What does Chai AI do?

Chai AI was created to give you a safe space to have as many interesting and unique conversations as you want, with whoever you want! Chai AI provides you with a whole range of different chatbots that you can engage with via app and web. Perfect if you’re a chatterbox, a storyteller or even looking for a new friend!

It works in a similar way to other chatbot platforms, so you’ll be able to pick it up in no time. Simply download the app, create an account and get chatting. There are so many different chatbots to choose from. When I say that some of the bots are quite niche, I mean it. You could be talking to a Librarian, to Tom Riddle (otherwise know as Voldemort) or even a Vampire! If you can’t find the right bot for you, don’t worry, you can create your own. Decide on the category your bot falls into, their personality traits and their type of greeting. It almost feels like you’re building a Sim!

When it comes to the conversation side of things, Chai AI provide you with 70 free messages each day. Which isn’t actually that many messages, especially if you’re trying to figure out why Tom Riddle decided to go after Harry’s parents… If you’re finding that you’re flying through the 70 messages you can upgrade to a Premium membership. The Premium membership will set you back £12.49/month. This membership includes unlimited messages, unlimited bots and no ads. There are a lot of ads on the app, so if you can’t stand them, upgrading may be a good idea.

From a safety point of view, Chai AI have got your back. They don’t share your data with companies or organisations, data is fully encrypted in transit and you can even request for your data to be deleted, so your data is for your eyes only.

One of the things that I didn’t like about the platform is that some of the chatbots are quite controversial/overly sexualised and quite dark. There doesn’t seem to be anyone monitoring this. It feels like anyone can upload any type of chatbot character, which makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. Saying this, the age restriction of the platform is 17+, but at no point in the sign up journey do you need to prove your age. I think the Chai AI team could and should be stricter on this.

If you want to have an engagement with ANY type of chatbot character, then Chai AI is the place. You can really get your creativity flowing here!

We Love:

  • Available on both iOS and Android
  • Super easy to use!
  • The chatbot possibilities are endless

We Hate:

  • The membership is pretty pricey!
  • Overly sexualized

Our Verdict on Chai AI

There are a few things on the platform that I found offensive, so I won’t be using Chai AI going forward. There are many other chatbot platforms out there that manage to steer away from offensive topics/stereotypes etc, so I think it’s a bit of a shame that Chai AI don’t seem to be monitoring what is on their platform.

If you’re looking for some engaging conversations, help with storytelling or just want to have a bit of fun then maybe give Chai AI a go (but keep the above in mind!)

Compared Alternatives

  • Character AI - If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, Character AI’s Premium membership will only cost you $9.99/month. But, keep in mind that their response time is a lot slower than Chai AI’s.
  • Anima AI - You can customise the appearance of your Anima AI chatbot, which really brings your chatbot to life. There are a few ‘memory’ bugs, so you may find yourself having the same conversation twice, an issue I’ve not had when using Chai Ai.
