During the Snapdragon Summit 2022, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Adobe announced an expanded collaboration to support creative experiences on Snapdragon powered devices across mobile, compute, and XR platforms. Together, the companies will push the boundaries of creativity and document productivity for Snapdragon users.

Building on the rich experiences already found with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom for Windows on Snapdragon devices, Adobe remains committed to bringing the best of Creative Cloud natively to the Snapdragon platform, including Adobe Fresco and Adobe Acrobat. Bringing the strength of Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, alongside the dedicated on-device Qualcomm® AI Engine on Snapdragon compute platforms, users can experience enhanced device performance for creative workflows and tasks including super-resolution, background removal and color enhancement, editing content on-the-go, and more.

With a shared commitment to creator enablement, the companies are collaborating on XR-driven authoring and consumption workflows powered by Snapdragon Spaces™ XR Developer Platform for VR/MR headsets and AR glasses. Extending Adobe 3D and Immersive tools from smartphones and PCs to XR products via Snapdragon Spaces can help creators author immersive storytelling that are spatially aware in headworn glasses and devices and enable end users to view and interact with Adobe 3D and Immersive content in a deeper way. This work includes performant 3D workflows with Universal Scene Description (USD) on many Android devices for XR experiences powered by Snapdragon Spaces.

These breakthrough experiences of AR application authoring and viewing with Aero are built on the companies’ long-term objective to deliver premium mobile experiences for Android smartphones powered by Snapdragon platforms. Adobe targets expanding availability of the Aero application to premium Snapdragon powered smartphones globally.

“Snapdragon continues to represent premium experiences across multiple product categories, and we design our technology with users at the center to empower them to unleash their creativity from virtually anywhere and across their most personal devices,” said Alex Katouzian, SVP & GM, MCX, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “With Adobe, we’re working to bring the world’s most advanced creative and document tools to Snapdragon powered devices for creators to enable future digital experiences.”

“Adobe is driving creativity and document productivity forward and our products come to life on technology platforms that are built for performance and scale,” said Govind Balakrishnan, SVP, Creative Cloud Products and Services, Adobe. “Designers, creatives and knowledge workers using Snapdragon powered devices can look forward to working with our flagship products including innovative and powerful Adobe Sensei AI technologies as they define a new era of digital experiences across surfaces and new creative mediums.”
