How to Remove/Turn Off Meta AI on WhatsApp?

In this article, I will show you how to remove Meta AI on WhatsApp.

This is a recently launched feature that is currently available in limited countries. For those who are not yet aware, it’s an optional service from Meta that can answer your questions, teach you something, or even help you come up with new ideas.
