How Snapchat’s Chatbot Works
Snapchat’s AI-powered chatbot, called ‘My AI,’ allows you to have natural conversations with artificial intelligence within Snapchat. Here’s how the ‘My AI’ chatbot works:
The ‘My AI’ chatbot is driven by robust technology networks trained on billions of chats. This allows the chatbot to understand what you want to communicate and respond appropriately. By gathering knowledge from each discussion, the chatbot gradually becomes wiser.
Open a new chat on Snapchat and choose the “My AI” contact to begin a conversation with the chatbot. The chatbot can then receive messages precisely like a friend would. In response to what you say, the chatbot will reply. You can engage in open-ended conversation, obtain ideas for things to do, or discuss various topics.
The ‘My AI’ chatbot provides helpful information in a conversational way. For instance; a Snapchat chatbot can help you find the best movies and restaurants. You can also ask the chatbot about famous music, which will answer according to your interest and location. Moreover, it is pretty helpful in providing you with answers about different subjects.
Activating and Using the My AI Chatbot
To activate the My AI chatbot on Snapchat, follow these steps:
- Open the Snapchat app on your mobile device and tap the Chat icon to open Chats.
- Tap the Settings icon in the top right corner of the Chats screen.
- Select ‘My AI’ from the menu.
- Toggle the ‘My AI’ option to on. A popup will appear explaining how the chatbot works. Tap ‘Got it’ to continue.
Using the My AI Chatbot
Once you activate, the My AI chatbot will appear in your Chat list with the name ‘My AI’. To start a conversation, simply tap on the chat. The chatbot will welcome you and inquire about how it can help. Some examples of questions and requests you can make include:
- Tell me a joke or fun fact
- Give me a random conversation starter
- How is the weather today?
- Set a reminder for me at 5 p.m.
- How do I get more followers on Snapchat?
The My AI chatbot can provide helpful information, recommendations, and reminders. It can also carry on basic conversations to provide entertainment. The more you interact with the chatbot, the more it learns from your conversations and gets smarter.
What Can You Ask My AI?
My AI will search its knowledge base to find the answers to your questions and respond promptly.
In addition to general knowledge, My AI can also answer some basic personal questions about you based on the information you provide in your Snapchat profile and settings. For example, My AI knows:
- Your name
- Your age
- Where you live
- Your interests and hobbies
So you can ask My AI questions such as:
- How old am I?
- Where do I live?
- What are my hobbies?
My AI will access your profile details to answer these types of personal questions. However, My AI does not have access to private or sensitive information beyond what you choose to share in your public Snapchat profile.
Follow Up Questions
One of the best features of My AI is that it can understand follow-up questions and continue a conversation. After My AI answers your initial question, you can ask related follow-up questions to get more details or clarification. For example:
You: What is the capital of Australia?
My AI: The capital of Australia is Canberra.
You: What is the population of Canberra?
My AI: The population of Canberra, Australia is approximately 395,000 people.
My AI will do its best to continue answering your follow-up questions to have a naturally flowing conversation. However, there may be some questions that My AI does not have enough knowledge or capability to answer effectively. In these cases, My AI will let you know that it has reached the current limit of its abilities.
