Snapchat is launching a deep fake Cameo feature which will be used to edit your face into GIFS. Snapchat will use the face tracking feature to launch this.
This new cameo feature will be available from 18th December.
Snapchat has made a 150 short looping video clips with sound that you can choose from, with new ones coming each week. They can show you flaunting your cash, dancing like crazy, falling asleep and tons more. Snapchat will then stretch and move your selfie to create different facial reactions that Cameo can apply to actors’ heads in the videos.
How to use Snapchat Cameo Feature
To use this feature, you’ll first take a selfie which will be used a base for the GIF. Then you’ll select a loop from more than 150 loops that’ll be available with the launch. Once you select a loop, Snapchat will use your face by stretching and move your selfie to create facial expressions as reported by TechCrunch.
Snapchat deep fake Cameo is a feature by the company to keep itself apart from other apps like Instagram and WhatsApp.
The feature will roll out for iOS and Android users on December 18th. It is currently in testing for select users internationally.
