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

Revolutionizing Photo Editing: WhatsApp’s New Generative AI Features and the Emergence of EMU Technology

WhatsApp is currently working on new features that incorporate generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) for photo editing. One of the most exciting features is the ability to change your background and replace it with a different one, as well as transform your style based on user descriptions. In recent months, Meta has also developed new tools based on generative AI, including the Meta AI chatbot and Expressive Media Universe (EMU), which creates images from text and allows users to create stickers for messaging applications.

With these services announced, Meta revealed plans to add two more features based on generative AI for image editing using EMU technology to Instagram. The first of these tools is Restyle, which applies visual styles based on a description, and the second is Backdrop, which allows users to modify their backgrounds based on their instructions. These features are expected to be added to the WhatsApp platform soon, as indicated in the latest version of WhatsApp for Android released through the Google Play beta program.

The latest version of WhatsApp for Android includes a new button in the photo sending interface that offers options such as cropping, rotating photos, adding stickers and text, using the drawing tool and more. Along with options for sending photo quality and enlarging images, new features for background modification, style changes and resizing images have been incorporated into this update giving users more control over their photos.

While these features are currently being developed for Android devices only it’s not clear if they will also be available for iOS devices in the future.
