Emojis and gifts are the best ways to express emotions. However, they aren’t usually very personal. But now, Snapchat is working on a new feature that will turn your face into GIFs. Amazing, Isn’t it?
The company has confirmed to TechCrunch that it’s testing a Cameo feature that inserts your face into a selection of (currently pre-made) GIFs. You just need to take a selfie, choose a generic body type as per your choice, and boom! Your face will animate as if it were you, including mouth movements.
Here’s some images from the new Snapchat Cameo feature.
Looks like it’s only available in France right now but it’s takes an AR version of your face and lets you apply it to a bunch of different activities.
Sort of a loose deep fake for Snap. Kind of. pic.twitter.com/LDReLqGCRV

The company said it was testing the feature in some international markets, including France. It’s not certain when Cameo will reach the masses, but Snap said to expect a worldwide release “soon.”
This new feature will be working as an alternative to the Bitmoji for those who think avatars are too cutesy. It will also give Snapchat a way to stand out among social networks and messaging services at the same time and might give it a source of revenue if it charges for third-party Cameo clips. So, by launching this new feature, Snapchat will be in great advantage.
