Group Messaging System Offers Creative Image Sharing & Social Editing
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PicsArt
announced today the launch of Remix Chat— a messaging system where users
can share images directly or in groups and edit them collectively for
streams of funny, personal and/or momentous edits with friends, on iOS
and Android. PicsArt, a leading image editing app and creative
community, now has more than 85 million monthly active users, and sees
upwards of 2.5 million uploads to the platform per day.
Today’s release is the second Remix feature from PicsArt. The company introduced
Remix in May 2016, which gives users the ability to discover and remix
(i.e. edit) images from trendsetters and creatives from around the world.
Starting today with Remix Chat, users can remix directly in conversation
with one friend or a group (of up to 50 people) by sharing images and
choosing from PicsArt’s wealth of tools and effects to edit them
together. Tools include more than 10,000 stickers, customizable filters,
photo overlay, text, clone/stamp, masks, double exposure, drawing tools,
lens flares, a collage maker and AI-powered Magic
Effects, which convert photos into virtual works of art. Don’t have
an image, but still want to Remix with your friends? Not to worry.
PicsArt has more than 6 million available Free To Edit images, which are
free-to-use images on the network to choose and remix from.
“We’re excited about Remix Chat because we think it’s the next step
towards our mission to build the most complete creative social platform
on mobile,” said Hovhannes Avoyan, PicsArt co-founder and CEO. “People
have been creating and sharing amazing photo edits, memes and mixed
media collages with PicsArt for a while. Now, they can do it together,
in a conversation — with Remix Chat. We’re looking forward to seeing our
community riff off each other in a new creative way.”
Use Remix Chat to:
Personalize group photos, party pics and vacation snaps with artistic
effects, filters, frames, text and doodles — or photobomb yourself
into the events you missed
- Start a “caption this” contest, meme-off, or photo-editing battle
Make virtual candy grams, artistic couples photos and romantic cards
for your crush/significant other
Troll your friends by adding funny stickers (like Trump
hair) or virtual
makeup to their selfies
The social editing possibilities are endless with Remix Chat.
