Facebook parent Meta is starting to roll out its artificial intelligence chatbot Meta AI in India as part of its efforts to scale up its AI offerings in an intensely competitive market.

According to reports, Meta AI will be available in English across the company's suite of apps, including WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. It will also be available through the recently launched website.

This launch comes months after Meta tested the AI chatbot with a section of users in India, its largest market with a combined subscriber base of over a billion across its apps.

It had also rolled out the chatbot to more than a dozen countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.

According to the company, built with Meta Llama 3, Meta AI is one of the world’s leading AI assistants. The company further explained a number of use cases of Meta AI in India.
