Revolutionizing Photo Editing: WhatsApp’s New AI-Powered Features

WhatsApp introduces a new feature allowing users to customize photo backgrounds and styles with generative AI

WhatsApp is working on new features using generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) for photo editing. The app is set to include a range of tools that allow users to modify their images in various ways. One of the standout features is the ability to replace your background with another, as well as transform your style based on user descriptions.

In addition to these features, Meta has recently developed new tools based on generative AI, such as the Meta AI chatbot and Expressive Media Universe (EMU), which creates images from text and allows users to create stickers directly from messaging applications to share in conversations.

Meta has also announced two more tools based on generative AI for editing images using EMU technology on Instagram. These tools are Restyle, which applies visual styles to images based on a description, and Backdrop, which modifies the background according to user instructions. The company plans to bring these options to the WhatsApp platform as well, as confirmed by the latest version for Android released through the Google Play beta program.

The photo sending interface on WhatsApp now includes a new button, offering options such as cropping and rotating photos, adding stickers and text, or using the drawing tool. Alongside the icon for sending photo quality in HD, three more options have been incorporated: ‘Backdrop’ (Background), ‘Restyle’ (Change style), and ‘Expand’ (Expand), allowing users to resize images according to their needs. These photo editing features are currently in development for Android, and it is unclear if they will be available on iOS devices.
