Facebook Live is about to get a lot more artistic.
Prisma, the popular app that turns ordinary images into art, will reportedly debut tools enabling the AI-powered photo filters to work with Facebook Live.
According to a report from the Verge, Prisma will be updated to enable Facebook Live users to choose from eight Prisma filters that can be applied to their live streams.
So far, the functionality is available only to iPhone 6S and 7 users because adding filters to live video takes a lot of processing power — power that only newer handsets have, the report indicated.
The company today alluded to the upcoming change on its Facebook page.
Prisma is a free art app out of Russia. Launched in June, the iOS and Android app has enjoyed immense success with millions of people using its large number of filters to turn their ordinary photographs into painting-like images.
Prisma has yet to offer up any details of how it will work with Facebook Live, but it is unlikely to be difficult. To use Prisma on a Smartphone, simply snap a picture, or choose an existing image on your phone and then apply a filter, it’s as easy as that. You can customize the filter by sliding your finger to the left or right on the image to magnify or soften the effect.
The app also enables you to adjust your photo with cropping tools, making it easier to post your creations on social networks like Facebook and Instagram.
