🎉 Olympia AI Sends Emails Now, We're Launching on Product Hunt & Other Big News!
A fat update from Olympia including the revolutionary email feature, radical improvements, and your invite to our launch.
This newsletter was collaboratively created by our human and AI teams.
As the golden hues of dawn stretch across the horizon, a new day brims with possibilities. It's moments like these that remind us of the beauty in beginnings and the excitement of what's yet to come. Let us embark on this journey together, with open hearts and eager minds as we delve into this next Olympia update that's as enriching as the first sip of morning coffee—warm, invigorating, and full of promise.
🔥 Introducing Outbound Email at Olympia
We're absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of outbound email capabilities for Growth and Pro Plus subscribers at Olympia. This new feature allows our AI assistants to send emails on your behalf! To try it out just prompt something like "Email John Smith about the proposal we were just working on," and they will guide you through composing the message. If necessary, your assistant asks clarifying questions, confirms recipients, and allows editing of the draft before sending. Permissions can be set for frequent contacts to auto-send to trusted recipients without prior approval.
You can edit the text and signature right in the body of the email and send it to more than one recipient, adding folks in cc.
Anyone you send an email to gets automatically saved in your account’s address book. Access the address book via the account menu at the bottom of your screen, where your name and avatar icon are displayed. Please find more details about this feature in our knowledge base.
This major upgrade makes external communication through Olympia faster and more natural than ever before. Our assistants now become an extension of users themselves, interacting conversationally while ensuring messages accurately reflect users' needs and tone.
The introduction of outbound email unlocks new ways for Growth and ProPlus subscribers to leverage Olympia. Effortlessly delegate administrative work, never miss a follow-up, and communicate with stakeholders in a fast yet personalized way.
As always, feel free to share feedback as we refine and improve the outbound email experience. Give it a try, and let us know what you think!
Other New Features
You can now reassign a conversation to a different Olympia assistant at any time, allowing multiple bots to collaborate on a given topic. This feature replaces the occasionally clumsy and unreliable referral mechanism where assistants would refer to each other via internal email.
One of the most common reasons to switch is to give a document that’s been generated by Leticia, our copywriter, to our copy editor Calvin, for proofreading and refinement.
Switching who you are chatting with is super simple, and available at the click of a button at the top of the blue conversation header. Try it and see!
Documents also automatically save as you make edits. (No more losing your work if you forget to hit the Save button!)
Download Documents as a Word Doc or PDF
Long-form documents (those with white backgrounds generated by Leticia, Calvin, and Camille) can be exported now to Word (docx) or PDF downloads via a button in the message’s context menu.
File Uploads (Pro Plus Plan)
Pro Plus members can now seamlessly upload documents, spreadsheets, and presentations to their Olympia workspace. Simply drag and drop files or use the upload button. Uploaded files are securely stored and optimized for quick recall by your AI assistant.
This unlocks new use cases like getting instant feedback on design mockups, having your AI review and summarize documents, and more. You can see more information according to this and other features in our knowledge base.
The biggest performance-related news is that we rolled out use of OpenAI’s powerful new GPT-4 Turbo AI model on Wednesday night, resulting in big speed increases across the board. Turbo’s significantly larger context window is letting us experiment with techniques that let Olympia assistants offer more functionality and achieve greater understanding of you and your business. You can read Obie’s recent blog post on how we’re turbocharging Olympia with the new GPT-4 AI model.
In other performance news, after noticing that some users were letting their conversations grow to over a thousand messages we have implemented safeguards that prevent slow browser performance and crashes. Long conversations now load the latest 30 messages by default. To see older messages, just scroll up and click the provided link.
Conversations with hundreds of messages are always a bad idea. No matter how clever the Olympia software gets at summarizing and archiving old messages, that extra content still distracts our AI from fully focusing on how to best interact with you.
For optimal results always start a new conversation whenever you start discussing a new topic.
Since the last newsletter, we’ve also implemented dozens of small tweaks and bug fixes resulting in all-time low levels of failed messages and malfunctions.
We continuously evaluate and integrate the most promising technologies. The improvements from GPT-4 Turbo are part of our ongoing efforts to deliver the best conversational AI assistant on the market.
We'd love to hear your feedback on the performance and quality of conversations with Olympia. Feel free to reach out! Now enjoy those faster response times.
