1. Andi Launches ChatGPT Search Alternative

Andi, a Miami-based Y Combinator-backed startup, has emerged from stealth with request that it has developed “the first synthetic AI search assistant that provides factually accurate, summary results”.

In a press release, Andi co-founder Angela Hoover said: “Gen-Z hates Google. For us, search is broken. We live on our phones in visual feed messaging apps like TikTok and Instagram. Traditional search engine results are flooded with ads, SEO spam, and clutter. We hate the invasive creepy ads and the way Google is Big Brother and oversees everything. Generation Z is so hungry for an alternative that we are using TikTok as a search engine.”

Andi is currently free for consumers, and the company says it doesn’t log or track searches. The company says enterprise plans are in the works, saying “dozens of companies have reached out to Andi to request an embedded B2B search solution.”
