Follow up on the latest improvements and updates.


We've upgraded GPT4 to the latest
model from OpenAI.
To try the new model just chat with GPT4. All of your Personas will also switch to the new upgraded model, please let us know if you see any issues with your existing workflows.
We're working on new updates to the Desktop app that will allow you to take screenshots, and chat with voice with the model across Mac and Windows.
We've been hard at work on a number of new features and improvements to Vello, and we're excited to share them with you today. Here's a quick overview of what's new:
New models
: Updated GPT4 Turbo, Llama 3 Large and Small models. The Llama 3 models in particular (served via groq) are a dramatic improvement over existing models because of their speed.
Better file support
: Improved handling of images, PDFs, and other file types. This is the first release enabled by our new in house architecture, many more iprovements to come including file access for all models, permanent memory, and integrations.
Referral program
: If you love Vello, share it with your friends and get rewarded. See details here
Per token pricing
: We are moving towards a more open and transparent pricing model.
Vello Flex
is a new option that allows you to pay per token above a plan usage cap. This is a great option to have if you need to use the full context of a model or if you have a high volume of requests. See more details here
As always, your feedback is invaluable to us, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
✋🏻 Vello Team
First, we wanted to address some feedback we have received about file access.
We are aware of the intermittent issue with assistants over the past month and the with the new Claude models. We are actively working on our own file and assistant support architecture that will replace the existing one for all GPT models, including the new Claude models. This update is expected to ship later this week and will be the first release of our custom cognitive architecture, which will power both this feature and persistent memory, tools, and workflows.
