According to reports, Koo, a social media platform based in India, integrates OpenAI’s ChatGPT to help users create posts more efficiently.
Koo users can now use ChatGPT directly on the app to draft posts on topics such as current events, politics, and popular culture, Mayank Bidawatka, Koo’s co-founder, told reporters in an interview.
Bidawatka further stated, “This feature will help creators find inspiration for their content. They can request ChatGPT to provide them with trending news in their area and then write their ideas accordingly.”
Last month, two tech giants, Microsoft, and Alphabet’s Google, each revealed their own AI chatbots that can scrap and rewrite information from across the internet in response to questions. Additionally, Snap Inc, the parent company of Snapchat, also launched a chatbot powered by ChatGPT trained to have a playful and amiable tone.
According to Bidawatka, Koo will be the first platform to integrate this technology into the post-composition process. Users can input their prompts directly into ChatGPT or utilize Koo’s voice command function.
Bidawatka noted that approximately 20% of Koo’s users are actively generating content on the platform, and integrating ChatGPT could potentially boost this percentage.
Initially, verified accounts on Koo will have access to this functionality, with the feature becoming accessible to all users in the near future.
Koo intends to examine the option of using labels to distinguish between posts created with or without the help of ChatGPT.
According to Bidawatka, it is important for individuals to be aware of whether the content is AI-generated.
