Snapchat is releasing its own AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT

Snapchat's new chatbot is run by OpenAI's ChatGPT, which has been updated to the newest version. Snap CEO Evan Spiegel has stated that they are placing a wager on the widespread adoption of AI chatbots.

Snapchat's bot, aptly dubbed "My AI," will be shown prominently on the app's chat tab, just above users' ongoing group conversations. Snapchat's 750 million monthly users will initially only be able to access the bot if they pay the monthly $3.99 Snapchat Plus fee.

"The big idea is that we're going to talk to AI every day, just like we talk to our friends and family every day And as a messaging service, we are in a good place to do this."

At first, My AI is just a quick, mobile-friendly version of ChatGPT that is built into Snapchat. The main difference is that Snap's version can only answer a smaller number of questions.

Snap's employees have taught it to follow the company's trust and safety rules and not give answers that include swearing, violence or opinions about controversial topics like politics.

It also doesn't have the features that got ChatGPT banned in some schools. For example, I tried to get it to write academic essays on different topics, but it politely declined. Snap plans to keep making changes to My AI as more people use it and tell it when it gives wrong answers.

After trying My AI, it's clear that Snap doesn't even feel the need to explain ChatGPT, which shows that OpenAI has built the fastest-growing consumer software product in history.

 Unlike OpenAI's ChatGPT interface, Snap's My AI didn't come with any tips or rules for how to use it. It starts with a chat page that is empty, waiting for a conversation to begin.
