WhatsApp, the popular messaging platform, is currently testing a new feature for some of its beta users. The feature in question is an AI-generated sticker, which allows users to create personalized stickers based on a brief description.
Currently available in the latest WhatsApp beta v188.8.131.52 for Android, the feature aims to enhance the user experience by offering a unique and customizable sticker collection. In order to access the feature, beta users will notice a new panel in the stickers section, informing them about the latest update.
To create an AI sticker, users simply need to press the ‘Create’ button and provide a prompt or description. WhatsApp’s generative AI model will then try to generate stickers that closely match the user’s description. Once generated, these personalized stickers are instantly sent to the ongoing conversation, allowing users to express themselves in a more creative and fun way.
While the generative AI model used for this feature remains unknown, WhatsApp assures its users that all stickers are generated on Meta servers and are completely secure. They have also mentioned that recipients of these AI stickers will easily be able to differentiate them from regular stickers. However, it is still unclear if there will be a visual mark or notice indicating whether a sticker was AI-generated or not.
Currently, the feature is limited to a select group of beta users, but it is expected to roll out to more users soon. WhatsApp is known for continuously improving its platform by introducing innovative features, and this AI-generated sticker feature is just another step towards enhancing user engagement and satisfaction.
As technology continues to evolve, AI-powered features like this are becoming increasingly common across various platforms. With WhatsApp’s new AI-generated sticker feature, users can now enjoy a unique and personalized messaging experience, connecting with their friends and family in a more expressive and entertaining manner.
