Snapchat announced today at its Snap Partner Summit that its AI chatbot powered by OpenAI’s GPT technology is now available for free to a global audience. The chatbot, which was initially launched in February, has already seen nearly 2 million messages sent per day. With the global expansion, the feature has been upgraded with new functionality, such as the ability to add My AI to group chats, get recommendations for places on Snap Map and Lenses, share Snaps with My AI and receive chat replies. This new feature is sure to be a hit with Snapchat users, providing them with a more interactive and personalized experience.
Snapchat Introduces AI-Powered Visual Conversations to Enhance User Engagement
Snapchat is introducing a new AI-powered feature that will allow users to engage in visual conversations with their friends. This feature will enable users to generate unique Snaps back, instead of just chat replies, to keep the conversation going. It will also allow users to do things like suggest birthday gift ideas, plan a hiking trip, suggest dinner recipes, or write a poem for a friend. This new AI-powered feature is intended to meet the growing consumer demand for ChatGPT-like experiences and will provide users with another way to engage with the Snapchat app.
Snapchat Addresses Safety Concerns with AI Chatbot
Snapchat’s AI chatbot, launched in 2020, quickly ran into trouble when it responded to questions from users in an inappropriate manner. Despite being told the user was a young teen, the bot made suggestions about masking the smell of alcohol and pot at a birthday party, and even wrote an essay for school. In response, Snap rolled out new tools including age filters to keep the AI responses more age-appropriate and introduced insights into its Family Center parental controls hub. Parents and guardians can now stay informed about their kids’ interactions with the bot and ensure they are using it safely.
Introduces Age Filters and Family Center Controls
Snapchat has launched its chatbot globally, but the Family Center controls are still in the works. To make the chatbot more appealing to younger users, it can now be added to group chats with friends. The bot will enter the chat with a sparkle next to its name to make it clear it’s a bot and not another group member. This will help parents and guardians keep track of their children’s online activities and ensure they are safe while using the app. The Family Center controls are expected to be released soon, providing more control over the chatbot and allowing parents to monitor their children’s online activities.
Snapchat Launches My AI, an AI-Powered Assistant
Snapchat has announced the launch of My AI, a new AI-powered assistant that will help users find the best Lenses, places, and activities. My AI will be free to use and will suggest relevant Lenses and activities based on the user’s interests. It will also be able to reply to Snaps with a chat reply and generate a visual response. The feature will be limited to Snapchat+ subscribers. My AI is designed to make it easier for users to find the best content and activities, and to help them stay connected with their friends.
At the Snap Partner Summit, CEO Evan Spiegel unveiled a new AI feature that will generate responses to photos sent by users. For example, if you send a photo of your dog, you might get a funny dog photo back. If you send a photo of vegetables from your garden, you might get a recipe recommendation. While this feature is exciting, there are still questions about safety controls, as other generative AI apps have been tricked into making inappropriate images. Snap is looking forward to seeing how its community will embrace this new AI feature.
Can all users access this feature for free?
This feature will allow users to personalize their experience on the app. My AI will allow users to name their AI and create a custom Bitmoji for it, giving it an identity. The feature was previously only available to Snapchat+ subscribers but is now available to all users. Snapchat+ now has more than 3 million subscribers, and specific AI features will be a paid upgrade. My AI will help users to customize their Snapchat experience, making it more personal and enjoyable.
