The apps latest AI companion has engaged users in witty exchanges and teasing, the playful banter ranges from clever comebacks to hilarious retorts.

Recently launched Snapchat’s new feature My AI, the viral sensation, has become the talk of the virtual town.

“Sure, what role-play do you want?” replied the AI which left the user in awe. From some Snapchat users sharing flirtatious wings with their AIs to some of them going on a virtual date, the #MyAIfun has created a murmur in the community.

Another user Sahil while sharing a snap of his dog cleverly persuaded the AI that it looked like a potato. The clever interaction showcased the AI’s susceptibility to being fooled by misleading information resulting in humorous outcomes.

In the hilarious turn of events, Kritika shared her grocery snapshots, seeking a recipe recommendation. A user playfully decided to rename My AI to “My Ex” and engage in comical banter, utilising witty slang to defuse her past frustration.

It was only a matter of time when users attempted to share explicit snaps, including semi-nudes and crossing community guidelines where it is still uncertain how the chatbot will respond to unsolicited nudity.
