What is Meta’s AI assistant?

Meta AI chatbot is a virtual assistant that uses machine learning algorithms to respond to user queries conversationally. Since this AI bot is available to limited users in a few countries, it supports only the English language. The chatbot will be a part of Meta-owned apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.


Similar to OpenAI‘s ChatGPT, Microsoft’s Bing AI or Google’s Bard, the Meta AI chatbot can provide real-time information by searching the web. Mark Zuckerberg’s new AI bot is based on Llama 2, which the company released in 2023. Additionally, Meta AI can generate customised images with text prompts.

Meta AI can be used for the following:

  • Search the web: Get real-time data from Bing AI and quickly surf online information.
  • Have a conversation: Any user can chit-chat with this AI bot for fun.
  • Get answers: Type @MetaAI and ask any type of question and this AI assistant will try to solve your queries.
  • Interact with AI characters: Users can chat with characters of popular celebrities such as Tom Brady, Mr. Beast, etc.
