A new WhatsApp beta version for Android reportedly allows users to send their photo to Meta AI and analyse or edit the image using prompts, according to a report by The Verge. 

But it is unclear how this editing feature will be helpful considering AI-powered image editing tools can now isolate and remove an object from their surroundings, replace it with another and tweak the look of the object. 

Meta has integrated more image-generation features into the messaging app besides generating images with simple text prompts, including a beta version for creating personalised AI avatars based on user photos. 

The Mark Zuckerberg-led company has been rolling out AI features via its Llama 3 AI model into its other platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.
