In fact, the program was developed back in 2017 by Russian specialists from the Wireless Lab company, but over the two and a half years of its existence, its functionality has changed significantly. Many of the features of the neural network underlying FaceApp filters have been criticized for racism (some effects changed skin color), homophobia (giving faces the features of the opposite sex), etc. At the moment, the application’s set of tools is also quite wide, but the most popular of them has become the function of virtual aging of the character in the picture.

To share or save a photo in the device gallery, click the button Share and select the required service.
Please note that the application immediately after launch warns the user that the pictures will be uploaded to the cloud service for applying effects.
