Step into the world of Luzia, where artificial intelligence meets natural conversation. This Spain-based startup has created a groundbreaking AI assistant that operates seamlessly on popular messaging platforms like WhatsApp and Telegram. But what sets Luzia apart is its ability to interact in Spanish and Portuguese, catering to a market that has been largely underserved in terms of voice assistants.

Equipped with a powerful mix of language models, including OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 and GPT-4, Meta’s Llama 2, and Kandinsky 2.1, Luzia can understand and complete tasks through both voice and text interactions. Whether you want to transcribe, translate, or even generate images, Luzia has got you covered. And the best part? Its presence on encrypted messaging channels ensures a level of privacy that is hard to come by in today’s digital world.

With over 17 million active users worldwide and having processed more than 900 million messages, Luzia is already making waves. And with the recent $10 million Series A funding round led by Khosla Ventures, this startup is set to expand its English understanding and make its mark in the U.S. market.

The value of conversational AI assistants on messaging platforms like WhatsApp cannot be overstated. Just take a look at the success of JioMart’s WhatsApp chatbot for grocery shopping or the governmental chatbots that played a crucial role during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, imagine taking that convenience and flexibility to a whole new level with generative AI.

Luzia’s approach aligns perfectly with Meta’s experiment in celebrity-backed and voiced chatbots. By embedding their assistant in existing messaging services, Luzia is making it accessible to users who might not seek out standalone chatbots powered by large language models. The question remains: will Luzia’s approach create a long-term user base as people become more comfortable with generative AI conversations?


In a world where technology is constantly evolving, Luzia stands at the forefront of innovation. With its impressive funding and cutting-edge approach to AI chatbot assistants, this startup is set to transform the way we interact with technology. From simplifying tasks and boosting productivity to inspiring users in ways they’ve never imagined, Luzia is bringing the power of artificial intelligence to millions of people around the world.
