Snapchat+ users can now send AI-generated images

Snapchat announced Tuesday that Snapchat+ subscribers will get some AI-powered features. Most importantly, subscribers can send text-prompted, AI-generated images. In addition to a new AI extend tool, subscribers can now share Dream selfies with friends.

Subscribers can use the AI image generator by clicking “AI” on the right. After clicking it, you can choose from prompts like “a planet made out of cheese” or “a sunny day at the beach” to receive an AI-generated image. Enter your own prompt, like “a dog sleeping on a rocket.” Once you select or type a prompt, the app will generate your image. You can edit, download, and share it when ready.

Snapchat+ users can now create and send AI images to friends, in addition to bitmoji backgrounds and chat wallpapers.

Snapchat told in an email that it has several deals with partners to use their foundational models to power the feature.

Snapchat subscribers can now share Dream, its generative AI selfie feature, with friends. Visualize yourself in fantastical scenarios with the feature. This update lets you take an AI selfie and choose a friend to join you. You can send a friend or post a photo of you as a mermaid in your story. The company says Snapchat+ subscribers get one free 8 Dreams pack per month.

Subscribers also get an AI-powered extension tool. You zoomed in too much on a dog photo and want a fuller view. The new extend tool offers a zoomed-out image with AI-filled backgrounds.

Snapchat says these new features are rolling out now, but regional availability may vary.

Snapchat’s announcement today shows that it wants to expand its AI capabilities. Snapchat’s My AI chatbot and AI Dream feature have provided AI-generated images to users for months.

Snapchat+, launched this summer, costs $3.99/month. Snapchat+ claims over 7 million subscribers. According to new data, the offering had its best month of in-app revenue and is growing. Snapchat+ first reached $20 million in net revenue (after app store fees) in November. In most Snapchat+ countries, subscription revenue increased by double digits.
