Android 14 focuses on customization and one of its most interesting features is its AI-generated wallpapers. In addition, improved performance and security.
Android has just launched its version 14 with a feature that promises to steal attention: a wallpaper generator based on artificial intelligence. Additionally, Android 14 promises a number of improved features.
This novelty in Android 14 debuts in the new Pixel 8 and reminds us that personalization and the integration of artificial intelligence in everyday life are pillars of the technological future. But where does it come from? According to information from The Vergethis wallpaper generator is powered by the text-image diffusion model developed by Google.
An example revealed by Google is selecting the “Dreamscape” category and describing something like “A house made of plants in indigo”, resulting in images of structures covered in vegetation with a slightly purple hue.
Although many will not have immediate access to this functionality, the language used by Google suggests that it will eventually be available to a broader audience on other devices. Android 14 is already underway, and it is expected to soon reach devices from brands such as Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus, Sony, and Xiaomi, among others..
