WhatsApp Integrates Advanced AI Chatbot, Elevating Messaging Experience

WhatsApp is integrating an advanced AI chatbot based on Meta's LlaMa 2 model, positioning it as a formidable competitor to ChatGPT. Additionally, the app is enhancing group interactions with a new voice chat feature, designed for groups of 33 to 128 participants, further enriching the user experience.

WhatsApp is on the brink of a significant transformation with the introduction of an advanced AI chatbot, a move that positions it as a direct competitor to the renowned ChatGPT. This development, initially reported by Wabetainfo, marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of the popular messaging application, promising to redefine user interaction with AI technology.

Meta’s AI model, LlaMa 2 — designed to rival GPT-4 — is set to power the new chatbot feature within WhatsApp. Currently, the feature is in its beta stage, version, and is accessible to a limited number of users. The full extent of the chatbot’s functionalities remains undisclosed, but the anticipation around it suggests a transformative impact on the app’s user experience.

WhatsApp has strategically integrated the chatbot feature for easy accessibility. Located just above the icon for starting new conversations, this placement ensures that users can effortlessly access the AI-powered chatbot for any queries — without the hassle of navigating through recent chats or new conversation tabs.

In addition to the AI chatbot, WhatsApp is introducing another feature set to enrich user experience — the new voice chat for groups, akin to Twitter’s Spaces and Clubhouse. This feature allows users to initiate voice chats from the top of their screen, enabling them to join or listen to ongoing conversations at their leisure. Specifically designed for groups with 33 to 128 participants, this feature aims to create a dynamic and flexible group call environment, enhancing the app’s group interaction capabilities.
