Skype Create AI Image

Good news for all Skype users: The app will soon allow you to generate your AI backgrounds. According to the latest blog post, Skype has been updated to version, which includes the new feature.

How will you be able to generate AI backgrounds on Skype? Well, the chat composer will be updated to have an image icon that, when clicked, displays a Create AI Image button to allow you to create an AI image directly on Skype.

You can also select the Image Creator icon at the top of any 1:1 or group chat to personalize the conversation.

The Create AI Image button is handy when you describe something visual and would like to share it with others. It can be especially useful in group chats, where you can create your own memes or sketches for different situations, such as an idea for a gift or something related to a wedding.

As with all other AI-powered capabilities, including Microsoft Designer, the Create AI Image on Skype is also powered by DALLE-3, one of the most advanced visual AI models and the base for any Microsoft-related AI tool.

We’re excited to introduce a creative addition to Skype on desktop with the new “Create AI Image” feature, powered by DALL-E! Now, you can bring your imagination to life right within your chats.


As always, these updates are gradually rolling out to users, so if you haven’t gotten them yet, you should wait a few more days. Until then, you should know that many users currently have problems sending photos through Skype.

If you’re one of them, Microsoft wants your help. What can you do? If you’re currently facing this issue, let Microsoft know by reporting it and leaving your feedback.
