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.
