Recently, Snapchat announced that they are rolling out an AI-powered chatbot named My AI to the Snapchat+ subscribers of this app. Snapchat+ feature was announced in June and it cost around $3.99 per month. The Chatbot is based on the Open AI ChatGPT technology which is also associated with Microsoft Bing AI. This feature holds the capability of recommending weekend plans, ideas for gifts, recipes, and many other suggestions. Users of this feature can customize their name and can change the background of their chat as an experimental feature.
But still, Snap warned its users through a press release that AI chatbot can trick the users as there are deficiencies too in this feature. The CEO and founder of Snapchat Evan Spiegel shared their views on the transformative potential of AI technology for the company. The owners of other companies like Nvidia and Meta also made the same pronouncements on the earning calls. Spiegel said that it is a big idea that we usually talk to our friends and family on daily basis but now we will talk to AI daily.
Using AI on Snapchat
My AI Snapchat is an experimented and friendly chatbot available only for Snapchat+ subscribers who are the ones who have gained access to the latest features of the app. This subscription started in the USA. My AI is a personal sidekick for the Snap chatters with whom they chat. My AI can answer trivia questions, can offer suggestions for gifts, can help you plan a trip, or can give you suggestions for dinner. You can also tell My AI about your preferences and can give it a nickname too. The team of Snapchat is working with Open AI to bring the My AI for snap chatters which are built using the latest ChatGPT. My AI can also be helpful in content creation but content creators should mention that they have sought help from My AI for their content creation.
All the interactions made with My AI can be stored until or unless a person deletes them. It is also said that the more you interact with your AI, the more the chances of getting to know each other and better responses.
Deleting the data on My AI
There is a feature for hiding messages to My AI in the available chat which can be used for 24 hours. You can delete the entire history of My AI chat using the following steps:
- Tap on the profile icon of your Snapchat ID and go to the settings option.
- Scroll the privacy controls option.
- Tap on the option of clear data.
- Tap on the option of Clear My AI chat Queries and confirm to clear the history.
In this way, you can clear all your chat history and data.
Other than this, it is recommended not to use My AI for generating political, sexually harassing, or deceptive content which might create problems for others. Other than this, never use My AI for promoting violence, human trafficking, and spam content that might violate the community guidelines of the app. Your city-level location and interaction with My AI will be used extensively. Other than this, they will also use your data to improve the features of My AI so that they can make It more relevant and easier to use for you.
My AI is embraced by professionals
Professionals in the IT and technology field have diversely and strongly accepted the ChatGPT for producing written content and performing legal functions. ChatGPT was launched in December for the first time for public use and users have acquired it faster. It has been estimated that there were around 57 million monthly active users in the first month of its availability which is a huge success.
Snapchat has warned its users that My AI is more prone to hallucinations and it can trick its user by saying anything unexpected too so it is better to be aware of the deficiencies. Moreover, Snapchat also says that the company will store the conversation of their users with My AI and will review it later for improving the accuracy for better working in the future. This thing does not encourage the users to share their secrets or rely on My AI for all advice. It is recommended that users can ask about dinner or gift suggestions to My AI.
