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

WhatsApp is currently working on new photo editing features that utilize generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. One of the standout features is the ability to modify and replace the background of an image with another, as well as change your style based on user descriptions. Meta, in recent months, has also introduced 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 make stickers for messaging apps.

These new services have paved the way for two additional photo editing tools based on generative AI for Instagram using EMU technology. The first tool, Restyle, applies visual styles based on a description, while Backdrop allows users to modify their backgrounds according to their instructions. These features are expected to be introduced to the WhatsApp platform soon, as evidenced by the latest version of WhatsApp for Android released through the Google Play beta program.

In addition to these new features, WhatsApp has added a button in its photo sending interface that offers options such as cropping, rotating photos, adding stickers and text, using drawing tools and more. Along with options for sending photo quality and enlarging images, users now have greater control over their photos with new features for background modification, style changes and resizing images. However it remains uncertain if these features will also be available for iOS devices in the future.
