The question



The answer & text of relevant moments


Sent as a proxy to OpenAI unless you select "Help Rewind improve"*

*For the purposes of securing our API keys, this information is sent to Rewind and immediately forwarded to OpenAI. We do not store any data unless you select "Help Rewind improve" after giving an answer a thumbs up or down rating.

How does it work?

  1. When you ask a question, only the text of the most relevant moments from your past are sent to GPT-4 to generate an answer. Relevant moments means we'll show you the best possible answers for your query based on a search we do through the entire database. We use the words you used as the prompt to find the most relevant moments. If you specify a time limit in your question (last hour, today, etc.), we’ll use that time range to limit the search results.

  2. GPT-4 processes your question and the text of the relevant moments, and an answer is sent back to Rewind.

  3. Rewind processes the answer and provides links to local recorded data for you to view as sources.

As a reminder, using Ask Rewind is completely optional. If you decide to open Ask Rewind and ask it a question, the relevant text-based data will be sent to GPT-4 in order to generate a response. We do not opt-in to share data with OpenAI to improve model performance.
