Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps worldwide primarily because of its privacy-focused features, such as disappearing messages and screenshot notifications. However, with the recent wave of AI developments, Snapchat now has its own AI assistant. 

While you can chat with it all you want, Snapchat has also provided customisation options for its AI assistant. This AI assistant, named “My AI” by default, was first exclusive to Snapchat Plus members but has since expanded to the free version and is now available to anyone with a Snapchat account. 

In this article, we’re talking about how to change the Snapchat AI’s gender.

Changing Snapchat AI’s gender

Before we get started, keep in mind that you can’t really change the AI’s gender simply because it’s an AI. It has no concept of gender and will respond to however you’re talking. That said, you can change its avatar to resemble either gender. 

Follow these steps to change your AI’s avatar. 

  • Open Snapchat and tap the chat icon in the bottom left. 
  • Tap your AI’s avatar. 
  • Tap the Customise button on the avatar banner.
  • Tap Avatar.
  • You’ll be asked to choose between two genders. There are only slight differences between the two, but some customisation traits are exclusive to either of the options. 
  • You can now customise your AI’s avatar and appearance. 

Further, you can also customise the AI’s outfit and even give it a nickname for a more personal feel. However, that’s about all the customisation Snapchat allows. Outside of that, you can chat with the AI just as you would with your friends.
