It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that this year is the year of AI. Artificial intelligence chatbots seem to be everywhere in what appears to be a short span of time.
Social media was the only significant platform where AI had yet to appear. However, Snapchat has taken the lead in this regard by introducing its integrated AI chatbot, known as ‘My AI.’
What is Snapchat My AI?
Snapchat’s My AI chatbot uses the latest GPT technology from OpenAI, the team behind ChatGPT.
Although customized for Snapchat, it would be available as a separate chat in your Snapchat chat lists with the default moniker ‘My AI.’
You can personalize the name and make it your own AI.
How to get Snapchat My AI?
My AI is currently only accessible with a Snapchat+ subscription. Snapchat+ provides exclusive access to experimental features in the app. The pricing varies in different countries, but it’s $3.99 per month in the US.
Snapchat is gradually rolling out access to the chatbot, and at present, it is only available to Snapchat+ subscribers in the United States. The rest of the world will gain access slowly.
What can I use Snapchat My AI for?
You can use My AI chatbot for a variety of purposes, such as asking for birthday gift recommendations for your BFF, writing a haiku, or planning a hiking trip. Similar to other AI chatbots, Snapchat’s My AI may also produce hallucinations and say anything when tricked. Therefore, it’s crucial to be aware of its shortcomings.
Conversations with My AI are recorded and may be reviewed by the team to improve the product. Hence, it’s advised not to share any sensitive or confidential information with the chatbot.
Moreover, the AI can occasionally produce biased, incorrect, harmful, or misleading information, despite its training.
How to Use Snapchat My AI?
To use Snapchat’s My AI, it is automatically enabled for Snapchat+ subscribers in supported countries (US, at the time of writing).
1. Open the Snapchat app.
2. Swipe right to access your chats, and tap the ‘My AI‘ chat from the threads to chat with the chatbot.
3. Type your query in the message box, tap ‘Send,’ and My AI will reply to the best of its abilities.
If it provides incorrect or harmful results, press and hold the result to submit feedback to the Snapchat team.
Having a personal AI chatbot in your social media app will undoubtedly make social interactions with friends much more fascinating and exciting.
