Prisma is coming to Android, but there's a way to get it sooner

Prisma, the mobile app that can turn your mundane photos into beautiful pieces of art, is poised to launch an Android version, and an invite-only beta is already available. 

Originally launched only on iOS, the app quickly became a hit in Apple's App Store, its large selection of artistic photo filters working what appears like magic on pretty much anything your phone's camera snaps. 

Now Prisma has launched a closed beta version of its highly anticipated Android app. That means you can't download it just yet, but you can go to the app's website and sign up to get an invitation to try out the beta (have in mind, though, that you're essentially signing up for Prisma's newsletter).

The beta version appears to be fully functional and quite similar to the iOS variant, as documented in a couple of screenshots obtained by The Next Web.

The app's developer, Prisma Labs, claims its filters work in a very different way than, say, Instagram filters, using neural networks and AI to scan the image's data and then re-style it to create an artwork-like effect. The company recently shared with Mashable its plans for the future, and it includes both a video and a virtual-reality version of the app
