Prisma is out of Beta on Android
Prisma, the turn-your-photos-into-paintings app that’s been blowing up over the past few weeks, is now launching on Android in full form. That means you no longer need a beta invite, and can download it straight off the Google Play Store. The app has only been available in beta form on Android for about 5 days, so this is a surprisingly quick turnaround.
The Android app has all the same features as the iOS version, including over 30 filters and support for either taking a new photo or choosing existing ones from your gallery.
Prisma, which was first available on iOS, has been downloaded 10 million times in just five weeks. It shot to the top of Apple’s charts for photo and video apps in 54 countries, and is the number one app overall in 12 countries’ stores, according to App Annie.
Unlike Instagram and other photo editing tools, which tweak features of an image such as tone, lighting, and colour, the technology behind Prisma reads the elements of a photo and paints them again in a new style.
