Meta is finally releasing its AI chatbot in India, here is how you can use it on WhatsApp

Meta has finally launched its artificial intelligence assistant on WhatsApp, allowing users to integrate AI directly into their messaging experience. Currently, the new Meta AI is only available in English and is limited to a select few countries, including India. It is offering users the ability to have conversations, find information, and get recommendations directly within WhatsApp.

Just like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google’s Gemini, and Microsoft’s Copilot, the Meta AI feature on WhatsApp offers a variety of AI features, including answering questions on various topics, generating text and images, translating languages, and suggesting ideas. Users can interact with Meta AI in group chats to seek advice, request news updates, and even generate images using prompts in a dedicated chatbox, all within personal or group conversations.

However, it’s important to note that while regular WhatsApp conversations use end-to-end encryption, anything you ask Meta AI within a conversation is not encrypted. According to Meta, this is because they use user data and prompts to train their AI. “Meta AI can only read and reply to questions that mention @Meta AI, not any others. As always, your personal messages and calls remain end-to-end encrypted, meaning not even WhatsApp or Meta can see or listen to them.,” says Meta.

How to use Meta AI on WhatsApp

Meta is rolling out Meta AI on WhatsApp gradually. To check if you’ve received the update, first update your WhatsApp to the latest version available on the Play Store or App Store. Once updated, check for a new round purple-blue circle icon at the top of your WhatsApp chat. For iOS users, the icon will be seen in the top right corner of WhatsApp near the camera icon.

If the Meta AI icon is available, tap on it, accept the terms, and your Meta AI chatbot on WhatsApp will open. In this chatbot, you can ask Meta AI questions, interact, or even generate images using prompts. You can also use Meta AI in both personal and group chats on WhatsApp.

To use Meta AI in WhatsApp chats:

  • Open the chat or group chat on WhatsApp where you’d like to use AI.
  • Type “@” in the message field, then tap “Meta AI.”
  • If prompted, read and accept the terms.
  • Type your prompt. For images, you can type prompts like “Generate an image of a flying pig,” similar to how you use prompts in DALL-E or Copilot.
  • Tap send. The AI’s response will be displayed in the chat.

You can also reply to messages from Meta AI:

  • Swipe right on the AI message.
  • Type your message.
  • Tap send.

While Meta can see conversations marked with Meta AI, it also offers users the option to delete individual chats with AIs or request the deletion of information previously shared with Meta AI.
