Snapchat announced the addition of a new feature, My AI. My AI is a chatbot based on OpenAI’s ChatGPT that can engage with Snapchat users.
Snapchat joins Meta, Spotify, YouTube, and others in the race to enhance social networking with artificial intelligence to attract more users and keep them engaged with their networks longer.
How To Access My AI On Snapchat
Snapchat launched its new chatbot as an experimental feature for subscribers of Snapchat+ in the United States.
Snapchat+ allows users to experience exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features first. It’s $3.99 monthly and available in several countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
This makes it less expensive than investing in ChatGPT Pro at $20 monthly.
In addition to first access to My AI, Snapchat+ offers users an exclusive badge, priority story replies, custom story expiration from one hour to one week, and story boosts that put your story ahead of others so more people will see it.
Add My AI As A Friend
To connect with My AI, visit its profile on Snapchat and add it as a friend.
Once you’ve added it as a friend, you can start chatting.
My AI Vs. ChatGPT
According to Snapchat support, My AI will be a friendly personal sidekick for Snapchat users accessible within the Snapchat app.
Users can ask the chatbot for answers to trivia questions, travel ideas, recipes, gifts for a specific person, poetry, and more.
My AI offers an experience that feels like engaging with another Snapchat, complete with a profile, avatar, and use of relevant emojis in responses.
Snapchat warns users that in the early stages, My AI may “hallucinate” and offer incorrect answers. You might spot a few in the upcoming examples.
Users are encouraged to submit feedback to Snapchat about any oddities they discover to help improve the feature before it is rolled out to all Snapchat users.
Similar to ChatGPT, Snapchat users are also advised not to give My AI confidential or sensitive information. Interactions with the chatbot may be analyzed to help improve the chat experience.
How Marketers & Content Creators Can Utilize My AI
Businesses can use My AI in various ways to better engage with customers on Snapchat. Here are a few examples to get you started!
