Meta is adding real-time AI image generation to WhatsApp

Meta is rolling out real-time AI image generation in beta for WhatsApp users in the US. As soon as you start typing a text-to-image prompt in a chat with Meta AI, you’ll see how the image changes as you add more detail about what you want to create.

In the example shared by Meta, a user types in the prompt, “Imagine a soccer game on mars.” The generated image quickly changes from a typical soccer player to showing an entire soccer field on a Martian landscape. If you have access to the beta, you can try out the feature for yourself by opening a chat with Meta AI and then start a prompt with the word “Imagine.”

Additionally, Meta says its Meta Llama 3 model can now produce “sharper and higher quality” images and is better at showing text. You can also ask Meta AI to animate any images you provide, allowing you to turn them into a GIF to share with friends.

Along with availability on WhatsApp, real-time image generation is also available to US users through Meta AI for the web. The new feature comes as part of a broader rollout of AI features across all of Meta’s apps, including WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger.
