How to use Meta AI in WhatsApp group chats

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, is unveiling an innovative feature that promises to transform group chats on WhatsApp.

The introduction of Meta AI to group chats opens up new ways to seek advice, ask questions and engage in discussions, all within the familiar confines of WhatsApp.

The Meta AI service, currently available in select countries, allows users to interact with an AI entity directly within group chats.

Users can initiate conversations with Meta AI by simply mentioning “@Meta AI” in the message field.

Once activated, Meta AI will respond to user queries and prompts, providing assistance, advice or information as requested.

To use the Meta AI feature, users follow a simple set of steps on WhatsApp:

1. Open the group chat: Navigate to the WhatsApp group chat where you want to interact with Meta AI.

2. Initiate Meta AI: Type “@” in the message field, followed by “Meta AI”. This will prompt you to enable the Meta AI service within the group chat.

3. **Accept Terms (if prompted)**: Users may be prompted to review and accept the terms and conditions associated with Meta AI. This step ensures compliance with Meta’s policies regarding AI interactions.

4. Ask your question: Once Meta AI is enabled, users can type their questions, queries or requests directly into the chat. Meta AI will then process the input and generate a response.

5. Receive the response: Meta AI’s response is displayed within the group chat, visible to all members participating in the conversation.

Users can also reply directly to Meta AI’s messages within the group chat. By hovering over the AI-generated message and selecting the reply option, users can engage in further dialogue with Meta AI, encouraging interactive and dynamic discussions within the group.

It’s important to note that Meta AI interactions are governed by Meta’s Privacy Policy and AI Terms of Service. In addition, users have the ability to delete individual chat messages with AI entities or request the deletion of shared information, ensuring control over their data and privacy.

While Meta AI represents a significant advancement in conversational AI technology, users should exercise discretion as some AI-generated messages may not always be accurate or appropriate.

With the integration of Meta AI, WhatsApp group chats will become more interactive, informative and engaging, ushering in a new era of collaborative communication on the platform.
