“We are initially launching AIs exclusively in the US. To engage with Meta AI, users can initiate a new message and select ‘Create an AI chat’ within our messaging platforms, or simply type ‘@MetaAI’ in a group chat,” said the company.
Through a variety of AI personalities inspired by celebrities like MrBeast and Charli D’Amelio, the Meta AI assistant is set to expand its presence across WhatsApp. These characters, represented by well-known figures such as Tom Brady, MrBeast, and Naomi Osaka, are tailored to serve various roles, ranging from participating in sports discussions to delivering comedic content and offering expertise in cosplay.
Meta AI is set to integrate with Instagram’s Reels offering users suggestions for travel destinations derived from video reviews, dance tutorials, and creative project ideas.
