WhatsApp introduce shortcut in chats for AI image generation tool

WhatsApp may soon introduce a new shortcut in chats called “Imagine,” allowing users to generate AI images using Meta AI. While there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, WhatsApp update tracker WABetaInfo has reported the appearance of this chat shortcut for image generation in the WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.24.12.4. The feature is currently undergoing testing and could be rolled out in the near future.

As per WABetaInfo, WhatsApp intends to integrate a shortcut in chats for users to generate images with a single tap. This enhancement would boost Meta AI’s capabilities, offering users a more personalized experience on WhatsApp. Moreover, it will streamline the image generation process within the app, making it quicker and more convenient.

The shortcut option for the AI image generation tool is expected to be located alongside other attachment options within chats. Among these options, an icon labeled “Imagine” with the Meta AI ring logo will be visible, according to WABetaInfo. Upon tapping this icon, users will have the ability to create AI-generated images effortlessly.

Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, is actively developing various AI-powered features for its platforms, including WhatsApp and Instagram. For WhatsApp specifically, Meta is experimenting with features to generate profile pictures and stickers using AI technology.

Meta AI, Meta’s chat assistant introduced in select regions from 2023, is already capable of generating AI-powered images directly or in response to text prompts when tagged with @MetaAI in group chats. This functionality, observed on the Android app version 2.24.11.17, enables users to describe an image in text, which Meta AI then generates accordingly.

The upcoming feature is expected to be accessible to users who already have access to MetaAI. Currently available in select countries, the MetaAI chatbot is undergoing testing for a potential rollout in India as well.
