Instagram Creators Using AI Versions Of Themselves

Instagram is rolling out a new “AI Studio” tool that allows creators to make AI chatbot versions of themselves.

This feature was initially available as an early test in the US with AI chatbots primarily appearing in messaging and be clearly labeled as AI — aiming to help creators answer follower questions and provide engaging interactions rather than auto-responses or no response at all.

Zuckerberg mentioned that Meta plans to expand this tool to small businesses and other entities, allowing them to create AI characters for enhanced user interaction.

YouTube Seeking Music Deals With Major Record Labels

YouTube is negotiating deals with major record labels, including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Records, to legally train its AI music tools using licensed songs.

This move follows the debut of its generative AI feature last year and aims to expand its capabilities by licensing music from more artists.

The company plans to offer lump-sum payments for these licenses, rather than royalty-based arrangements.
