Snapchat is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, with over 375 million daily active users. Recently, Snapchat introduced a new AI feature that has taken the platform to new heights, and it is pretty amazing what this chatbot can do.

What is My AI?

My AI is an experimental, friendly chatbot currently available to Snapchatters. According to Snapchat, My AI is powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology, with additional attributes and safety controls unique to Snapchat.

Here at Escapade, we will explore five features you can do with Snapchats My AI.

Feature 1: Customise Avatar

Snapchat’s My AI is marketed as a personal chatbot that users can customise to their liking, much like their own Bitmoji. Users can modify the name and the appearance of their My AI chatbot by simply tapping on its avatar and then selecting ‘Customise’. From there, they can choose various attributes such as skin tone, hair colour, and face shape, as well as outfits from a range of options.

Feature 2: Suggestions for Lenses

My AI offers a unique feature that allows users to ask for suggestions to Snapchat Lenses. With this feature, My AI provides an immersive and interactive experience that helps users engage with the app’s diverse range of features.

Feature 3: Share Images and Videos with My AI

Snapchat users can now effortlessly share their snapshots and videos with My AI, which not only reacts but also recognises significant elements in your photo/video.

Feature 4: Jokes and Play Text-Based Games

Another feature that My AI offers is the ability to tell jokes. Users can simply ask the chatbot to share a joke, and it will respond to a witty one-liner or a funny punchline. In addition, My AI offers text-based games like “Would You Rather?” which will keep users entertained for hours.

Feature 5: Suggestions for Local Activities and Dining

My AI can assist users in discovering exciting local activities by leveraging the Snap Map to provide tailored recommendations, as well as giving users suggestions for dinner ideas, making planning a night out even easier.

Here at Escapade, we are truly fascinated by the functionality of Snapchat’s My AI and the creative ways other Snapchat users are utilising the chatbot. This cutting-edge technology has become a fun and exciting addition to the app.
