🌐 Saga in 6 languages, ⚡ GPT-4o, and more

In this update we are announcing Saga available in 6 languages, including localization of our website and guides in 🇧🇷 Brazilian 🇵🇹 Portuguese. We've also updated ⚡ Saga AI to use GPT-4o – the fastest and smartest large language model available on the market.

We also quietly upgraded Saga to a new workspace architecture over the last few weeks which brings up to 10x faster loading times. This new architecture will very soon unlock much awaited features such as private pages and sharing pages with guests.

Read below for the full list of improvements and fixes.

🌐 Translations

Software that we use every day should be accessible in the languages that we speak. We're excited to announce that Saga is now available in six languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Brazilian Portuguese.

In addition to the app, the onboarding for new users and the prompts that we use in Saga AI are also localized.

How to change your language preferences:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Scroll down to Language
  • Choose your preferred language from the dropdown menu

Our website and guides are also fully translated in Brazilian Portuguese and available at: https://saga.so/pt-br

⚡ GPT-4o

Saga AI now uses GPT-4o, which is twice as fast and much smarter than the previous model we used. GPT-4o, developed by OpenAI, is generally the best model on the market right now when it comes to reasoning. We've also released a series of improvements – responses from Saga AI should be generally faster and more reliable. Try it out yourself to see the difference.

How to use Saga AI

You can use Saga AI by highlighting any text and then clicking on the ⚡ button or by pressing  Cmd/Ctrl + J on macOS/Windows respectively.

We have a full guide of how to use Saga AI and how to customize it for your needs.

🏯 New architecture

We quietly upgraded Saga to a new architecture over the last few weeks. This marks an exciting new beginning for Saga.

Our goal is to unlock more granular control over sharing and collaboration while keeping the app as fast as it is — and even make it faster.

Expect long-requested features such as private pages, sharing pages with guests, as well as version history to be released soon.

What this change means now is that even large workspaces will load almost instantly. A workspace with thousands of pages should load in less than a second. The pages and tasks tables load also much faster.
