The tool will be accessible in any private conversation. To call on this artificial intelligence, users will only have to mention “@ai” in the conversation write field, which will open a conversation to ask for help or ask questions.
Instagram intends to surf on the trend of artificial intelligence to respond to the uses of its users. Indeed, more and more of them prefer to send direct messages rather than posting content on the news feed.
30 different personalities available
But what does the famous Instagram chatbot offer? The latter will be able to answer users’ questions, give them advice and even help them to have more inspiration to write messages. Instagram’s little extra? The user will be able to choose their personal chatbot from among thirty different personalities.
According to the testimony of Alessandro Paluzzi, engineer and mobile developer, the tool is being tested with a handful of users chosen by the platform.
This isn’t the first AI-based option Instagram is developing on its platform. The social network has already looked into creating stickers on its application using AI. Snapchat and LinkedIn have also unveiled new features generated by AI.
