That artificial intelligence is fashionable is not a new thing. And those companies get on the bandwagon as well. However, what is new is AI coming to iPhone, this time from the hands of TikTok, Do you want to know what it is about? What will it involve? Here we tell you all the details!
TikTok’s new AI is in the oven
The name that is known for this new TikTok AI is Taco, and includes a chat that is within the platform. And although it’s not currently a function that’s open to the public, it’s already being tested “in a very small number of users,” as reported by 9to5Mac. And what is the purpose of this AI? Help users of the Platform find content of interest to them. But it also, as they explain, “answer a series of random questions.”
At the moment, it is not known whether Taco is based on its own AI model or if it is powered by models from third-party companies. What is known, thanks to screenshots accessed by The Verge, is that the interface is really simple. A window with a text bar at the bottom and messages appearing on the screen.
Users who already have access to this new AI can access it through the side menu on the right-hand side of the screen. When the carousel of videos is playing, there is a button in the shape of a ghost (looks like the one in PacMan) and if you click on it, it automatically opens the interface that you can interact with.
“Combined with AI, recommendations have become increasingly accurate. But beyond that, the more time people spend on TikTok, Being a chatbot can be a search engine for many users“, they explain to 9to5Mac. In addition to this feature, “TikTok explained to The Verge that this AI tool is rolling out to select users in the Philippines. But in addition, TikTok filed an application to register the Tako trademark Which shows that the company has a solid plan for AI.
AI applications are very present on iPhone
While the case of TikTok is evidence of a model that will integrate into the app itself, the truth is that the iPhone already has a number of AI applications for a wide variety of uses. One of them is the official ChatGPT application, with which we can have direct access to the chatbot without going to the website, as well as the possibility to subscribe to the ChatGPT+ payment plan within the application itself.
Other generative AI models have also been implemented in applications. Midjourney or static diffusion can already be used through a variety of apps to be able to produce impressive images in a matter of seconds. But even the ChatGPT model itself is in other apps that use the API to create assistants and chats with their own interfaces.
