Reality stars, singers, and public figures are aging all over the internet thanks to Faceapp.
The smartphone app, which has been around since 2017, has gone viral again after adding some new features that allow users to see what they will look like when they get older. According to CNN, the app uses neural networks – or artificial intelligence – to edit photos. The Russian app also has the ability to make users look younger, swap genders, change hair colors, and even add a full face of makeup. Needless to say, celebrities and internet users are eating this up.
The Jonas Brothers gave us a sneak peek of what the trio will look like in the year 3000.
Drake showed what he looks like as an older, and sexier, silver fox.
HGTV Property Brothers stars Jonathan and Drew Scott gave a glimse of what they might look like after they’ve retired from the real estate and home improvement industry.
Sam Smith showed us a future where he ages like fine wine.
Actor Colin Hanks definitely won the internet though by posting a pic of his dad, Tom Hanks, on his Instagram story with the caption, “The FaceApp is a rip off. This is what I got.”
Although the app is fun, there is concern on how safe it is. New York Post mentions when the app is downloaded, users grant it permission to access the photo gallery on their phones. The small print on the app also gives it the right to reproduce, modify, and publish any of the images that users are processing through the app. So basically, users can and should have fun with the app, but they should also be cautious of what the app can do.
