    1. Great question! We’ll be launching this work out to Woo Express customers over the next couple of weeks. Beyond this release we’re looking to bring this functionality to the broader WooCommerce ecosystem in the future. It’s also worth noting that this work is purely for our experimental functionality whereas we have a lot more AI work headed out to various WooCommerce products throughout the remainder of this year.

      1. Very interested in seeing the future AI work headed into WooCommerce products in 2023.

  1. can we download woo ai from somewhere and use for our own hosted websites?
