SNAPCHAT users are ecstatic after the app’s My AI chatbot posted a mysterious story last night.
Some were so petrified they said they couldn’t sleep.
The service is an artificial intelligence virtual chatbot that will answer any of your burning questions or have a general conversation with you.
However, users noticed that My AI posted a random image that looked like a wall.
It also stopped responding to messages.
“As TF Snapchat ai posted earlier in his story I’m still confused this is so freaking creepy man I think I won’t be able to sleep tonight,” said one user.
“I won’t be able to sleep tonight until @Snapchat explains what the heck just happened,” commented another.
“There is absolutely no reason for AI to post a story.”
A third added: “Why did everyone on Snapchat post a photo on their story? That’s actually pretty scary.”
When trying to talk to My AI, the chatbot simply replied, “I’m sorry, I encountered a technical problem.”
In response to users on X – formerly known as Twitter – Snapchat said that “My AI” “had a temporary outage that is now resolved.”
Some users directly confronted My AI with the strange photo.
The chatbot replied, “I apologize if my white image caused concern.”
“It should be a harmless and light-hearted way to have fun on Snpachat.
“If this made you or anyone else uncomfortable, I’m really sorry.”
