. “Experience the Power of Leo AI on Android: Brave’s Revolutionary Assistant Now Accessible!”

Brave is launching its AI-powered assistant, Leo, to all Android users. The assistant allows users to ask questions, translate pages, summarize pages, create content and more. With Leo, Brave is hoping its users won’t have to turn to ChatGPT or other popular LLMs for tasks and queries, and will instead use its service instead. If you’re not seeing Brave Leo for Android yet, that’s because it will be rolled out in phases over the next few days. Brave isn’t the only browser company to recently launch an AI assistant, as Opera launched an AI assistant called Aria last year.

New AI Assistant Leo Launches on Android Devices, Expanding Brave’s Capabilities

Brave, the privacy-focused browser, has announced the launch of its newest AI-powered assistant, Leo, for all Android users. Leo offers a wide range of features including question-answering, webpage translation, page summarization, content creation and more. This Android release comes shortly after Leo’s initial launch on desktop a few months ago. The company states that Leo will also become available on iOS devices within the next few weeks.

With Leo, users will have access to advanced functions such as real-time webpage or video summaries, content-related inquiries, long-form content generation, page translations or rewrites, transcription of audio or video content, and even coding capabilities. By introducing Leo, Brave is aiming to eliminate the need for other popular AI assistants like ChatGPT, instead providing a comprehensive solution for its users.

According to Brave, Leo can be utilized for various tasks such as cooking recipe planning, travel tips, product comparisons, and summarizing lengthy webpages. Additionally, Leo offers access to Mixtral 8x7B, Anthropic’s Claude Instant, and Meta’s Llama 2 13B. While Mixtral 8x7B is set as the default AI model for Leo on desktop and Android, users have the option to switch to other models or upgrade to Leo Premium for a higher rate limit at $14.99 per month. Leo Premium can be used on up to five devices across Android, Linux, macOS, and Windows.

Both Brave and Leo prioritize user privacy and security. All conversations with Leo are kept confidential, and the company states that they do not record or use chats for model training. Requests are routed through an anonymization server, and responses are deleted after being generated. Additionally, users are not required to create a Brave account to use Leo. However, for those who opt to subscribe, all subscriptions are validated through unlinkable tokens, ensuring that the company remains unaware of their activity or email.

To access Leo on Android, users must open the browser, begin typing in the address bar, and click on “Ask Leo.” For an on-page chat experience, users can select the three-dot menu and tap “Leo.”

Android users will need to update to version 1.63 of Brave to access Leo. The rollout of Leo for Android will take place over the next few days in phases, so some users may not immediately see it in their browsers.

While Brave may be one of the latest browser companies to unveil an AI assistant, they are not alone. Opera launched its own AI assistant called Aria last year, developed in collaboration with OpenAI. Aria offers a chatbot-style interface for users to ask questions and receive responses.
