Updates to Base Models: General (en-US), Phonecall (en-US), and Meeting (en-US)

BY Natalie Rutgers  | January 18 2022

Deepgram is proud to announce significant updates to three of our base models — General (en-US), Phonecall (en-US), and Meeting (en-US).

These improvements greatly improve accuracy and expand model vocabulary.

If you do not wish to use the latest version that was deployed as the default on January 18, 2022, you may pin to a previous version by specifying the desired version as version={desired_version}. If no version is specified, we will use our latest model by default. See below for previous versions.
