There's no hiding that face swapping is a new fad these days, especially on the popular mobile app, Snapchat. Well, it turns out that Microsoft too is now entering the game, as Microsoft Garage is releasing a new Face Swap app for Android which will search and transport you into fun and inspiration scenes (via AndroidPolice.com)
Unlike the face swap feature on Snapchat, Microsoft's app allows you to swap our your face, and then choose a scene from your camera roll or search for web image (powered by Bing search) to place it in. Categories for face swaps are frequently updated, and it's all powered by facial recognition software developed by Microsoft Research. A few of the other app features can be seen below.
