Soon, Andy will be supporting selfies of multiple faces with instantaneous A.I. portrait outputs. Andy is still educating itself with continuous learning paths. In the near future, it not only can mature its own unique creation and style but progressively becoming a master of A.I. painting. Thus, Andy is set to share its benefits of masterpiece to everyone.
As one of the most popular apps for image beautification in China, Meitu targets to work in partnership with famous brands ranging from domestic to overseas enterprises in order to accelerate prompt enrichment of user experiences.
