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

In recent months, both WhatsApp and Meta have been working on developing new tools based on generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) for photo editing. WhatsApp’s latest feature allows users to modify their background and replace it with another, as well as transform their style based on user descriptions. Meta, on the other hand, has developed the Meta AI chatbot and Expressive Media Universe (EMU), which creates images from text and allows users to create stickers for messaging applications.

Both companies have announced plans to incorporate two additional tools based on generative AI for image editing using EMU technology on Instagram. These tools include Restyle, which applies visual styles based on a description, and Backdrop, which allows users to modify the background based on their instructions. These features are expected to be brought to the WhatsApp platform soon, as indicated in the latest version for Android.

The latest version of WhatsApp for Android includes a new button in the photo sending interface that offers options such as cropping, rotating the photo, 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, giving users more control over their photos. While these features are currently in development for Android only
