Today at Connect, Meta announced several AI editing tools and features that will be integrated into their apps and services. This exciting news also includes the long-awaited release date for the Meta Quest 3. Let’s dive into the details.
One of the standout AI experiences unveiled by Meta is the ability to send AI stickers. These unique stickers are generated by AI based on the user’s searches. Meta utilizes technology from Llama 2 and their image generation model called Emu to create these customized stickers. You simply need to search for a specific sticker, like a hedgehog or blue heart, and the AI tool will swiftly generate a high-quality sticker for you to use in your conversations.
According to Meta, this new feature will initially roll out to select English-language users over the next month on popular platforms such as WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, and Facebook Stories. Get ready to enhance your conversations with these AI stickers!
In addition to AI stickers, Meta has also introduced AI editing tools powered by their Emu technology. Two exciting features, restyle and backdrop, are making their way to Instagram. Restyle allows users to reimagine their images by applying various visual styles, such as watercooler or collage. On the other hand, backdrop lets you change the scene or background of your images. These tools empower you to transform your photos and co-create AI-generated images with your friends.
To use these AI editing tools, simply provide a command like “put me in front of an aurora borealis” or “surrounded by puppies,” and the tool will generate an image with your desired foreground and background elements.
It’s worth noting that all images created using restyle and backdrop will be clearly labeled as being AI-generated to distinguish them from human-created content.
Stay tuned for the release of these fantastic AI editing tools and AI stickers, as Meta continues to revolutionize the way we interact with technology.
