Snapchat Launches 'Dreams', a New Generative-AI Powered Avatar Feature

Snapchat has announced that they are releasing a new feature called Dreams, which is another AI based feature on the platform that lets you take your selfies and feed them into generative AI to get an output in a new stylized, fantasy version. For example, you can take your selfies and convert your self into a French King or, Hunter or, I did that a while ago and it looks fantastic. And these are the type of things that young people would be interested in. And Snapchat has been leading the AI innovative space in the social media industry. Their lens AI feature is already popular. Now they’re releasing this dreams feature and they even plan to monetize it in the days to come. I’m sure this will catch on with younger audience. Something for you to keep in mind if you are in youth ministry.
