Microsoft wants to put your face in some strange places

Microsoft’s Face Swap, available on the Google Play Store, gives users the ability to “search and transport” themselves “into fun & inspirational scenes.”

Microsoft’s app isn’t pioneering in the least for its ability to take a selfie and place it in another location or on another person. The free to use and ad-free app does, however, allow users to search for places to stick their mugs.

To use the app, just snap a selfie in good lighting using Face Swap then start swapping through preset categories until you find something you like – then, just save and share.

CHOOSE A FACE:
  • Take a great selfie with our special face swap camera with real time hints and instructions
  • Pick an image from your camera roll
  • Search for a face on the web
  • You can swap any face into any picture.
CHOOSE A SCENE:
  • Pick an image with faces from your camera roll
  • Choose a scene from one of our fun categories
  • Search for an image with Bing powered image search
  • Search for trending faces and scenes!
Using a sophisticated face swap engine, we:
  • Match skin tone (or any tone…Try a stone statue!)
  • Automatically find faces in images and place your swap
  • Match lighting conditions
  • Match head turns and tilts
  • Process and place multiple faces in a single scene

Whether you want to share a picture of you as a rock star or infantry commander Microsoft’s Face Swap can take you there.
