1/6 In September 2023, Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, made a big announcement that it was adding its own native AI chatbot called Meta AI to all of its messaging services. As a result, the chatbot was added to Facebook Messenger, Instagram Direct Messages (DM), and WhatsApp. In September, Meta AI was released in a limited capacity as part of its beta testing, but now it is available to users in the US.

3/6 What is interesting about Meta AI is that it has also added a bunch of different personalities that you can interact with. These show up as profiles on Facebook Messenger and Instagram. All you have to do is click on them and speak with their AI replicas. Some of the notable people with Meta AI persona include Charli D’Amelio as Coco, Dance enthusiast, MrBeast as Zach, Paris Hilton as Amber, Tom Brady as Bru, and more.  (Meta)

4/6 Meta AI can also recommend Reels. This is a new feature which was announced on December 6. Users can go to Meta AI ask it to show Reels for a particular theme and the chatbot will deliver.  In a blog post, the company said, “Say you’re planning a trip to Tokyo with friends in your group chat, you can ask Meta AI to recommend the best places to visit and share Reels of the top sites to help you decide which attractions are must-sees”.

5/6 Another new feature introduced is called ‘reimagine’ which will be available only in group chats. This is how it works: Meta AI generates and shares the initial image you requested, then your friend can press and hold on the picture to riff on it with a simple text prompt and Meta AI will generate an entirely new image.  (Meta)

Additionally, Meta is also testing a feature that will let users see highlights of the conversations in group chats that they missed out on. (Meta)

Meta Quest 3s specs leaked

According to screenshots of the alleged “Meta User Research Zoom” meeting posted by u/LuffySanKira on Reddit (via Lunayian), Meta's upcoming headset may be called Quest 3s and not Quest 3 Lite. The graphics also hint at a few specs of the device and suggest that while it may be more affordable, it will come at a cost.

As per the report, the Meta Quest 3s may come with a 1920 x 1832 resolution with 20 PPD, whereas the Quest 3 features a 2208 x 2064 resolution with 25.5 PPD. Moreover, it may have 256GB of internal storage, which is half of what the Quest 3 offers. The graphics also include a side-by-side design comparison between the two headsets from Meta's Quest 3 family.

In the renders, the Quest 3s appears to be slightly smaller in size compared to Quest 3. The images also hint at more sensors on the front of the Quest 3s. At present, the Quest 3 has 3 cutouts for sensors on the front, whereas the images suggest that the Quest 3s could have as many as 6.

Thus, if the leaks are anything to go by, then the Meta Quest 3s may cut down on features to bring down the price. However, do note that all the information is based on unofficial reports whose credibility isn't confirmed, and thus should be taken with a pinch of salt.
