AI Weekly Highlights: Gen-3, 11 Labs, and Sunno Updates

AI News Highlights: Post-4th of July Week

While the 4th of July is synonymous with fireworks and barbecues, it also often results in a quieter week for major tech announcements. However, the AI world still had its share of intriguing updates. Let’s delve into some of the noteworthy developments that occurred this week.

Gen-3 Access Goes Public

A significant highlight this week is the public availability of Gen-3 on Runway. Although it’s exclusive to pro users, this development is a game-changer for those in video generation. If you’re a pro user, you can now generate videos by simply entering your prompt. For instance, a prompt like “a bald eagle flying in front of an American flag with fireworks in the background” might not always yield perfect results, but it showcases the potential of Gen-3 as the best text-to-video generator currently available.

Key Points:

  • Availability: Only for pro users of Runway.
  • Functionality: Text-to-video generation.
  • Comparison: Gen-3 leads in text-to-video, whereas Luma AI excels in image-to-video generation.

11 Labs Updates

11 Labs continues to innovate with their reader app, now featuring iconic voices such as Judy Garland, James Dean, Burt Reynolds, and Sir Laurence Olivier. Importantly, these additions are fully licensed, with estates receiving compensation, ensuring ethical usage.


  • New Voices: Judy Garland, James Dean, Burt Reynolds, and Sir Laurence Olivier.
  • Ethical Licensing: Permissions and deals with estates.
  • Usability: Available on the official 11 Labs app.

In addition to these voices, 11 Labs introduced a voice isolator feature. This tool promises to clean up background noise from any audio, delivering crystal-clear sound, which is particularly beneficial for content creators.

Feature Focus:

  • Voice Isolator: Removes background noise for clearer audio.
  • Demo: The online demo showcases its impressive effectiveness.

Sunno’s New App Release

For music enthusiasts, Sunno released a new app this week, replicating the functionalities of its web version on iOS. This makes creating music on-the-go more accessible, though Android users will need to wait a bit longer.

App Details:

  • Platform: Currently available on iOS.
  • Functionality: Similar to the web app.
  • Caution: Ensure you download the official Sunno app by Sunno Inc.

Once you’ve confirmed the correct app, you’ll find a streamlined interface with your music library, creation tools, and new song displays. This user-friendly design makes music creation both intuitive and portable.

Practical Takeaways

Despite the holiday-induced lull, these updates in AI technology underline the continuous innovation in the field. From Runway’s advanced video generation capabilities to 11 Labs’ ethical approach to voice replication and Sunno’s user-friendly music app, these developments exemplify the practical impacts AI can have on content creation and usability.

Stay tuned for more updates as the AI world never truly sleeps, even during holiday weeks.
