Like our recent AI Assistant launch Meta has introduced new features to their AI technology that personal trainers can enjoy.

One feature called "reimagine" allows you to create and share images with friends in group chats. Reels, another feature, helps you discover new experiences in Meta AI chats.

On Facebook, Meta AI enhances your experience by helping with tasks like creating birthday greetings and converting images.

For creators, suggested replies in DMs make engaging with audiences faster. The feature is now available on the web. Meta is also improving their other AIs by adding search and long-term memory capabilities.


Meta: WhatsApp Latest Updates


Instant Voice Messages
In 2021, WhatsApp introduced View Once, a feature that added an extra layer of privacy by allowing users to send photos and videos that would disappear after being viewed. To follow up on this, they have recently launched “View Once” for Voice Messages

What does this mean for you as a personal trainer? It means that you can now send voice messages with added privacy and peace of mind. Whether you need to read your credit card details to a friend or share sensitive information for a surprise.

Even better, WhatsApp ensures the security of your personal messages through end-to-end encryption by default.

As personal trainers, communication is crucial, and staying up-to-date with the latest tools can enhance your interaction with clients. Why not try out the PT Distinction communication features?


Meta: Facebook Latest Updates

Back in December, Meta announced a burst of updates to its messenger app. This has been a long time in the making, as the whole app has been rebuilt. So, here is what is new.

Edit a Message
Are you someone who has ever sent a message too soon or wished you could make changes to a message you've already sent? Well, now you can! Facebook Messenger is introducing a new feature that allows you to edit messages for up to 15 minutes after sending them.
