A couple of weeks on from its iOS launch, photo editing app Prisma is now available on Android through Google Play. For the uninitiated, Prisma uses hefty cloud computing power to add artistic effects to your photos. The power of cloud-based artwork comes to Android.
But the app is a far cry from standard photo filtering offerings like Instagram, with the app’s various filters being able to intelligently identify various objects in your photos, and render accordingly. That’s because 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.
For that reason, Prisma can become slow during peak times — like right now, when the app has just been opened up to hundreds of millions of new users. Nevertheless, Prisma is a unique app that’s capable of producing some truly remarkable images, and it’s definitely worth a look if you’re a keen Android photographer.
