Snapchat Embraces AI: Chat Editing, AI-Generated Snaps and More


Snapchat, the popular multimedia messaging app, has recently undergone an exciting transformation with its latest update. The platform now boasts several new features, including chat-editing capabilities and additional generative AI-powered functionalities. Let’s dive into the details:

Chat-Editing Capability in Snapchat

Snapchat now allows users to edit their chats, a feature that has been long-awaited by its community. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Time to Fix Typos: With the new chat-editing capability, users have up to five minutes to correct any typos or errors in their text messages after sending them. No more embarrassing autocorrect mishaps or hastily typed messages!

Generative AI-Powered Features

Snapchat’s commitment to leveraging artificial intelligence continues to grow. Here are some of the exciting AI-powered features introduced in this update:

  1. My AI Reminders:
    • This feature helps users remember important deadlines. By interacting with the “My AI Chatbot,” users can set up in-app countdowns for upcoming events or tasks. Whether it’s a project deadline or a friend’s birthday, the AI chatbot has your back.
  2. Custom Bitmoji Looks:
    • Snapchat now uses AI to create personalized Bitmoji looks. Users can choose from various fabric patterns, including “vibrant graffiti” or “skull flower.” Express your unique style with these customizable options.
  3. 90s AI Lens Filter:
    • Ready to party like it’s 1999? The 90s AI Lens takes your selfie back in time, transforming it into a nostalgic picture reminiscent of the early ’90s. Denim on denim, plaid everything—relive the fashion trends of that era!
  4. Emoji Reactions:
    • Reacting to messages just got more fun. Users can now respond with any emoji, expanding beyond the limited set of reactions and Bitmoji options.
  5. Wave on Snap Map:
    • When a friend shares their location on the Snap Map, you can now send a friendly wave if you’re nearby. It’s a simple way to connect with friends in real-time.

Snapchat+ Subscription

While many of these features are available to all users, some are exclusive to Snapchat+ subscribers. Snapchat+ is a premium subscription service that unlocks additional functionalities. If you’re a Snapchat+ user, enjoy the full suite of features, including chat editing and personalized Bitmoji looks.

Remember, the update is rolling out gradually to both Android and iOS users, so keep an eye out for these exciting changes!

Snapchat continues to push the boundaries of creativity and user engagement, thanks to its innovative use of AI. Whether you’re fixing a typo or rocking a ’90s vibe, the revamped Snapchat experience promises fun and convenience for all.
