Snapchat's face swap finds new ways to creep us outYou can now swap faces with any saved image - even your own selfie. Meanwhile, apps like Snapchat and go90 are launching a new breed of television show.
You can now face swap with your own face? Thanks for the nightmares, Snapchat. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET update. The face swapping trend has a new twist. On snapchat you can now face swap with any existing image in your phones camara role. You used to need to have your friend nearby to do the second person, but now it can be any photo you saved. As long as it looks like a face, it can be even an animal or a cartoon. But I must warn you, face swapping with your own selfie is the stuff of nightmares. Perhaps face swapping with yourself is a sign that the trend is dead. But Snapchat did actually kill something else, paid replays. Every snap you get can be replayed once, but you can no longer buy extra replays for $1. It appears Snapchat wants to focus on making money through advertisements and other content deals. So what sort of content you ask? Well, MTV is now bringing back its old show 'Cribs' just for Snap Chat. That's according to a report from Variety. The show MTV 'Cribs' launched in 2000, and it gave viewers a tour of celebrity homes. This new Snap Chat version of the show will do the same. It launches on June and it airs once a week. Now, there are actually few other shows being made just for mobile apps. Some original content Verizon's go90 streaming TV app. There's one comedy called Replay, it's about an aspiring DJ that goes to the same day, Over and over again. It's similar to ground hog day and there's a show on Go90 called Relationship Status. This show explores modern love and each episode is 11 minutes long but if you rather not get your television in a chat app designed for millennials, you could still find a show on the old fashion live TV but Google helps you find it in a new way. You just search for a show in Google It will pull up listings of when the show is airing and on what channels you can find it. It also will tell you what streaming services offer the shows. You may not see it right a way it is coming soon. That's all for this tech news round up and you can head to cnet.com for the latest, and follow me on Twitter.
