Snapchat on Wednesday at its annual developer conference announced its Open AI Chat GPT-based technology called ‘My AI’. The social media platform launched the feature in February. It allowed paid subscribers to chat with the bot on the application.

The My AI feature will now be available for free, Snapchat said. The company added that its users have sent as many as 2 million messages per day using the chatbot.

My AI will also be upgraded with other functions – one will be able to add it on group chats, get recommendations for places on Snap Map and Lenses and share Snaps with the bot.

“In a chat conversation, My AI can answer a burning trivia question, offer advice on the perfect gift for your BFF’s birthday, help plan a hiking trip for a long weekend, or suggest what to make for dinner,” Snapchat said.

A Snapchat user can also give nicknames to their My AI. The company in its release said that the Chat GPT-like bot is currently improving and its responses ‘may include biased, incorrect, harmful, or misleading content’.

“Because My AI is an evolving feature, you should always independently check answers provided by My AI before relying on any advice, and you should not share confidential or sensitive information.”

How can ‘Snapchatters’ send feedback?

The social media platform said that a user can send feedback by ‘long pressing on any response from My AI to share more on what they’d like to see more or less of while we continue to train My AI’.

Are the interactions stored?

Yes. The company said that My AI stores all conversations until one deletes them. It is expected to learn the user over time and give relevant responses.
