Introducing Verbatim Mode

Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Verbatim Mode.

Verbatim Mode maintains a source's original content formatting and converts the underlying newsletter directly to audio, bypassing our usual intelligent summarization and deduplication processes. This means you can enjoy your favorite content in its original form, just as the creator intended.

While Verbatim Mode preserves the integrity of the source material, we still take care to remove ads, sponsored posts, and other irrelevant information that shouldn't be in your podcast, like footers and disclaimers. The generated audio is still included as a chapter in your daily podcast (as normal).

Why Verbatim Mode?

We created Verbatim Mode in response to feedback from users who wanted more control over how they consume their favorite content. Many expressed that they wanted to hear the full depth and nuance of specific sources, without any summarization. We listened and although we believe that Jellypod's default summarization is often the better choice, there are many cases where a direct text to speech conversion provides a higher quality experience.

Now you can choose exactly which sources you want to hear in their entirety, while still enjoying Jellypod’s normal content processing for everything else. This flexibility allows each of our users to tailor their podcast experience to their exact preferences.

Verbatim Mode is available as part of Jellypod+ which aligns with our mission to provide a superior and highly customizable listening experience, without ads. We are committed to continuously improving Jellypod and delivering the features that matter most to you.

What’s Next

We've been hard at work building and releasing many new features, such as streaks, direct in-app content subscriptions, and improved personalization. As the amount of publications and online content exponentially increases, we believe that making content more accessible, personalized, and convenient is a no-brainer.

Our roadmap is filled with exciting updates that we can’t wait to share with you. If you are interested in joining the team to help us create the future of personalized media, please reach out to careers@jellypod.ai.
