A few days back, Facebook was reported to be imitating Prisma’s artistic approach to boost its Live Videos. However, the latest buzz is that Prisma has apparently announced to support real-time ‘style transfer’ for live streaming videos broadcast to the Facebook Live platform.

Prisma app, which has been downloaded more than 70 million times, uses artificial neural networks to create photos and videos that impersonate famous artists works – Picasso, anime, punk – or other styles like Tokyo or Gothic.

With the latest update, users can broadcast via Facebook using any of the eight AI-powered Prisma filters to their live streams. But, don’t get too excited. This interesting feature is available only on iPhone 6S and 7. To which, Prisma’s says “this is because applying the filters to live video takes considerable processing power and only newer hardware can handle it.”

The company adds that it’ll soon bring Android users on the platform too to increase its user base.

CEO Alexey Moiseenkov said, “We are working in a direction that we always considered important. We want to change the way people communicate with each other using the most advanced and new technology. We believe that even a small company can achieve great results.”

Anyways, users just need to be logged into their Facebook account via the Prisma app to make use of the live streaming feature. Prisma added the new feature using the Facebook Live API which was released in April to enable third-party developers to incorporate the video technology directly into their own apps.

Apart from that, the company also aims to bring Prisma the ability to choose any aspect ratio and support for GIFs.
