How To Get Prisma App For Android

Phew, finally!


It's sort of safe to say that the world has been taken over by the game Pokemon GO. But there is another app that is going massively viral just now--the camera filter app Prisma.

The app was first released on iPhone and makers had said that they will release the Android app by the end of this month.

Android users now have something to rejoice about. The app has started taking registrations for the beta versions on their website. Users can register with their email IDs and the app makers would be sending out invites to them soon after.

Alternatively, you can download the APK file on your phone and install it. You can access the APK file here.

The world's most famous photography app Instagram became famous because of its filters. If you loved those filters, the ones from Prisma makes them look tame. Prisma uses artificial intelligence to make mundane objects look like paintings.

Using the app is very simple. You have to click a photo and just select from the filters Prisma offers. You can also increase or decrease the intensity of the filter's effect.


The company says that the filters are based on the styles of famous artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Issac Levitan. There are a host of other filters.


The app has done quite well in the App Store. It was the top photo app in the App Store in the US following its release. Currently, it is the top photo app in over 40 countries. Prisma has generated so much interest that till now it has registered 7.5 million downloads with 1.5 users actively using the app daily.

Even Indian celebrities are taking notice of the app. Alia Bhatt posted a picture of her and Shah Rukh Khan from their new movie taken with Prisma.

The popularity of Prisma clearly indicates that people are more keen on photo and video first apps such as Instagram and Snapchat. Facebook has also been pushing video as one of their primary content sources. While Twitter has taken steps to promote videos through Periscope and Vine, it is still a text first network. That has created problems for the microblogging social network in terms of user growth.
