Peek is a MacOS Menu Bar application that allows you to interact with multiple AI chatbots in one place. No API key needed! It provides a seamless and intuitive user interface for interacting with AI chatbots like OpenAI's ChatGPT, Google's Bard, Pi by Inflection AI, and Perplexity AI. This also means your history is synced across devices.


  • πŸ’¬ Multiple AI Chatbots: Peek supports multiple AI chatbots (ChatGPT, Bard, Pi, Perplexity). You can easily switch between different chatbots using the dropdown menu.
  • πŸ”’ Your privacy is taken care of. The app is essentially a webview of the platforms (like a browser inside an app) - so no data is passed through the app - it just an interface for ChatGPT, Bard, Pi, Perplexity, so all data goes through them.
  • ❌ No API keys needed. Just log in with your accounts.
  • πŸ›Ÿ Floating Window: Use ⌘+J to summon the app; it’ll always be on top and instead of closing, use the shortcut again to toggle off.
  • πŸ“Έ Beautiful Screenshots: You can take a screenshot of your chat using the ⌘+Shift+S shortcut. The screenshot will be saved to your local machine. Or copy it to your clipboard directly using ⌘ +S. This is also my favorite feature that I had a lot of fun baking in. 🌞
  • ο£Ώ Menu bar Icon: Peek sits in your system Menu Bar for easy access.
  • πŸŒ‘ Dark mode

To install Peek, download the latest release by paying what you want.

To switch between different chatbots, click on the dropdown menu at the top of the app and select the chatbot you want to use. To toggle the window, press ⌘+J. To take a screenshot of your chat, press ⌘+Shift+S. The screenshot will be saved to your local machine. To copy a screenshot to your clipboard, press ⌘+S.

Use Cases

Peek is great for anyone who uses AI chatbots, whether you're a developer, a writer, a student, or just someone who likes to chat with AI. Here are a few ways you could use Peek:

  • Developers: Use Peek while you are coding like a co-pilot
  • Writers: Use Peek to chat with AI and get ideas for your writing wherever you are (docs, notes, notion) - all without switching context.
  • Students: Use Peek to get help with your homework from AI anywhere on Mac
  • Anyone interested in AI: Make this your co-piliot and use it anywhere you want.

I hope you enjoy using Peek!
