With the resounding success of ChatGPT, the OpenAI company’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbot, more and more technology companies have been looking for ways to create their own products of this kind in order not to be left behind in the market. One of them is the Instagrama photo and video application belonging to Meta, which must have an AI chatbot integrated into its system at some point in the future.
The information was leaked by developer Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) via Twitter. In his post, Paluzzi says: “Instagram is working to bring AI agents (bots) into your conversations for a more fun and engaging experience. AI agents will be able to answer questions and give advice. You will be able to choose from 30 personalities many different”.

In addition to the explanations, Paluzzi also shows an image of the AI chatbot planned by Instagram. In it, in addition to the functions already mentioned, we discovered that the resource also intends to help users to be more “creative” and write messages. That is, if you don’t know very well how to answer a question or comment, the chatbot will give you instructions, formulating suitable answers.
When will it be launched?
It is still unclear how the AI chatbot would be made or applied within the photo and video platform. However, as we well know, Meta has already used some AI-centric technologies in other of its products, like the AI Sandbox, for example, which is intended to help users create ads. Mark Zuckerberg’s company also recently announced an AI-powered coding tool called CodeCompose. However, it is not yet publicly available.
For now, Instagram has not officially commented on the leak brought by Paluzzi. It is also worth mentioning that, as the AI chatbot project would still be being tested and developed, it may not see the light of day in the end, if it does not add or not work correctly in the application. We’ll have to wait and see!
