Snapchat is said to be expanding its roster of artificial-intelligence powered features with a new offering that would let users prompt an AI to create a fantastical background they can place photos of themselves on.
According to a TechCrunch report on Tuesday, August 22, the new generative AI feature is called Dreams, and app researcher and developer Steve Moser said the feature may eventually let shutterbugs apply the effects to selfies they’ve allowed Snapchat to use, and enhance using AI.
Moser’s research points to Dreams allowing users to take the AI-generated selfies it has of a user and place those pictures in “fantastical places and scenarios.” Additional potential features include Dreams with Friends – where users give their friends permission to apparently generate images using their combined photos – and Dream Packs, which appear to be a monetization aspect for the Dreams feature.
TechCrunch added the Dreams feature was first spotted around late May by reverse engineer Alesandro Paluzzi.
