FaceApp has gone viral in the past few weeks, as everyone (including celebrities, politicians, and your two-year old) are using it to see what they will look like when they are old. It is available for Android smartphone and tablets for free and can be installed on your PC/Mac devices using an Android emulator.
What is FaceApp? Use FaceApp To Make Yourself Look Old Before Your Time
Have you seen your friends, family, influencers and celebrities posting photos of themselves looking old? They are almost all using the “old” filter in the android app that has been around for a while called FaceApp.

Download FaceApp for PC and/or Download FaceApp for Mac
In order to install and use Android apps like FaceApp on PC/Windows or Mac operating systems, you need to have an Android emulator installed.
Presently, there are plenty of Android emulator options available for both Windows and Mac operating systems. We recommend to first give Nox Player a try to install FaceApp for Windows.
You can also try BlueStacks if Nox doesn’t work for you (also free).
How to Use FaceApp for Windows 7/8/10 and/or Mac
Apart from its features, FaceApp for Mac and FaceApp for PC/Windows do all the work of adding the grey hair, wrinkly, droopy skin or making your face look gross and trendy with a single click. Just take the selfie, then select “age” and then “old” in the filters.
The popular app can also do lots more, including adding smiles, changing hairstyles, and making yourself look younger (but who wants to look GOOD right now).

FaceApp has gone viral in recent weeks as celebrities such as Drake and the Jonas Brothers have been posting aged photos, while others have been using it on promotional photos for favorite movies, such as the Star Wars series:

The app went viral back in 2017 when it made “ethnicity” filters available and people freaked out about it (the ethnicity filter was subsequently removed by FaceApp).
I’ll spare you the technology, but it uses artificial intelligence to do the job (which is awesome). But there are some concerns about it. (And I’ll spare you the politics, but there is some buzz that the app is owned by a company from Russia and the United States government is all concerned about privacy issues stemming from Russian access to the photo roll on your smartphone.)
What do you think of FaceApp? Did you try it? We’d love to know about your experience, leave us a post in the comments.
