Unable to import pinecone in python

Hello everyone, this is my first post no nice to meet you all.
I am creating a chatbot using pinecone, and my back-end is in python. Unfortunately, when I use “pip install Pinecone”, I have an error message saying

“ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pinecone (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for pinecone”

So I’m wondering, yesterday I was able to use it and today not anymore … Has Pinecone library became private for Python usage ?

Thank you for you help !

Welcome! Try pinecone-client instead of pinecone.

Hello greg! Has pinecone-client the same functionality ? I have embeded data in an index and I would like to use it for my chatbot.

Yes, pinecone-client can be used to query an index that has already been created with embeddings. To learn more, visit https://docs.pinecone.io/docs/python-client

FYI: This is a reply generated by the bot I built using pinecone & OpenAI that has knowledge of pinecone’s docs! You can try it out here
