About Merlin AI

Merlin AI plugin is an AI-driven plug-in extension for Chrome web browser. The extension works as a tool that allows you access to an online assistant which uses the internet. This could be through summarising videos on YouTube for your work or personal life, writing or replying to comments on social media or just generally saving you time with any online task you have.

The plug-in extension is powered by AI models such as ChatGPT, GPT-4, Claude 2 by Anthropic, LLama 2 by Meta and users can select which model they would like to work with. All advanced and premium features of Merlin are free to use. Their free account gives 51 queries per day. They work on a model which says Free forever, pay only when you scale.

In terms of pricing, they have three different pro plans that you can subscribe to monthly or annually as per your requirements. Depending on which AI model you are using on Merlin, it charges you some queries. For example, GPT-4 is more costlier than ChatGPT, so Merlin charges you 10 queries for GPT-4 and 1 query for using ChatGPT.

Merlin AI Review

What is Merlin AI plugin app?

Merlin AI plugin is an extension for Chrome that allows users access to a smart online assistant powered by AI technology. The plug-in extension can be used for simply setting it to reply to Twitter, LinkedIn or other social media platforms, all the way through to summarising YouTube videos for work purposes and answering queries or composing emails.

The plug-in extension is very easy to use. It takes no time to download and then can be easily accessed by simply clicking ctrl+m or cmd+m and opening up the side window. In this window, you can then use your source for your queries, see how many rewards you have left (depending on your package) and then type in your command or prompts. The plug-in can also save prompts, too should you wish to reuse them regularly.

The plug-in itself states that it works in every language too, meaning that anyone is able to access and use it and make the most of AI technology in their working or personal lives.

What we love about Merlin AI Plugin

There are many really good things about this plug-in extension. Not only can it be used to save time in work or personal lives, to compose emails, answer replies to social media or just answer queries that you have whilst online, but it can also be used as a copilot when browsing on the web and giving users a deeper experience when online. However, as this technology is still emerging and becoming more part of our everyday lives, I think for me, the website provided is fantastic. It gives lots of information for the user as to how to use the addon as well as making sure they can use it to its full capacity. I can certainly see, as AI technology becomes more and more in our lives, this plug-in will continue to provide users with an online assistant for all their needs.

What skills does it improve?

Merlin AI plugin aims to improve the user's experience when online. It makes learning online easier, allowing users to ask queries driven by the content they are seeing as well as making users more time-effective and efficient as it can undertake a number of tasks on their behalf. 

What age is it appropriate for?

Merlin AI plugin app is probably best pitched at older users who regularly use the internet and want to experience a deeper learning environment or one where they are assisted in what they are trying to achieve.

How will students benefit?

Students will benefit from the AI-powered plug-in providing them with extra information and knowledge to improve their work and their searching whilst online. 

The tool can help when it comes to research, when used as an assistant to explain searches and results, as well as being able to summarise YouTube videos into text, helping those who especially struggle with their concentration.

How will teachers benefit?

Teachers can promote the plug-in to their students to encourage them to use it to support their learning at home when a teacher is not available. However, they may also wish to use it themselves to create detailed notes from videos, help find information online that is relevant to their teaching and also to help them become more time efficient. It can also be used as a tool to help teachers in their planning too. This could be in the form of producing notes and summarising chapters of text, generating comprehension questions or setting up an automation to complete tasks on Sheets or Docs or creating performance tables for classes. In reality, anything you can think of that's going to make a teacher's life easier can be done through Merlin.
