Canva has launched a series of new features, including a suite of AI-powered tools, and a new Brand Hub at its Canva Create virtual event.
Canva launched Assistant, a tool that lets users search for design elements and provides quick access to features.
Assistant also gives design recommendations on graphics and styles that match your existing design and provides quick access to AI-powered design tools like Magic Write, which is Canva’s AI-powered copywriting assistant that launched in December.
Canva has launched a new way to automatically generate presentations.
Canva also is launching “Beat Sync,” which automatically matches video footage to a soundtrack of your choice, along with a new “Translate” feature that automatically translates text in designs to over 100 different languages.
Also, Canva is introducing a set of new features that it says users have requested. First, the company is launching “Draw,” which lets you sketch a simple shape, like a circle, and then have it transform into a polished circle.
A new “Layouts” feature allows users to add content to a page and get recommendations for layout ideas for a design,” whereas “Styles” gives users the ability to browse suggested color palettes and fonts. A new “Layers” tool can be used to see all elements in one place, including text, shapes, images, and video.
Further, Canva now supports Alt Text, which means you can provide extra context to your images and elements to describe them for those with visual impairment or accessibility needs.
Another new update is the addition of 953 new fonts, including Arial, Courier, Helvetica, and Times New Roman.
Canva is also launching Brand Hub, a range of new tools and features designed to help teams stay on brand. The hub includes a new “Magic Replace” tool that allows users to quickly update brand assets, such as logos, across your designs on the platform.
