Following several months of testing during the general elections, Meta is now opening up its AI chatbot, driven by Llama-3, to all Indian users. However, Meta AI does not presently support any other regional languages other than English.

In April, the business began rolling out Meta AI to a small number of users on Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger, and other platforms in India for testing. A few days later, the business formally launched the bot in over a dozen nations, but not in India, presumably because of the country’s upcoming general elections.

In addition to providing access to the chatbot via the search bar within its apps, Meta is also making the tool available via the website.

Meta AI functions similarly to other chatbots, such as ChatGPT from OpenAI, Gemini from Google, and Claude from Anthropic. It can help you write emails, organize exercises, make recipe suggestions, and summarize a great deal of text.

Depending on what you look for on Instagram, the chatbot can recommend Reels to watch. You can also ask questions about the post by using the Meta AI prompt that appears on the Facebook feed. Asking Meta AI for advice on the best locations and times to view the northern lights, for example, may be done if you come across a picture of the aurora borealis.

In response to your commands, Meta AI may also produce visuals. In May, TechCrunch discovered that when Meta AI generates photos of Indian guys, it has a significant tendency to add turbans. Other biases were the constant creation of an ancient Indian home with colorful wooden columns, pitched roofs, and vibrant colors.

Although Meta stated that it was updating its models on a regular basis at the time, it’s unclear if the business had made any adjustments in these areas.

Like with any generative AI systems, this one is young and might not always give us the answer we want. We’ve been continuously updating and improving our models since we debuted, and we’re still working to make them better,” a representative for the company said at the time to TechCrunch.

Together with hundreds of millions of other app users, Meta is expanding its chatbot to India, home to 500 million WhatsApp users. While you may communicate with Meta AI one-on-one on WhatsApp, you can also use the chatbot in a group chat to help with tasks like choosing a movie to watch or organizing a trip.

According to the business, Meta AI only has access to the text you use to mention or respond to the chatbot; it is not aware of the context of the group discussion. The company adjusted its model in response to the things you discussed with it.

According to Meta, users cannot disable or hide the Meta AI features within their app. On the other hand, users have the option to search without triggering the chatbot.

The social media giant launched its Gemini app for Android users in India a week ago, and it supports nine regional languages.
