WhatsApp is releasing live image generation as part of its artificial intelligence (AI) assistant feature.

Along with the debut of their new AI model, Llama 3; Meta announced this on Thursday evening.

The Meta AI assistant was released on WhatsApp late last week, attracting some controversy on social media.

Users interact with Meta AI as they would with any other chat on WhatsApp, according to MyBroadBand.

Users can chat as if they were chatting to a person when in conversation with the assistant.

Then, they can enter prompts such as "Imagine", which will make the assistant generate images.

Meta utilises the example of "Imagine a soccer game on Mars."

The image will change with every few letters typed as users type the description of their "Imagine prompt, so you can watch as Meta AI brings your vision to life."

Meta confirms that its AI image generation is now “sharper and higher quality” and is better at understanding text.

Moreover, users can also ask the Meta AI assistant to animate the image, turning it into a GIF.

The Meta AI image generator is also present as a web app, however, it is currently being released in the US.
