Meta made some big announcements last week at their Connect event about AI coming to the entire family of apps, including WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, their smartglasses, which is Ray Ban smartglasses, and also the new VR headset MetaQuest 3. They’re all getting artificial intelligence. Basically you can use Meta AI in beta mode to get information, interact with the AI assistant. So lots of interesting new capabilities added to these devices and apps. Meta also rolled out the AI stickers feature across apps that lets you edit these images and also co create with your friends. They also launched 28different AI products and a new feature called AI Studio that lets you create and build your own AI (apps).
