To write an authentic and informative Koala AI review, I tested the tool for a week to check how well it performed.

So, let me discuss its most significant features and my experience using them:

1. KoalaWriter

Koala AI offers an AI-based writing tool known as KoalaWriter. It uses OpenAI’s GPT technology and aims to produce high-quality, ready-to-publish blogs with its One-Click Article Creation feature.

To utilize the One-Click Article Creation tool, you only have to type the article’s topic, click on the Write Article button, and let KoalaWriter do the rest of the magic.

On the other hand, with its Bulk Article Creation tool, you can create multiple articles at once. In addition, this operation is done in the background, so you can leave and come back later to check the results.

To see if it’s as effective as advertised, I tested KoalaWriter to write a blog post. For this, I navigated to the main dashboard and clicked on the KoalaWriter option.

Next, you need to choose a GPT version from:

  • GPT 3.5: Available in the basic plan, usage counts each word produced as a single credit
  • GPT-4 Turbo: Available to paid users, uses 2.5 times more words
  • GPT-4 Legacy: Available to paid users, uses 5 times more words

In my case, I selected the GPT-3.5 version for writing a simple article related to the health niche. However, if you want to write a technical blog post, I’d recommend using GPT-4.

selecting gpt version in koalawriter ai

Then, select an Article Type, which could be:

  • Blog Post: Used to write blogs within minutes
  • Amazon Product Roundup: Writes affiliated articles about Amazon products related to a certain category
  • Amazon Single Product Review: Generates a review for a single Amazon product
  • YouTube Video to Blog Post: Creates a blog post based on a YouTube Video
  • Rewrite Blog Post: Used to rewrite an already published blog post

Here, I selected the Blog Post option as my article type.

Next, I typed “Is beetroot and apple juice good for the skin and body?” as the Target Keyword for my blog.

adding target keyword for article in koalawriter ai

For SEO Optimization, basic plan users go with the DEFAULT mode. However, you can also specify related keywords, entities, and topics by yourself in the MANUAL mode.

Meanwhile, the AI-POWERED mode, which is only available to paid users, performs what you’d typically do manually. For instance, it analyzes the rankings of your top competitors on Google and recognizes and includes common terms from those sources.

For my blog post, I selected DEFAULT SEO Optimization mode.

Next, specify a domain for Automatic Internal Linking. Keep in mind that, this feature is only available with the Gold credit pack or the Professional subscription.

Now, choose whether you want images for your article. I selected the IMAGES option under the AI Images and YouTube Videos option.

setting image style in koalawriter ai

This feature allows you to customize the image style, size, and number. You can choose from various models, like Photo for photorealistic results, and Illustration for a hand-drawn look.

Koala AI is also working towards supporting custom, fine-tuned models to let you personalize the output even further.

setting aspect ratio and maximum number of images in koalawriter ai

With images out of the way, select the Article Length. I picked the Shorter (2-3 sections, 450-900 Words) option.

KoalaWriter supports 8 different Tone of Voice options if you need articles for different purposes. Here, I selected an SEO-optimized option for my blog post.

Next, I set the Language as English (US). I was happy to see that the tool can generate content in tons of languages, including German, French, Spanish, Czech, and many more.

setting article language in koalawriter ai

After that, I selected the United States as the Country where I want my blog post to get ranked. This option assists in localizing the data you use for SEO optimization, Real-time data, and FAQ.

setting country in koalawriter ai

Next, choose a Point of View to specify the perspective from First-Person, Second-Person, or Third-Person.

setting point of view in koalawriter ai

Then, I enabled the Use Real-Time Data toggle and set the Real-Time Source Filtering feature as DEFAULT. This uses advanced algorithms to deliver quick access to relevant information from the web.

Moreover, it eliminates the need to navigate away from KoalaWriter to do your research.

using real time data settings in koalawriter ai

Next, enable the Cite Sources, Use Outline Editor, Include FAQ Section, and Include Key Takeaways toggles, as per your requirements.

Finally, I clicked the Create Outline button to view an outline for my blog post.

creating an outline in koalawriter ai

Here’s how the generated outline looks in KoalaWriter’s Outline Editor:

viewing created outline in koalawriter ai

The Outline Editor organized the article’s structure into different sections and subsections to ensure logical flow and cohesiveness.

Additionally, in the Outline Editor window, you can easily add, delete, copy, update, or reorder H2s and H3s before generating the article.

For instance, I updated the Enhancing Skin Glow H3 heading to Improving Skin Texture and Glow and clicked Save.

The Editor updated the selected H3 heading right away.

If the tool has missed an important aspect of your article, you can click the Add Section button and include it.

If you want to undo any of your edits, you can do that through the Undo Changes button. It also shows you how many edits will be reverted, so you don’t accidentally delete everything you’ve worked on.

For the last step, I clicked on the Write Article button to let KoalaWriter create my blog post based on the outline.

After generating the desired content, you can either Download or Copy it. Moreover, KoalaWriter also allows you to go from a draft to a live post.

To do so, you have to connect your WordPress, Shopify, or Webflow site to your Koala AI account.

In case you want to create multiple articles, select the Bulk Mode, and repeat the same steps as above.

The article Koala AI generated for me looked great at a glance, but I also wanted to check it for clarity, AI content detection, and plagiarism.

So, first, I copied my blog from KoalaWriter and pasted it to Grammarly. The tool displayed an 85 Overall score, which means that the article needs further editing to improve the clarity before publishing.

Then, I moved on to Originality.ai which labeled my blog post as 100% AI-written content, which is true, but wasn’t the result I hoped for.

checking for ai content of article in orginality ai

Lastly, I used Quetext to check my text for plagiarism. Quetext detected 36% plagiarism, which is quite unacceptable.

To conclude my KoalaWriter review, I’d say that compared to other similar applications, such as ChatGPT-3.5, KoalaWriter performs better in terms of content creation and search engine optimization.

However, you’ll most likely need to edit the text to avoid plagiarism and ensure clarity. Also, keep in mind that the generated content won’t be able to bypass AI detection tools.

2. KoalaChat

KoalaChat is a chatbot that retrieves up-to-date facts and statistics, fact-checks the output, and can also reference recent news.

In addition, you can also use different commands to generate AI images, fetch information from a given source, generate a summary of a YouTube video, get a list of keywords, and more.

To test out these commands, I clicked on the KoalaChat option from the left side panel, set the GPT version, and enabled the Real-Time Data toggle.

opening koalachat ai

The first command I tried was /dream. It generates an AI image for the given prompt.

Here, I used the /dream latte command and KoalaChat generated a nice, photorealistic image.

In KoalaChat, the /source command fetches a URL and uses it as context for the provided prompt.

For instance, in the /source command, I specified the official website link of Fliki AI and asked KoalaChat “What are the top features of Fliki AI“.

The tool fetched the source URL and displayed the top features of Fliki AI in a list form.

fetching content from the source url with koalachat ai

On the other hand, the /ytsummary command is used to generate a summary of a YouTube video based on the English captions.

For testing, I copied the URL of the elai.io video from the MSPowerUser YouTube channel and viewed its summary as follows.

generating youtube video summary with koalachat ai

Next, I used KoalaChat’s /outline command to get a list of headings of the provided source URL.

generating an outline with koalachat ai

Then, I tested the /entities command to get a list of entities, keywords, and subtopics for the given URL. Notably, this command used 5 credits per prompt.

generating entities with koalachat ai

After that, I executed the /d command to check the Domain Authority of Google which is 94 (at the time of writing and based on data from Moz).

checking domain authority with koalachat ai

KoalaChat also lets you fetch the search engine results for a query with the /serp command.

For example, I used the /serp command to get search engine results for my query “Can you eat watermelon seeds“. The output provided the results, including the title, description, and URL.

generating serp with koalachat ai

In KoalaChat, the /kw command returns a list of keywords from a search engine’s autocomplete feature. I tested this command to get a list for the “healthy” keyword and got amazing results.

However, the KoalaChat command tool might struggle with complex queries. So, you may need to provide your request in simple language with more details to get better results.

3. Introduction Generator

The Introduction Generator AI tool can create engaging intros for novels, essays, business proposals, blog posts, and academic research papers.

To try it out, I navigated to the main dashboard of Koala AI and clicked on the Free Tools option.

checking free tools in koala ai

From the listed tools, I then clicked on the Introduction Generator option.

Next, I type “Fliki ai vs Invideo” as my blog post topic and click on Generate Introduction.

Within a minute, the Koala AI Introduction Generator tool provided me with a persuasive and SEO-friendly introduction.

Keep in mind that this Introduction Generator tool offers limited control over the desired tone or specific content, compared to KoalaWriter.

4. Paraphrasing Tool

Koala’s AI Paraphrasing tool is used to paraphrase any text content to make it sound more natural and human-like.

Content creators, students, and journalists also use Koala’s Paraphrasing tool to rewrite content, convert it into simpler language, and avoid plagiarism.

To test the feature, I pasted a previously generated text and clicked on the Paraphrase button.

paraphrasing text using koalachat ai

The result was a simpler, shorter version of the text that also maintained the original core idea.

viewing paraphrased text in koalachat ai

Unlike Quillbot which paraphrases only a limited number of words in a single attempt of the free plan, this tool allows you to rephrase long-form content without restrictions.

However, sometimes you may need to edit these AI-generated paraphrases to avoid sounding repetitive.

5. Title Generator

Koala’s Title Generator can help you create SEO-optimized titles for your blog posts or articles in seconds. It includes your targeted keywords to make sure the title is relevant to your article.

Here, I used Koala’s Title Generator to create some titles for the keyword “Fliki AI vs Invideo“.

generating seo title with koalachat ai

As a result, the Title Generator tool listed 10 SEO-optimized titles.

However, you might get some overly optimized titles where the tool has prioritized keywords over readability. Additionally, I would’ve liked a bullet list of titles better, as the output above is hard to follow.

6. Meta Description Generator

Koala’s AI Meta Description Generator uses the latest GPT models to create SEO-optimized meta descriptions for the target keywords. In addition, it can analyze a page URL for context and provide the relevant meta description.

To use Meta Description Generator, navigate to its main window, specify a Target Keyword or a Page URL, and click the Generate Meta Description button.

generating meta descriptions in koalachat ai

Here, I used the tool and generated 3 solid meta descriptions for our Descript Review article.


Similar to titles, the output here might lack originality and need further editing.

7. YouTube Summary Generator

To get a concise summary of any YouTube video, try Koala’s YouTube Summary Generator tool. It works by extracting a video’s closed captions to create a summary.

If you need to catch up on industry trends or get key points from long lectures, reviews, documentaries, or tutorials, the tool comes in quite handy.

To test it, I used a Paint 3D – Tutorial for Beginners YouTube video.

generating youtube video summary in koalachat ai

Here is how this tool summarized it:

The result was accurate, although you’d still need to review it, especially if you need the summary for work or another important task.

8. AI Stock Image Generator

With this tool, Koala AI lets you generate high-quality and unique stock images as per your requirements. Then, you can use those for your design projects, products, social media posts, etc.

To test this free-to-use tool, I opened it, typed my Photo Subject, and clicked Generate.

generating an image in koalachat ai

The AI Stock Image Generator then took a few seconds and came up with the following picture:

viewing generated image in koalachat ai

Overall, I’d say it’s a good AI art generator for beginners. However, if you want highly detailed, unique, and creative images, it’s better to opt for the likes of Midjourney and Stable Diffusion.

9. Paragraph Generator

With the help of Koala’s AI Paragraph Generator, you can instantly create properly structured paragraphs on any subject. It’s basically a scaled-back version of the KoalaWriter.

To test the tool I prompted it to generate a paragraph for the topic “watermelon seeds nutrition“.

generating paragraph in koalachat ai

Within a few seconds, the tool generated an engaging paragraph for the given topic.

In addition, Koala’s AI Paragraph Generator also allows you to Polish the generated content with the following options:

  • Splitting the paragraph into 1-3 sentences
  • Removing mid-article conclusions
  • Reducing repetitions
  • Converting passive voice into active voice (Available in Beta)
  • Breaking down complex sentences into simpler ones (Available in Beta)

10. Final Draft Tool

Koala’s AI Final Draft Tool uses a custom, fine-tuned model to assist you in removing fluff and improving the overall quality of a text. This tool is mostly used to edit and finalize the content before publishing it.

It offers different options to polish the content, set its font size and style, format lists or sublists, and others.

using final draft option in koalachat ai

However, it doesn’t support other advanced editing features, such as grammar checks, etc.

11. GPT Tokenizer

OpenAI’s tokenizer tool is built for legacy models and is not accurate for GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. Therefore, Koala’s development team created their own GPT Tokenizer that accurately displays the token count of the entered text.

To test it out, I opened the tool from the main window and pasted some text in the input field.

The GPT Tokenizer instantly calculated and printed the number of tokens, characters, and words of the text in real-time.

Koala AI Review – Verdict

Koala AI is an amazing content creation tool that has a user-friendly interface and valuable features like KoalaWriter, KoalaChat, and 9 other free-to-use integrated AI tools.

However, its free version offers a limited number of words for KoalaWriter, and the generated content contains plagiarism and may require editing for clarity. KoalaChat may also need detailed instructions for generating high-quality output.

Overall, I’d give it 4 out of 5.
