Snap Chat introduces “Face App” Lens to let you swing to future

This year, Face App filter was in news. For both good and bad reasons. FAce App had a filter that could make you Old and young, in the photos. But later it was revealed that the Russian-developed selfie-editing app could sell the photos to third parties. They had mentioned it in their privacy policy. And now Snap Chat has introduced their Aging filter.

The company is calling this filter “The time machine”. The filter allows you to change the appearance of your age simply by dragging a slider across your screen. The Time Machine lens uses advanced machine learning and training models to change your facial features and make you look young or old in a real-time. The lens works on both the selfie camera and the rear camera. The filter has been released for both iOS and Android.  Apart from the live filter, The time Machine lens works with post-capture functionality. This means that it will apply the change once you’ve captured the image. Snapchat introduced Lenses as a feature to let users add new effects to their photos and videos back in 2015.
