Is It Any Good?

Like any chatbot, this one is a bit of a one-trick pony: It's amusing to engage in conversation, but only to a point. Pewdiebot is most likely to appeal to teens and tweens -- a good choice, since that's this celebrity's core audience. The main thing lacking here is the YouTuber's warmth and personality. All that's on display here are some catchphrases and a lot of fairly generic nonsense interactions, and there's limited appeal after the initial novelty wears off. Also, conversations can be excruciatingly slow with huge gaps between responses. In the end, it's best to look elsewhere for a good way to interact with your favorite YouTuber.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
