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

WhatsApp to Offer Photo Editing Tools Based on Generative AI: Expressive Media Universe (EMU) Technology!

Meta is currently developing new tools based on generative AI for photo editing using Expressive Media Universe (EMU) technology. One of the standout features is the ability to modify your background and replace it with another, as well as transform your style based on user descriptions. These tools include Restyle, which applies visual styles to images based on a description, and Backdrop, which modifies the background according to user instructions.

WhatsApp is working on new features that will allow users to edit photos using these same tools. 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 only, but it is unclear if they will be available on iOS devices.
