On the internet, ‘aight’ is the shortened version of the phrase ‘All Right.’ The common AAVE (African American Vernacular English) slang is often used to show agreement, acknowledgment, or even to signify that something is understood.

You may also see the slang term ‘ight’ which has the same meaning and can be used interchangeably. Essentially, the word serves as an affirmative response.

For example, if a friend sends a message saying, “Meet me at the park at 5,” you could simply respond with “Aight,” implying that you agree with the plan and will be there.

It’s frequently used on Snapchat, and you will often see it in direct messages, but the informal word is not exclusive to Snapchat, so you may also see people use it on other platforms like Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and more.
