How to Get Rid of My AI in Snapchat
Although technology has many benefits, you probably want to keep your real friends at the top of your chat on Snapchat. However, the platform has pinned My AI there instead. Fortunately, there are ways to get your besties back to the top of your chat.
Read on to learn how to remove My AI from the top of your chat on Snapchat.
How to Get Rid of My AI on Snapchat
Snapchat recently added the new “My AI” function. Originally, this was only available to Snapchat+ subscribers, but is now open to everyone. It’s at the top of your chat and answers all your questions using AI.
Unfortunately, Snapchat+ subscribers are the only ones who can remove it from their chat.
If you’re unwilling to pay the monthly subscription fee, you’ll have to stick with My AI for the time being.
If you’re a Snapchat+ member, however, here’s how to remove My AI from the top of your chat:
- Go to “Chat” on Snapchat.
- Tap and hold on to “My AI.”
- Choose “Chat Settings.”
- Choose “Clear from Chat Feed.”
And that’s all you needed to do.
Here’s another way of removing My AI from your chat:
- Open Snapchat and click on your Bitmoji in the top left.
- Go to “Settings.”
- Go to “Privacy controls.”
- Choose “Clear My AI Data.”
Now this chat will no longer appear at the top of your list.
What Happens if I Snap My AI?
As mentioned, unless you’re willing to splurge on the subscription, you’ll have to stick with My AI. Since it’s not going anywhere, what can you actually do with it?
My AI is there to simulate a friend, so you can snap it and send photos to it. It might even respond with some image of its own. Apart from snaps, you can also have a conversation with it. It uses OpenAI’s chatGPT to answer any questions you ask it.
Can My AI Answer a Question in Another Chat?
If My AI can answer o any question you want, can it do the same while in a chat with a friend? The answer is – yes. You can pose a question in a chat with your friends, but you do have to mention My AI, so that it knows that the question is for them.
Here’s how to mention My AI in another chat and pose a question:
- Open the chat where you wish to ask a question.
- Type “@myai” in order to mention My AI.
- Type your question.
Now you can have a group chat with both your AI and your friends.
How to Customize Your Avatar for My AI
If you’ve acquainted yourself with My AI on Snapchat, you might’ve decided that you like the feature, after all. So why not customize its appearance?
Here’s how to make your My AI on Snapchat look like you or however you like:
- Go to “Avatar” to change its appearance.
- Click “Save.”
- Go to “Outfit” to change its clothes.
- Click “Save.”
Now your AI and you can rock the same style.
How to Get My AI Back in Your Chat List
If you accidentally removed My AI from your chat and have no idea how to get it back, fear not. There’s an easy way to get My AI back to your chat list:
- In the search field, enter “My AI.”
- Tap on it to open a chat.
- Send it a message.
And voila, now you can talk to My AI for as long as you like.
Does Snapchat Save My Content Shared with My AI?
Although there are types of content that disappears after a given time frame, anything you share in the chat with My AI will stay there until you decide to delete it.
Follow these steps to delete messages from your chat with My AI:
- Tap on the message and hold.
- Click “Delete.”
Can I Report My AI Messages on Snapchat?
As a Snapchat user, you probably know by now that you can report any content that seems inappropriate for various reasons. Since My AI was made by Snapchat, you may wonder what to do if you find its content offensive?
Here’s what you need to do:
- Tap a message and hold.
- Press “Report.”
- Choose the reason why you’re reporting.
- Tap “Submit.”
Just because something was generated on Snapchat’s side doesn’t mean it shouldn’t follow the terms and conditions just like everyone else.
What for does My AI need my location?
You might be rappelled by the idea of being tracked all the time. But, by doing so, you will allow My AI to give you recommendations when you ask for them in your area. For example, you may ask My AI for the nearest pet shop. Sharing your location will enable it to answer that question for you.
Remember that being in “Ghost Mode” won’t prevent My AI from seeing your location, unlike your friends.
Is My AI available only to Snapchat+ users?
In the beginning, this feature was available only to Snapchat+ members, but that’s no longer the case. However, now they are the only ones who can remove My AI from the top of the chat list.
What’s the role of My AI?
This feature is here to give you information about your area or answer any questions you might have. You can also snap it like any other friend on Snapchat and adjust their appearance. It can also be incorporated in chats with your friends and answer any questions you pose there.
Having a Friend Never Hurt, Even if They’re Artificial
The My AI feature on Snapchat can provide answers to various questions, give recommendations in your local area, or just be there to chat to you when no one else is available. The app also lets you customize your avatar to make it feel even more like a friend. However, if you don’t like this feature, you’ll have to become a Snapchat+ member in order to remove it from the top of your chat.
