It is based on Open AI’s GPT technology and works similarly to ChatGPT. Since the My AI chatbot is integrated within Snapchat, you can access it directly from the Chat feed.
While the “My AI” chatbot will try to provide factual information, at times you might come across answers that seem incorrect, biased, or even misleading. In such cases, it is recommended that you report these responses in the form of feedback.
Additionally, the more you interact with the My AI chatbot, the more it learns about you. So with each passing interaction, the chatbot will adapt to your conversation style and needs. Also, all your conversations with the My AI chatbot are stored until you delete them.
What Are the Features of Snapchat’s My AI?
The primary functions of the My AI chatbot are to converse with users and provide accurate responses.
