How to Banish the Annoying AI Chatbot on Snapchat
Snapchat recently introduced a new AI chatbot assistant called “My AI” that sits at the very top of your chat list on the app. While some users find it helpful to have an AI to chat with, many others are frustrated that they can’t remove it without paying for Snapchat’s premium subscription Snapchat+.
If My AI is cluttering up your chat list and pushing your real friends down, here are a few different methods to get rid of the artificial chatbot depending on if you’re a paying Snapchat+ subscriber or not.
Removing My AI if You’re a Snapchat+ Member
For those willing to pay $3.99 per month for Snapchat’s premium features, deleting the My AI chat is simple and only takes a few seconds. Just follow these steps:
- Open up the Snapchat app and head to the Chats section where you see all your conversations.
- Press and hold down on the My AI chat which sits at the very top of your chat list.
- A menu will pop up – select the “Chat Settings” option.
- From the Chat Settings, choose the “Clear from Chat Feed” option.
- The My AI chat will now vanish from the top of your chat list in the blink of an eye.
And that’s all it takes! Since you’re paying for Snapchat+, the app gives you the special privilege of removing annoying features like My AI instantly. Your real human friends will now take their rightful place at the top of your chat list again.
Getting Rid of My AI Without Paying for Snapchat+
Now for those who don’t want to pay Snapchat a monthly subscription fee just to remove an irritating chatbot, there is another way. It takes a few more steps, but ultimately achieves the same result for free.
Here is how to make My AI disappear without being a Snapchat+ member:
- Open up Snapchat like usual, but this time tap on your profile Bitmoji in the top left corner.
- From your profile screen, select the Settings cog icon to access your Snapchat settings.
- Scroll down and select the “Privacy Controls” option.
- Under Privacy Controls, choose the setting called “Clear My AI Data.”
- After confirming you want to erase the AI data, My AI will vanish from your chat list!
While not as seamless as the Snapchat+ method, this process still lets non-paying users remove the annoying AI chatbot and restore their friends to their rightful positions.
Customize Your Snapchat Experience
At the end of the day, Snapchat lets you choose the features and chats you want to see. If My AI is cluttering up your chat list rather than enhancing your experience, don’t hesitate to delete it using one of the above methods. Snapchat’s platform is designed to evolve based on user feedback, so feel empowered to customize it to your liking.
Just because My AI is turned on by default doesn’t mean you have to keep it that way. Take back control of your Snapchat account by banishing the bot and bringing your friends to the forefront again. Your chats are meant for human connections – don’t let an artificial intelligence get in the way!
