Mobile website builder Universe launches AI-powered designer

Universe’s new tool is similar to one launched by Wix earlier this month, which is called the AI Site Generator. The tool allows users to describe their intent and generate a website complete with a homepage, inner pages and text and images — as well as business-specific sections for events, bookings and more. One of the main ideas behind both companies’ products is to help small and medium-sized businesses launch and maintain websites to drive sales, which can be a challenging process. For context, a 2022 survey by Top Design Firms, a directory for finding creative agencies, found that nearly 27% of small businesses still don’t have a website and that low traffic, followed by adding “advanced” functionalities and cost, are the top challenges they face with their website.

Adobe is partnering with Wix. The plan is to integrate the ultra-modular Express Embed SDK into the popular website builder to boost creativity and simplify workflows.

According to Yaniv Vakrat, Chief Business Officer at Wix, the firm will “explore ways in which we can enable our users to use Adobe Express capabilities to enhance the image editing process in our Wix Media Manager.”
