Meta, a major player in the tech industry, has made a significant move in the Artificial Intelligence landscape by launching its new artificial intelligence assistant, Meta AI.

This AI is now accessible across its popular platforms: WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger. Announced on Thursday, this deployment marks a significant enhancement in how users interact with these platforms.

Twitter users showed excitement over the Llama 3 model:

is designed to perform a variety of tasks, including answering queries, creating animations, and generating images. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, highlighted in a recent video that Meta AI operates on Meta Llama 3, their latest large language model which was also introduced on the same day.

This new tool is set to rival existing AI services like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini. However, Meta has taken a collaborative approach by integrating search engine results from Google and Microsoft, enriching the user experience.

Zuckerberg expressed confidence in Meta AI, stating, “We believe that Meta AI is now the most intelligent AI assistant that you can freely use.” Following the announcement, Meta’s stock saw an increase of over 1%.

Embedded directly within the search functionalities of WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger, Meta AI aims to streamline access to information and services for users.

For example, it can suggest local dining spots, assist in planning vacations, or offer decorating tips for new apartments.


Additionally, Meta AI is accessible through the website “,” where it can assist users with various tasks, from solving math problems to crafting professional emails. The platform allows users to save their conversation logs for future reference.

One of the standout features of Meta AI is its beta image-generation capability available on WhatsApp and the MetaAI website. As users begin typing, an image appears, with prompts from MetaAI to refine or modify the image. These images can also be converted into GIFs for sharing.

Initially introduced at Meta’s Connect event in September and now rolling out in English in over a dozen countries—including the USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia—Meta AI represents a significant advancement in how social media users interact with AI technologies.
