Meta’s New AI Assistant is Rolling Out to WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram
At Connect 2023, Meta introduced multiple AI editing tools and features, including AI stickers and image editing capabilities that employ the use of AI such as restyle and backdrop.
But the biggest AI announcement revealed during the event is the company’s new AI assistant that’s coming to WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram in the next couple of days.
Advertised as an advanced conversational assistant, Meta AI is still in beta, but it promises to provide users with real-time information and the ability to generate photorealistic images from their text prompts in seconds.
Powered by technology from Llama 2, Meta’s most recent language model research, the AI assistant has access to real-time information through the company’s newly revived partnership with Bing and offers a tool for image generation.
Besides Meta AI, 28 more AIs that users can message on WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram. To make these AIs feel more familiar, Meta has partnered with famous people to play and embody some of them. Each of these AIs has its own profile on Instagram and Facebook, so anyone can check them out.
