Perplexity Audio Discover

Perplexity introduced a new audio mode for its Discovery feed, transforming written content into an auditory experience. Users can now click an audio button on the Discovery page to listen to articles. This feature comes with controls for pausing, scrolling, and navigating between articles. Additionally, it includes a visual animation that plays in sync with the audio, making the listening experience more appealing. The audio continues to play even when the Discovery feed or audio player is minimized, with a widget displaying pause and animation options, allowing users to multitask within the app.
