About

Snapchat AI, also known as My AI or My AI Chat, is an artificial intelligence chatbot on Snapchat that was released in April 2023. My AI was created with OpenAI's ChatGPT, being a more restricted and mobile-friendly version of the software. Viral discourse and memes surfaced en masse upon the feature's release. Some of the most viral posts were on Twitter, including screenshots from users purportedly showing Snapcaht AI knowing their location, prompted by the question, "Where's the closest McDonald's?" Others got Snapchat AI to say the N-word, reveal its data or simply posted memes that portrayed them talking to it while alone and lonely.

On February 27th, 2023, the official Twitter[1] account of Snapchat tweeted that the company was rolling out My AI, a "personal AI sidekick located right in your Chat." The tweet gained over 570 likes in two months and included a promo video for the feature (shown below). This initial release was only for Snapchat Plus subscribers, however, the company planned to release it for all Snapchat users in the coming months.[2]


On April 19th, 2023, the Snapchat Twitter[3] posted a new announcement tweet and video, stating that the My AI chatbot was available for all Snapchat users. The tweet gained over 350 likes in five days (shown below).

Features

Snapchat's My AI runs on OpenAI's ChatGPT and is marketed as a faster, mobile-friendly and more restricted version of the software.[2] Additionally, the feature includes ephemeral data, as in, My AI data is deleted automatically within 24 hours, similar to Snapchat's general messaging.[4] Also, unlike regular ChatGPT, Snapchat's My AI is marketed more as a persona,[2] as in Snapchat encouraged its users to give it a nickname and provided the chatbot with a Bitmoji. The personification of My AI is similar to Replika AI.
