Google could challenge Character.ai

Gemini Google IO 2024 1

A little while back, an AI tool called Character.ai hit the scene, and it was pretty popular. As is the nature of big business, every time a company makes a popular product, a large corporation needs to throw its money around and make its own take. According to a new report, Google is working on a product to challenge Character.ai.

In case you don’t know what Character.ai is, it’s a platform that allows you to chat with other folks. As you could guess, the people you’re talking to don’t exist. It’s a platform that allows you to chat with AI-generated personas. You can chat with AI versions of celebrities, cartoon characters, etc. Along with that, you can also chat with other generic personas like teachers, scientists, or other professionals.

Character.ai gives you the ability to craft your own AI personas. You can give them a name, personality, and other attributes. If you’re a person who knows how to code models, then you’re able to further customize your character. If you want to know more information about it, you can check out our guide on what Character.ai is.

Google could launch a product to challenge Character.ai

Google is a trillion-dollar company, so it seems a little unfair that it’s creating a product targeted at a product from a start-up. However, Twitter did the same thing with Twitter Spaces.

Right now, we don’t know much about what the company is planning on doing, but we know that Google is looking to create a platform to interact with AI-generated personas. Since this is Google, we know that it will be powered by Gemini. Other than that, other information is pretty scarce.

According to a report from The Information, Google could possibly partner with influencers and other notable figures to license their likeness. Imagine chatting with an AI replica of Mr. Beast or Will Smith. This is what could make this tool stand out. There are services that already allow users to do this, but they don’t have explicit permission to do so. So, if Google gets permission, then it could mitigate any potential legal issues.

We’re going to need to wait for more information about this tool.
