Snapchat launched an AI Chatbot
Snapchat’s parent company, Snap, has announced a new artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot for Snapchat. It is based on OpenAI’s latest version of his GPT technology and is named My AI. This chatbot is an experimental feature for Snapchat subscribers, as the company declared in a blog on Monday.
The most exciting part about the My AI Chatbot is that users can name it whatever they want. In addition to that, it also allows users to customize their wallpapers of the chats.
The company has declared that the My AI Chatbot will be available for users this week. In the blog post, Snapchat mentioned that My AI primarily gives you recommendations ranging from last-minute ideas to planning a long weekend trip. It can also provide you with recipes to prepare a quick dinner. Plus, similar to ChatGPT, you can write poems about love, or you can write poems about cheddar cheese.
In this blog post, you will understand all you need to know about this exciting launch of Snapchat, the My AI Chatbot.
Who will get to use Snapchat’s new AI Chatbot?
Snapchat says it has adopted GPT technology for My AI. For now, as an experimental feature, the chatbot is only available to subscribers of Snapchat+, the premium version that costs around $3.99 monthly.
What are the features of My AI we know so far?
For instant messaging services, the chatbot runs on the latest version of GPT technology developed by OpenAI.
Following a popular customization trend, users can give their chatbot a name and select a chat wallpaper to make it unique. However, keep in mind that over-customization can blur the lines between humans and AI, at least at first glance.
Recently, artificial intelligence chatbots have started to “hallucinate.” The chatbot manipulated the information and presented the wrong answer as if it were true.
After carefully recognizing this threat, Snapchat warned users that My AI was also prone to hallucinations. So one can be tricked into saying random things, urging people to know its downsides.
Please remember that conversations with My AI are saved and can get reviewed to improve product quality. Therefore, Snapchat asked its users not to share secrets or seek advice. But the company likes to hear feedback from its users which you can leave feedback by long-pressing on a message in My AI.
Although My AI will initially be available only to Snapchat Plus subscribers for $3.99 per month, any Snapchat user can use this feature in the future. The company aims to bring it to all its 750 million monthly users to use My AI soon. So stay tuned to learn more exciting features of Snapchat’s new AI Chatbot as soon as it releases.
