Recently, Meta released a blog post from their Quest team outlining their top three predictions for 2024 and beyond. 

1. The Growth of the Metaverse

Meta predicts that the metaverse will continue to grow and expand in the coming years. This prediction is backed by the fact that their metaverse division recently crossed a billion dollars in revenue. 

2. On-Device AI

The second prediction is the rise of on-device AI, where AI runs on a device like a computer or mobile phone. Meta predicts a hybrid model where some AI runs on the cloud and some on the device. An example of this is Meta’s Ray Ban Glass. 

3. Mobile Business Messaging

The third trend is the growth of mobile business messaging on apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook. AI will play a crucial role in empowering these conversations.
