Technology has its way of creeping into my life without permission. Whenever I come across a fun new app, I get this thrill that I can’t explain. That is exactly how I feel about Faceapp.
Faceapp is an artificial intelligence app that allows you to do some crazy things to your face!
What is Faceapp?
All over my Twitter feed, I kept seeing trending topics that talked about Faceapp. Me being curious, I had to try it out.
First thing’s first, Faceapp is a free mobile app available in the Google Play and Apple App Store. It uses neural face transformation to makes alterations to your face. These alterations can be hilarious, creepy, weird but very realistic.
Faceapp has been reviewed over 200,000 times and is rocking with a 4.7 rating.
Even though Faceapp was introduced to the world in 2017, the technology continues to be updated giving users an even more realistic experience.
The app can use a snapped picture or use photos from your library. If you’ve ever heard of Prisma then you understand just how Faceapp works. It uses server-side technologies to process your images into amazingly crazy filters.
Every photo that is ever morphed through Faceapp is uploaded to Faceapp’s server, which has driven security concerns. Luckily for me, I have yet to experience any security breaches on my end.
How Does Faceapp Work?
When you first download Faceapp you will have to give permission for it to access your photos. It will also have access to refreshing in the background so even while you aren’t utilizing the app, it will be running in the background.
It never seems to interfere with the functioning of my phone so I can’t say I’ve had any issues with it running.
Faceapp offers a ton of morphing features, all you have to do is play around with them.
In the free version, users can change their faces, add smiles, change genders, and change their hair color. If you want more features, you will be expected to upgrade to a paid version of Faceapp.You’re also able to make yourself older, which is my favorite out of all the other filters.
My Experience with Faceapp
I’m not a fan of outlandish apps but Faceapp is one app that I genuinely enjoy using because it allows me to see another version of myself.
It almost feels as if I’m a CIA agent trying to find someone who is years older. Even when filters are added, my face still looks human. I think that is what makes Faceapp such an amazing app because it changes how you look without changing your facial features.
Although it’s not an app that I use every day,I definitely find myself using it whenever I need a laugh. It’s an app that’s entertaining, and almost borderline addictive.
