According to a Thursday feature tracker update reported by Gadget360, this new functionality is still in development and is not yet available to beta testers.

The feature will let users choose between the Llama 3-70B AI model and the more advanced Llama 3-405B AI model for a limited number of prompts.

The Llama 3-70B model is designed for quicker, simpler interactions, while the more advanced Llama 3-405B model, available for a limited number of weekly prompts, handles more complex queries.

As WhatsApp integrates Meta’s AI chatbot using the new LLaMA 3 models, understanding the dynamics between automated systems and human touch becomes crucial. For an in-depth exploration of this topic, read our detailed article on AI chatbots vs. human interaction.

While beta testers cannot yet see or interact with this feature, screenshots from WABetaInfo show a new “Meta Llama model” options menu where users can pick their preferred AI model.

The menu indicates that the Llama 3-70B model is “faster,” and the 3-405B model is “better for more complex prompts.”

The feature notes: “Preview the 405B model for a limited number of weekly prompts. After reaching your limit, use the 70B model to continue conversations.”

 

Although Meta released the 8B and 70B models in April, the 405B model is still in training. Meta plans to fine-tune the 405B model based on user interactions. This new feature is expected to significantly enhance the user experience on WhatsApp by providing more tailored and effective AI interactions.

Additionally, WhatsApp is exploring a video reply option, a departure from its text and voice chatting features. The discovery in WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.24.14.5 indicates the platform’s trend toward interactive and intuitive communications.

Users are advised to check the list to see if their smartphone is impacted. Despite their age, some people continue to use old smartphones and tablets because of their good hardware.

However, WhatsApp recommends using Android 5.0 and iOS 12 or newer for continued access to its services, ensuring safe and efficient messaging online.
