Perplexity has announced a major upgrade for its AI search engine.
The upgrade adds multi-step reasoning for complex searches and math support via Wolfram Alpha to Pro Searches.
Free users continue to get five Pro Searches every five hours.

Perplexity, the AI-powered search engine startup, has announced a significant upgrade to its Pro Search feature. The company says that the search engine is now capable of “multi-step reasoning” or the ability to chain together multiple online searches to find accurate results and information. The update also introduces new AI abilities such as code execution and a Wolfram Alpha integration for math solving.

While competitors like Microsoft Copilot can also search the internet, Perplexity says that its AI chatbot can handle much more complex queries. However, Pro Search remains an optional toggle that users have to manually enable on a per-conversation basis. Regular queries will continue to use Perplexity’s Quick Search instead, which studies fewer sources before responding.
