CharacterAI group Chat features

Participants: In the chats, we can add two types of characters, right?

  1. Humans: Here, you can see how many humans have been added to the group chat; the admin icon will be highlighted by a king crown. 

You can check each of the humans’ profiles individually by clicking the three dots beside the character.

  1. AI Characters: You can check all of the AI character’s names personally by clicking on their name from here. 

You can also add and remove AI characters after creation by clicking the button just below the character’s names.

Reset Conversation: If you are not satisfied with the responses of the AI characters, you can reset them by clicking the ‘Reset AI Conversation’ button.

Delete Group Chat: If you feel that the group has been created accidentally, you can also delete the group without any hassle. 

Deleting CharacterAI group chat

Just click the ‘Delete group’ button, and a confirmation notice comes up. Select ‘Yes,’ and that’s it.

Enable Notifications: It is like a group notification in a WhatsApp group. 

If you only add humans, then enable it by clicking on the button; otherwise, it has no meaning.

Report and Feedback: By clicking the arrow-scrolling circle on the right of each response, you can refresh the response.
