With every significant tech company pushing their respective AI chatbots and tools, the Mark Zuckerberg-led Meta was seen pushing Generative AI to race against tech giants like Microsoft, Google and OpenAI. Meta AI chatbot was tested with select users across India in a suite of products, said reports. Now, WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature inviting new contacts.

WhatsApp's beta channel announced that the new WhatsApp feature will be rolled out soon for all users.
