The social network Instagram is probably testing a chatbot with artificial intelligence. This is reported by The Verge with a link to Alessandro Paluzzi’s Twitter screenshot.
Potentially, the chatbot will be able to answer questions, give advice and help users write messages. In addition, users will be able to choose from among 30 artificial intelligence personalities to find the one they like the most.

The company has not made any such statements. However, the creation of chatbots is in line with its previous announcements about the ambitions in the field of artificial intelligence. For example, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said over the winter that the company is developing AI personas that can help people in a variety of ways, and that the company is exploring how to make such bots accessible through text conversations.
We remind you that recently Instagram launched a feature, which allows users to add up to 5 links to your profile bio. Links can direct followers, for example, to online businesses or brands of account holders. To do this, you need to click “Edit profile”, then “Links” and “Add external link”. Links can be specified in any order.
