BoodleBox’s Biggest Update Yet

๐ŸŒŽ Chat Anywhere. 

Start a chat anywhere by pressing CTRL+B on PC or Command+B on Mac to launch the BoodleBar.  Each chat is now a full screen focused experience. 

๐Ÿ”ฆ Assistant Auto-Recommendation. 

As you type a prompt in the BoodleBar, you’ll receive recommendations for potential assistants to use to generate a response.  Note: new recommendations are generated whenever you enter a space, so include a space after the last word of your prompt.  You can then scroll using the mouse or the arrow keys, then select by clicking with the mouse or hitting TAB or ENTER.  

๐Ÿ”Ž Bot Search and Filtering. 

Alternatively, you can see all of your bots and assistants by typing “@” in the BoodleBar, then scrolling. You can filter the bot assistants by name by typing a word (“write”, “kids”, etc.) after the “@”.  Here’s a full list of bot assistants available in BoodleBox

๐Ÿค– Bot Garage.

You spoke, we listened. A number of users requested a way to browse all of the available bot assistants outside of the chat bar. We’ve added a searchable, filterable list of all bots that you can launch by clicking on the “Bot Garage” icon in the sidebar or by clicking Control+G on PC or Command+G on Mac.  Clicking on any bot assistant launches a chat with it. 


No more (im)patient waiting for bot assistants to respond.  Bot assistants now stream their responses.  

๐Ÿ‘ค Quicklaunch Bots.

Anywhere you see an alias (an “@botname”), you can click on it to launch a new chat with that bot assistant.  This allows you to peruse the feed, find a bot assistant you want to chat with, then immediately start a chat.  Clicking on a bot’s avatar will also quick launch it. 

๐Ÿ› ๏ธ Improved HelpBot.

HelpBot (@help) will now suggest specific bot assistants and a strategy for using BoodleBox to solve a particular problem.  Try starting with HelpBot to get suggestions on how to use BoodleBox. 

๐Ÿค– Claude 2 Bots. 

The text-based BoodleBots in platform are now powered by Anthropic’s Claude 2.  Try ’em out and let us know what you think. 

๐Ÿ‘ค Profile Feed View. 

Each user account now has a feed view showing the boodle that user has made public.  Check out (and follow) our co-founder France Hoang’s BoodleBox Feed.

๐Ÿ’พ Improved Saving/Posting.  

In captions you can now tag users you follow using “@” and their name. 

Boodle are saved/posted to whatever box is in focus (you can override this by manually saving/posting a boodle to different box).

๐Ÿ“ฑ Mobile Experience Improvements. 

The mobile UI now has additional support for search, notifications, and add new chat.
