The popular social media platform Snapchat has introduced a new feature called “My AI.” This AI bot is designed to interact with users, providing a unique and engaging experience. However, some users may find this feature intrusive or unnecessary and wish to remove it. Unfortunately, Snapchat has made it somewhat challenging to disable or remove this feature, but there are ways around it. I will guide you through the process of removing My AI from your Snapchat account.
What Is My AI on Snapchat?
Before we delve into the removal process, it’s important to understand what My AI is and why it’s on your Snapchat. My AI is an artificial intelligence bot that Snapchat has developed to interact with users. It’s designed to provide a more engaging and interactive experience on the platform. However, unlike other friends on your Snapchat, My AI cannot be removed similarly.
Why Can’t I Remove or Turn Off My AI on SnapChat?
Snapchat has made it difficult to remove My AI from your account. When you try to manage the friendship with My AI, as you would with any other friend on Snapchat, you’ll find that the option to remove the friend is not available. Instead, you are only given the option to edit the name. This means that Snapchat is essentially forcing all users to have My AI at the top of their chat list.
How to Manage My AI Notifications
While you may not be able to remove My AI entirely, there are ways to manage its presence on your account. One of these is by managing the notifications you receive from My AI. Here’s how to do it:
- Open Snapchat and swipe to the right to bring up your chats.
- Tap and hold on My AI.
- Tap on “Chat Settings.”
- Under “Message Notifications,” turn off the notifications.
Doing this means you won’t receive any notifications whenever My AI sends you a message. This can help reduce the intrusion of My AI into your Snapchat experience.
How to Remove My AI for Free
While Snapchat Plus, the platform’s paid subscription service, offers an option to remove My AI, not everyone is willing to pay for this service. Fortunately, a workaround allows you to remove My AI for free. Here’s how:
- Open Snapchat and click on your profile.
- Click on the settings icon in the top right-hand corner.
- Scroll down to the bottom and press “I have a suggestion.”
- This will load a new menu. Press “Profile.”
- In the text box, type in “I want to remove My AI from my Snapchat.”
- You can choose any topic for this suggestion. It doesn’t matter which one you choose.
- Press “Submit.”
After submitting your suggestion, it will take about one to two days for Snapchat to process your request. Once they do, My AI should be removed from your individual Snapchat account.
While My AI can be a fun and interactive feature for some, it’s understandable that not everyone wants it on Snapchat. Whether it’s because it’s too intrusive or simply unnecessary, you have the right to choose what features you want to use on your Snapchat. Remember, it’s your Snapchat experience, and you should have control over what features you want to use.
