Replit AI randomly loses old messages

Problem description:
Old messages sent to Replit AI are simply “Explain code” now

Expected behavior:
Their content is preserved

Actual behavior:
Messages are just “Explain code” (Even when that’s clearly not what that message was)

Steps to reproduce:
Unsure, except for using AI in the same Repl on multiple devices, and not clearing the chat.

Bug appears at this link:
All repls with Replit AI

Browser: Chrome
OS: ChromeOS
Device (Android, iOS, NA leave blank): Chromebook
Desktop app version (Avatar menu->“Version”) or NA: N/A
Plan (Free, Replit Core): Core

Here’s a screenshot:

This is most likely because the main purpose of Explain Code is to have users highlight code in their file and then press the Explain code button. When doing this, it works.

However, it’ll break for actual prompts in the AI tab.

(Other actions do not have this problem)

Thing is, I’ve never used that function in this Repl, ever. Those used to be actual questions (As you can see by how the AI responded), but they’re gone now.

(Also weird that that’s a bug, could you make a report for it?)


sometimes AI will assume you’re asking it to explain code. there should be an arrow next to “Explain code” that you can click to change it

It certainly wasn’t explaining code there originally, it just happened after I changed devices.

Using the debug tool and dumping my chat logs, I notice that a majority of the bugged messages are missing an intent (Outright not having one, instead of "intent": "NONE")
