In March, Discord introduced an experimental conversational tool called Clyde, which utilized ChatGPT technology. Users could interact with Clyde through direct messages and channels, where he acted as a discovery and recommendations tool, as well as providing entertainment through trivia and jokes. However, it was clearly stated that Clyde did not offer advice.
Unfortunately, the technology company has announced that Clyde will be removed from the platform on December 1. This means that after this date, users will no longer be able to interact with Clyde in direct messages or server chats, as explained on the Support page.
Clyde was designed to be an experimental tool to test out new ways of utilizing chatbot technology in the Discord platform. While it was successful in engaging users and providing them with new content and entertainment options, it ultimately did not meet the company’s expectations for its usage. As a result, Clyde has been taken offline and users will need to find alternative sources of information and entertainment on the platform moving forward.
