What is the number of uses that I have with the advanced models on a Pro account?

Your account has a total of 600 uses per day, which includes both Pro searches and advanced model queries.It's important to note that using the default model does not impact your daily count. You can use the default model as much as you like without affecting the 600 daily uses allocated for Pro searches and advanced model queries.
