WhatsApp Develops New AI Feature ‘Imagine Me’ to Generate Personalised Images

WhatsApp appears to have begun developing new artificial intelligence (AI) features. Recently, the instant messaging service increased the launch of its Meta AI chatbots in a few areas, including the US and India.

A new ‘Imagine Me’ feature that will allow users to create AI-generated images of themselves is apparently being developed by the messaging app owned by Meta. The most recent beta version of WhatsApp for Android, accessible through the Google Play Beta program, has this change.

The company was identified by feature tracker WABetaInfo working on an optional feature that would let customers use Meta AI to create photos of themselves. When consumers initially choose to activate the functionality, the messaging app might request that they upload a few reference selfies.

Using the Google Play Beta program, the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android upgrade includes allusions to the planned AI-based ‘Imagine Me’ feature, according to WABetaInfo.

After installing the previously mentioned beta version of WhatsApp on an Android phone, the functionality cannot be tested as it is still in development.

Users can ask Meta AI to generate an AI image of themselves by typing “Imagine me” in the Meta AI chat window. This functionality can be accessed in other chats by typing “@Meta AI imagine me”.

As per the screenshot of the feature, users will be able to choose new backgrounds, and locations “from the forest to outer space” to add to their pictures. This is expected to help create customised stickers. Users might be able to delete the uploaded snaps anytime through settings, according to WABetaInfo.

WhatsApp’s new personalised AI image-generating option is said to be optional and users might have to turn it manually on in their settings. It is likely to be available in a future update, according to the feature tracker.

Meta AI, the company’s ChatGPT competitor, started rolling out in India last month. Besides WhatsApp, the chatbot powered by the in-house Llama 3 large language model (LLM) is currently available on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger.
