Google also says that it will include more categories in the coming months to enhance user experience. It also says that the AI will help create a “stylized image around your face, seamlessly blending your selfie into the chosen scenario but hair, head coverings, jewellery, and clothing may be replaced in the generated image.”
The image style will also contain “topical facts” which will consist of informative details about the the chosen style. These facts will appear when you are waiting for image generation. Also, note that only the actual users will have access to the newly created images and Google will provide sharing options. This is expected to take care of any privacy concerns that a user may have.
