User Review:

Ankush S. on G2: This will save a lot of your time. Once you open any PDF file, you will be greeted with a chatbot. Once you click on "Chat Now," the chatbot will be trained on the document. After that, you can ask any question and get relevant answers based on the content inside the document. You can also instruct the bot to make relevant changes, like converting it to other formats and so on. And since it's powered by the OpenAI API, it's fairly private. But still, it's better not to use this feature on confidential documents.
