.
- GPT-4 - OpenAI's most powerful model. Stronger than ChatGPT in quantitative questions (math and physics), creative writing, and many other challenging tasks. Availability is currently limited.
- Playground-v2 - Generates high quality images based on the user's most recent prompt. Allows users to specify elements to avoid in the image using the "--no" parameter at the end of the prompt (e.g. "Tall trees, daylight --no rain"). Powered by Playground_v2 from playground.com.
- Claude-instant-100k - Anthropic’s fastest model, with an increased context window of 100k tokens (around 75,000 words). Enables analysis of very long documents, code, and more.
- DALL-E-3 - OpenAI's most powerful image generation model. Generates high quality images with intricate details based on the user's most recent prompt.
- StableDifusionXL - Generates high quality images based on the user's most recent prompt. Allows users to specify elements to avoid in the image using the "—no" parameter at the end of the prompt (e.g. "Tall trees, daylight —no rain"). Powered by Stable Diffusion XL.
- Claude-2-100k - Anthropic's most powerful model, with an increased context window of 100k tokens (around 75,000 words). Particularly good at creative writing.
- Claude-instant - Anthropic’s fastest model, with strength in creative tasks. Features a context window of 9k tokens (around 7,000 words).

Poe also features many user-created bots. You can browse through bots created and operated by users by clicking or tapping “Explore” on the app or website. From there, you are able to search for bots or browse bots grouped by topics.
Compute points are a way to give users more flexibility and control over how you communicate with bots on Poe. Each user has a maximum number of compute points they can use over a set period of time. Each bot displays the number of points required to send a message. This means you have the freedom to choose how you allocate your points: you can send many messages to higher compute point bots, more messages to less demanding bots, or balance your usage across a range of bots. For example: if you had only 10 messages left under our previous message cap, your options were limited. Now, with compute points, that same allowance could let you send up to 15 messages to ChatGPT or Assistant, offering you more flexibility and opportunities to interact with bots on Poe.
Subscribers receive a higher number of compute points, which are allocated and renewed on a monthly basis, as opposed to daily. See all the benefits of subscribing in the Subscription FAQ.
Non-paying users receive compute points daily, which reset at the end of each 24-hour period. Points do not roll over. If you need more compute points, you can wait for them to renew tomorrow, or subscribe to receive a higher number of compute points.
You can use the bots for learning, writing help, translation, programming help, summarization, entertainment, or many other things. We encourage you to explore and discover what Poe is most helpful for in your case.
The bots are usually correct, but may make incorrect statements, so if you are making an important decision based on information from a bot, you will want to verify the information elsewhere. The bots also should not be solely relied upon for medical, legal or investing advice – please consult a professional. And the bots may not have knowledge of current events, so some information may be out of date. We expect all of these issues to improve considerably as AI research continues.
No. Conversations with bots are private and are not visible to other users of Poe.
If you tap the Share button, you will be prompted to choose any messages you want to share with others, and the messages you select will then be copied to a new share object, which will be visible to whoever you share it with.
If you choose “Share on Poe” as part of the share flow, the messages you have chosen to share will be copied to a post that will be visible to other Poe users.
You can see all of your posts on Poe on your profile, which you can access via the left side menu (accessible from the button in the top left of the screen in the bot conversation view). You can delete any of your posts from the “...” menu, accessible in the top right of the post view.
Not currently. If we do this in the future, we will allow Quora writers to opt out if they want. See this blog post for more detail.
Similar to social media platforms, if you like a post from another user on Poe, other users will be able to see that you liked it. And just like “stories” products on other social media platforms, if you are following the creator of a post, they will be able to see that you have viewed it. You can see who you are following by visiting your profile, accessible from the menu on the left.
Other users can’t see when you like or dislike messages in a chat.
If you want to clear your chat history, you have two options: delete the entire chat history or delete individual messages.
Deleting your entire chat history:
- Open Poe and go to “Settings”.
- Scroll down to find the "Delete all chats" option.
- Tap on it, then confirm that you want to delete your entire chat history.
Deleting individual messages:
- Open Poe and go to the chat where you want to delete messages.
- Long-press (on the app) or right-click (on web) on one of the messages, then tap on "Delete".
- Select one or more messages to delete. A green checkmark will appear for each message you select.
- After selecting the message(s), tap "Delete" to remove them.
Poe supports Dark Mode, which can be easier on your eyes and more comfortable to use in low-light environments. Here's how to enable Dark Mode in Poe:
- Open Poe and go to “Settings”, located in the sidebar.
- Under "Appearance," choose "Dark theme," "Light theme," or "System" (which will automatically switch between light and dark mode based on your device's settings).
Poe will now be displayed in the selected mode. You can change this again at any time. Enjoy using Poe in the mode that's most comfortable for you!
Poe's user interface is currently available in English, Japanese, Chinese - Simplified, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and German. It will reflect your device language settings.
You can still use Poe to chat in other languages. Just start a chat with one of the bots in your preferred language. The bot will respond in the same language you used to initiate the chat. If a bot doesn't work for the language you want, you can send us feedback here.
The default bot is the bot that appears pre-selected when you start a new chat on Poe. You can choose any bot to be your default by going to the “Settings” page and selecting the bot you want under “Default bot”. This can help you quickly access your preferred bot without having to search for it every time you open Poe.
There are two types of bots you can create on Poe: Prompt bots and API bots.
Prompt bots allow you to create a chatbot on top of ChatGPT or Claude-instant by providing plain-text instructions that the bot will stick to during conversation with users.
API bots are aimed at more tech-savvy developers who want to run custom code in response to every user message. API bots are more work to set up but offer a lot more flexibility in terms of what you can achieve with them.
Here's how to create each type of bot:
- To create a prompt bot, open a web browser and go to https://poe.com/create_bot. Alternatively, click the “Create a bot” button in the sidebar. To see more detailed steps, see How to create a prompt bot and Best practices for prompts in our Poe for Developers GitBook.
- To create an API bot, which requires an LLM or code that uses one, visit https://poe.com/create_bot?api=1. For more information on API bots, check out https://developer.poe.com/api-bots/quick-start.
Once you've created your bot, you can customize it further by clicking on the Bot name at the top, then clicking on “Edit bot” from the menu.
After you create your bot, we encourage you to share it with others! To share your bot, follow these steps:
- Select your bot, then click on the bot's name at the top.
- Click on “Share bot“ to copy the bot's URL to your clipboard.
- Share the link with friends, family, on social media, etc.
Any custom bot you create on Poe can be set to private, which means it will only be available to you and won't be displayed on your profile or be searchable by other users.
Here's how to set your bot to private:
- Open the bot, then click on the bot's name at the top of the chat window.
- Select "Edit bot" from the menu that appears.
- Toggle the switch next to "Bot publicly accessible" to turn it off.
- Click "Save" to save your changes.
Your bot is now set to private and will only be visible to you. If you want to make your bot public again, simply go back to the "Edit bot" menu and toggle the "Bot publicly accessible" switch on.
We're sorry to see you go! If you're certain about deleting your account, you may do so by following these steps:
- Open the Poe app or visit poe.com and log into your account
- Go to “Settings”, located towards the bottom of the sidebar menu
- Scroll down to the bottom and tap on “Delete account”
Keep in mind that deletion is permanent. Once you’ve selected this option, it cannot be undone. Please note: if you have a Quora account linked to your Poe account, deleting your Poe account will also delete your Quora account.
