WhatsApp is on the verge of taking a giant leap into the future with the introduction of an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, currently in the beta testing phase. Meta, the mastermind behind WhatsApp, is poised to change the game in user experience, and here’s everything you need to know.
In September of this year, Meta announced with great fanfare that it would bring an AI chatbot to its platforms, and now it seems they are delivering on their promise. Building on the powerful natural language processing technology called Llama 2, this chatbot is designed to take conversations to a whole new level.

The latest beta version of WhatsApp, specifically v18.104.22.168, has uncovered an incredibly handy shortcut in the Chats tab—the AI chatbot shortcut. Right above the chat icon, this shortcut allows you to initiate the AI chatbot with a single tap, ready to perform tasks within the app based on your instructions.
Meta spared no effort in building this AI chatbot, collaborating with Microsoft Bing to provide web answers to your queries. The idea is that you can get information, make inquiries, and perform actions within WhatsApp more quickly and efficiently, all thanks to artificial intelligence.
For now, the feature is available only to a select group of WhatsApp beta users, but it is expected to roll out on a large scale in the coming days. Meta is not only working on introducing AI to WhatsApp, but several applications from the company will also witness it.
