Meta AI is Now Available on All Meta Apps And Users Are Having Mixed Reactions

Meta has introduced AI on its apps recently and now users cannot escape it no matter how hard they try. The prompt is “Ask Meta AI anything” which appears at the search tab of Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram. The AI which is powering this tool on all apps is a large language model called Llama 3. Meta says that Llama 3 is the most powerful AI tool right now and users can ask it anything completely for free.

The CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, says that Meta is soon going to have the most powerful and best AI tool that everyone in the world is going to use. LLama 3 is available in 12 more countries outside the USA. Even with various advantages of the AI tool on Meta apps, many users are not satisfied with this change. They say that they are being forced into using the AI tool as it was added into the apps without their consent. Some users are also finding ways to remove AI from apps like Facebook, Instagram and Meta.

LLama 3 is just like other AI chatbots like ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini. You can ask it any general knowledge related questions or can ask it to write a text. It is also capable of making AI generated images by imagining a character or person. Similarly, you can also ask it to make GIFs out of images or videos provided by the users. Hence, it is capable of doing everything you can expect from an AI chatbot.

Mark Zuckerberg shared that he wanted to make Meta AI available for everyone and his goal was to bring AI to social media apps. Meta AI isn’t a standalone app like ChatGPT. But even if it is connected to your Meta accounts, it still doesn’t know your personal information and will ask you about it. As for removing Meta AI from your accounts, it isn’t possible. When it was initially launched, many users claimed that they asked Meta AI if they can disable it and it answered with a yes. But now, Meta AI says that you cannot disable it from your social media apps.
