Snapchat’s My AI Goes Rogue, Posts To Stories, But Snap Confirms It Was A Technical Issue


It suddenly seemed as though Snapchat’s My AI function, an in-app AI chatbot that was introduced earlier this year amid some controversy, had a mind of its own. Some Snapchat users found it unsettling when the AI posted its own Story on the app on Tuesday and subsequently stopped responding to users’ messages.

“My Snapchat AI posted a random 1 second story and isn’t replying to me AND IM FREAKED OUT,” posted one user, @RyanJKrul on X (formerly Twitter).

One user, @RyanJKrul, wrote on X (previously Twitter): “My Snapchat AI posted a random 1 second story and isn’t replying to me AND IM FREAKED OUT.”

“i think I’ve seen this film before…and i didn’t like the ending,” wrote another user @repmiIas on X.

“It went sentient,” joked @Zander0009.

The Drama My AI just posted a two-toned photograph, which some people thought was a picture of their own ceiling, adding to the mystery. The AI sometimes responded to people who attempted to speak with the bot by saying, “Sorry, I encountered a technical issue.”

We hate to inform you that despite some excellent tweets (er, postings) about the situation, My AI did not become conscious of itself or want to express itself through Snapchat Stories. Instead, as the bot had said, the problem was a result of a technical malfunction.

Snap acknowledged that it was only a malfunction and that the problem was promptly fixed last night. (And My AI wasn’t, incidentally, taking pictures of your room.

“My AI experienced a temporary outage that’s now resolved,” a spokesperson told TechCrunch.

The event does, however, prompt the issue of whether Snap was contemplating including a new My AI capability that would permit the AI chatbot to post to Stories. Currently, the AI bot can Snap you back with images, however strange they may be, and deliver text messages. But does it do Stories? Not yet, apparently.

A Snap representative informed us that “My AI does not currently have Stories feature,” leaving us to speculate as to whether Snap has plans to add that feature.

Users first called for its removal and left negative reviews on the App Store for Snap’s My AI, a contentious new addition to the app that was pinned to the top of the Chat stream and couldn’t be turned off or disabled. The Washington Post said that tests showed the AI would react inappropriately to messages from kids, raising safety concerns. Later, parental controls and extra protections were implemented to Snap.

It’s been interesting to see how young users have responded to the in-app AI chatbot over the past few months. Some abused My AI for fun, while others think the addition is a little unsettling, especially once it started expressing itself through Stories as if it had a mind of its own.

As long as you consider these arbitrary, generative AI Snaps to be “normal,” My AI is back to functioning normally for the time being, we believe.

Great article! It’s fascinating to see how technology sometimes has a mind of its own. Snap’s AI going rogue and posting to stories sounds like one of those moments. Although it turned out to be a technical glitch, it highlights the complex nature of AI systems. It’s a reminder that even the most advanced technology can have unexpected hiccups.
