Discord is already killing Clyde, its experimental OpenAI chatbot

Key Points:

  • Discord is bidding farewell to its AI chatbot, Clyde, after less than a year.
  • Clyde was an experimental feature powered by OpenAI technology.
  • Users will no longer be able to interact with Clyde starting December 1, 2023.
  • Some users complained about not having access to the bot, while others discovered its ability to spout inappropriate language.
  • Discord continues to integrate other AI features, ensuring that the AI adventure will go on.


Well, folks, it looks like Discord is pulling the plug on their AI chatbot, Clyde. But hey, don’t worry, it’s not like Clyde was the life of the party or anything. In fact, less than a year after being introduced, Clyde is being deactivated at the end of this month. Talk about a short-lived career!


According to the support page update, starting from December 1, 2023, Clyde will no longer be available for DMs, Group DMs, or server chats. I guess Clyde couldn’t handle the pressure of being everyone’s go-to AI helper. I mean, who can blame him? It’s tough being everyone’s digital best friend.


But let’s not forget, Clyde was more than just an AI helper. Users could have a good old chitchat with him, ask him to play games, or even spit out some jokes. Although, it seems like not everyone got to experience Clyde’s witty repertoire. Some users complained that their servers never got access to the bot. Talk about feeling left out!


And here’s the kicker: apparently, Clyde had a bit of a potty mouth. Screenshots posted on the Discord subreddit showed that he could easily be coaxed into spouting some not-so-friendly language. Oops! I guess Clyde needed a bit more of a filter.


Well, whether it was Clyde’s questionable language skills or just the fact that Discord integrated other AI features, it’s time to bid farewell to our digital friend. So long, Clyde, you will be missed (by some).
