Every week, we will be sharing news related to the advertising industry, changes coming to our favourite social media platforms, and other relevant news which might be of interest to you! Here’s this week’s top headlines:
Meta reveals AI that clones voices and generates sounds
Meta has released its free voice cloning program, Audiobox, which generates voices and sound effects using voice inputs and text prompts. Users type a sentence they want a cloned voice to say, or a description of a sound they want to generate, and Audiobox will do the rest. Users can also record their own voice and have it cloned by Audiobox.
Snapchat now lets subscribers share AI-generated snaps
Snapchat is expanding its AI features, now letting Snapchat Plus subscribers create AI images based on text prompts. Users tap the “AI” button from the toolbar to open a window to type their text prompt. Snapchat’s AI will then create the image ready to be edited and sent to friends on the app.
Instagram introduces new features
Instagram’s status feature, Notes, now allows users to post video Notes, rather than just text or emojis. The new feature allows users to post two-second looping videos to mutual followers or Close Friends for 24 hours. Plus, mutual friends can now reply to a Note using audio, photo, video, gifs and stickers. Instagram is also testing adding Notes to Feed posts.
That’s enough social news for now, so let’s move on over to other marketing news.
