What’s new in Brave?

A quick look at the latest features we’re most excited about.

Mobile browser

Use Leo—Brave’s smart AI assistant—on the go with full support for Android and iOS mobile devices

Leo—Brave’s smart, private AI assistant built right into the browser—is now available on all Android and iOS mobile devices. Mobile users on the latest versions of Brave for Android or iOS will see options to ask Leo questions, summarize pages, and more from both the browser address bar and an optional, on-page experience.

Chats in Leo aren’t used for model training, and they’re not persisted on Brave’s servers, which means no one can review your conversations. A reverse proxy mechanism hides any Leo user’s IP address. With Leo, you get a seamless, highly accurate AI experience and unparalleled privacy.

Ready to try Brave Leo on mobile? It’s easy: Simply open the browser, begin typing in the address bar, and choose Ask Leo from the suggestions. Or tap “” (Android) or “” (iOS) and choose Leo.

If you don’t see Leo on your mobile device, update to the latest version of Brave to get started.
