Discord revises its privacy policy
  • Discord announced five new AI features powered by OpenAI, the makers of ChatGPT, and then made subtle changes to their company's privacy policy.
  • The company revoked promises and revised its privacy policy a day after receiving much backlash from its users concerning the changes made.
  • Discord later emphasized Clyde's privacy-first and optional-only approach before concluding that they would not open Discord users' data to OpenAI.

Recently, Discord announced five new AI features that will be coming to its platform powered by OpenAI and Midjourney, the manufacturers of the most popular AI feature, chatGPT. With this latest development to their platform, Discord promised that they would not use any of the data collected by the AI features for AI tech model training.
