Instagram is set to provide AI-generated backgrounds from now on.

Instagram has introduced a new AI-driven tool empowering users to craft fresh backgrounds for their Stories. Ahmad Al-Dahle, Meta’s generative AI lead, revealed this feature on Threads via a video tutorial.

Once a photo is captured or uploaded from the Photo Library, the backdrop tool will appear among other icons at the top of the screen. Clicking the icon will render the image’s background as checkered, accompanied by a text box inviting users to “describe the backdrop you want…”

Stories crafted with the AI-generated backdrop will be tagged by Instagram, along with a sticker encouraging viewers to try the feature and displaying the prompt used to create that specific background.

Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
