New Perplexity search assistants

Perplexity is developing new search assistants aimed at shopping, local business discovery, and news aggregation. These assistants will search through specific platforms like Yelp for local businesses, Shopify and Klarna for products, and news headlines for current events. Tako will provide live data for the stock market. This feature is still in development and not yet available to the public.
