Struggling Meta plans to put “AI” into all of its flagship products
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at the company’s internal meeting on Thursday that generative AI features will be rolled out in a big way across all of its flagship products in the coming days. Zuckerberg even previewed a few generative AI features, including a text prompt that will let users modify their own photos before sharing them on Instagram. An AI agent that will help improve the chat experience on WhatsApp and Messenger as well. These announcements mark a shift in Meta’s strategy, as it has been fairly slow to introduce generative AI features while its rivals have already jumped ship.
