Originally it was rolled out only to users with a Snapchat+ subscription which costs $3.99 a month and guarantees users access to "a collection of exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features," according to Snapchat.
As of Wednesday, Snapchat's My AI feature is being rolled out to all Snapchatters globally, regardless of whether they are subscribed or not.
With the My AI feature, users can give the bot a name, customize the bot's Bitmoji, get recommendations, and ask questions as they regularly would with ChatGPT.
So does it work? I had a brief conversation with the chatbot that left me feeling just a little uneasy.
The closest thing to a definition Snapchat has given for its chatbot's purpose was that subscribers have been using My AI to "learn more about movies, sports, pets, and the world around them."
However, when I asked My AI about the news of the day, it said that as my "virtual friend", it could not look up today's news as seen by the photo.
Snapchat users are taking to Twitter to vocalize their complaints, especially with the My AI chat appearing in their feeds.
Users beg Snapchat to remove the chat saying it is an inconvenience. Snapchat, however, only gives that option to paying subscribers.
Other concerns include that, in the initial announcement, Snapchat warned users to beware of "hallucinations" and "deficiencies" that the AI chatbot may output in its responses. As seen with Bing's AI chatbot recently, these AI chatbots can exhibit strange behaviors at times.
Furthermore, Snapchat advised users not to share secrets with the chatbot as the company will be storing all conversations that take place with the chatbot for improvement and review purposes.
