Meta’s AI Chatbot Lands in India: Chat with Meta AI on WhatsApp and Instagram


Meta, the social media giant, has officially rolled out its AI chatbot in India, bringing artificial intelligence directly into users’ messaging experience. The chatbot, known as Meta AI, is now available on both WhatsApp and Instagram, offering a range of features to enhance interactions within these platforms.


Meta AI is a versatile assistant powered by a large language model. It enables users to engage in conversations, find information, and receive recommendations—all within the familiar interface of WhatsApp and Instagram. Similar to other AI models like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Copilot, Meta AI can answer questions, generate text and images, translate languages, and provide creative suggestions.

Key Features:

  1. Conversational Assistance: Users can interact with Meta AI in both personal and group chats. Whether you need advice, news updates, or creative prompts, Meta AI is there to assist.
  2. Image Generation: By using prompts, users can generate photorealistic images directly within the chat. Whether it’s visualizing an idea or creating content, Meta AI offers a powerful image generation capability.
  3. Language Translation: This AI can translate languages, making it useful for cross-cultural communication.

How to Access Meta AI on WhatsApp:

  1. Update WhatsApp: Ensure that you have the latest version of WhatsApp installed from the Play Store or App Store.
  2. Look for the Icon: After updating, check for a new round purple-blue circle icon at the top of your WhatsApp chat. iOS users will find it near the camera icon.
  3. Tap the Icon: If you see the Meta AI icon, tap on it to accept the terms. Your AI chatbot will open, ready to assist you.

Also, open any chat (individual or group) and type “@” followed by “Meta AI” in the message bar. You might be prompted to accept the terms of service before you begin.

How to Use Meta AI on Instagram:

  1. Update Instagram: Make sure you have the latest version of Instagram installed.
  2. Search Button: Tap the search button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Blue Ring: If you have access to Meta AI, you’ll notice a blue ring in the search bar. Tap the ring and ask your question using either the microphone or text prompts.
  4. Explore Features: Engage with the chatbot to ask questions, generate content, or seek recommendations.

Important Note:

While regular WhatsApp conversations are end-to-end encrypted, interactions with Meta AI are not encrypted. It uses user data and prompts to train its AI, so keep this in mind when using the chatbot.

Meta’s move to introduce AI chatbots across its platforms reflects its commitment to enhancing user experiences. As India becomes a crucial market for Meta, the integration of AI aims to empower users with intelligent assistance and creative capabilities.

Remember, when chatting with the AI, you’re engaging with cutting-edge technology that’s shaping the future of communication. Enjoy exploring the possibilities! 🤖🌟
