Snapchat‘s introduction of My AI to its users has left many feeling frustrated with its placement at the top of their Chat feeds. My AI runs on OpenAI’s GPT technology and appears in users’ Chat feeds with a customizable Bitmoji avatar. It responds to messages and offers recommendations for Lenses to use or places to visit, making it seem like a friend. However, some Snapchatters prefer to have their actual friends at the top of their Chat feeds instead of My AI.
Initially, My AI was exclusive to Snapchat+ subscribers, but it has now been rolled out globally, and users are required to subscribe (for a $3.99 per month fee) to get rid of it. If you aren’t a Snapchat+ subscriber, you won’t be able to remove My AI from your Chat feed.
Fortunately, if you are a Snapchat+ subscriber, there are two ways to unpin My AI from your Chat feed.
The first way is to open Snapchat and navigate to the Chat screen by swiping left from the Camera screen. Hold down on the My AI icon, select “Chat Settings,” and then tap “Clear from Chat Feed.”
Alternatively, you can open Snapchat, tap your Bitmoji in the upper left-hand corner, select the settings icon in the upper right-hand corner, and scroll down to “Privacy Controls.” Select “Clear Data,” tap “Clear Conversations,” and then choose the “X” next to “My AI” to remove it from your Chat feed.
It’s worth noting that while My AI may seem like a useful feature, some users have expressed concern about the potential privacy implications of using AI technology to analyze their conversations. If you have concerns about your privacy, it may be worth considering whether you want to continue using My AI or not.
Removing My AI from your Chat feed on Snapchat is a simple process if you are a Snapchat+ subscriber. Whether you choose to keep using the feature or not is up to you, but it’s important to be aware of the potential privacy implications of using AI technology in this way. Ultimately, the decision of whether to keep or remove My AI comes down to personal preference and individual privacy concerns.
