Meta has announced it will be launching multiple artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots with a range of different personalities as early as September – as it battles to retain users.

Similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard, Meta has reportedly been manufacturing chatbots that are able to have “humanlike discussions”.

Unlike the aforementioned rivals, however, Meta is reportedly looking to launch chatbots with chatbots range of different personalities; including one that parodies as Abraham Lincoln.

The news comes as the company looks to grow and retain engagement on its platforms, as the social media giant battles against the popularity of apps like TikTok.

During an earnings call with employees on Wednesday, Zuckerberg said he has a vision for AI “agents that act as assistants, coaches or that can help you interact with businesses and creators”.

As well as Abraham Lincoln, the social media giant has reportedly been working on a chatbot that speaks like a surfer and can provide directions to users.
