The Prisma app is now available on Android

For all of you who have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Prisma app on Android, the wait is over. The app is now available for download from the Google Play Store.

Prisma first made its debut on iOS about a month ago as an application that would apply filters to your images to make them look like paintings by famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh. Unlike your typical filter app however, Prisma relies on artificial intelligence and “deep learning algorithms” to scan your image and properly apply the filters, turning “every photo into art”. Photos are processed by the app’s remote servers, as opposed to your phone, in order to bring the full force of cloud-based AI to your images.

“We’re not just overlaying like an Instagram filter. We create the photo from scratch. So there is no photo, we took your photo, then perform some operations and give a new photo to you. So deep learning is like an artist, something like that.” – Alexey Moiseenkov, the CEO and co-founder of Prisma Labs Inc. told TechCrunch in an interview.

For this reason, the Prisma app is pretty slow at processing images during peak times, especially now where the app is being opened and used by millions of new users. Despite this, the wait is probably more than worth it as the images produced by the app are nothing short of stunning. This is definitely an app Android photographers should take a look at.

      Even when you pass this message, the rendering phase is soooo long i’m stuck to the “Creating Artwork…” screen since 15min and 10% battery. I’ll stop and try again later before my battery melt in a radioactive goo.

      Note this battery consumption is strange since all the work should be done by the Prisma server (aka “in the cloud”), not the phone itself…

        Yes. It took hardly 6~7 seconds in Beta. Also I noticed the progress pyramid sometimes goes back down! ?

    This is probably the most irrelevant post that has ever made it onto this website, how much are you getting paid to post this garbage app on here? You realize people come here to see news on phones, not petty apps right Airyl?
