Meta has announced plans to unleash a host of new AI assistants, with a number of chatbots featuring familiar famous faces. The new AI chatbots will be available on Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger and will cover a range of topics, moving Meta's AI technology into the realms of 'fun' not just functionality. But I'm not convinced anyone wants it.

Making the announcement at Meta's annual Connect event, the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that 28 individual chatbots will be launched in beta, with the potential for more to come.  We're seeing lots of AI advancements recently, but I don't think this one will make it on the list of best AI productivity tools.
