WhatsApp, the widely utilized messaging application under the Meta umbrella, is set to introduce a convenient shortcut for accessing "AI-powered chats" in its upcoming update, as disclosed by WABetaInfo.
The anticipated update, marked as version 188.8.131.52, will be available for iPhones. Initially, the announcement about this update was directed towards Android versions of the messaging app, but it has now been extended to include iOS users as well.
As per the most recent update on the WhatsApp news monitoring platform, “WhatsApp is rolling out a feature that adds a shortcut to open AI-powered chats from the Chats tab, and it’s available to some users.”
The forthcoming progressive addition to the application emphasizes the company's commitment to showcasing and seamlessly incorporating AI-supported interactions into the everyday utilization of the messaging platform.
According to the provided screenshot, a novel button has appeared at the bottom right of the navigation bar on WhatsApp, enabling users to promptly access the AI-driven chat feature.
As per WABetaInfo, the AI-driven chats are presently accessible only to a particular set of users, and there's uncertainty regarding when it will be released more widely.
Nevertheless, users who install the latest WhatsApp version for iOS from the App Store might have the chance to explore this forthcoming feature.
The primary objective of implementing this shortcut is to minimize the time and energy needed to initiate these specific discussions.
Moreover, positioning the shortcut prominently within the Chats tab guarantees that users are adequately informed about this functionality, “encouraging the integration of AI-assisted interactions into their regular use of the messaging app”.
Following the beta testing phase, the update will be gradually released to a broader user base.
