Google has a new tool that turns a filter into a cute avatar.
You can find it in Allo.
A chat app that Google launched last year.
It scans your face using the front camera then neuro networks and computer visions Having features like hair color and face shape.
The app matches features to illustrations and turns you into a cartoon.
Make your avatar by opening a new chat, then tap the emoji icon.
You'll either see a sticker that says create your own, or scroll across to the three dots at the end of the sticker row.
Enter the sticker gallery.
And she's turned her selfie into stickers.
Open the camera.
And then put your face in the frame.
Make sure to position your eyes in the glasses.
Snap a selfie.
And you're a cartoon.
If you don't like your hair, or eyes, or beard, go in and customize.
Once you're happy hit save to see the cartoon.
For now you can only send these in aloe, but there is a share button that lets you send out a cartoon collage.
But how does it compare to other avatar apps?
This is what Google Google thinks I look like.
And this is what I think I look like in Bitmoji.
The difference is that Bitmoji doesn't use your actual selfie to get a baseline image.
You have to make it yourself from scratch.
Allo's selfie feature is out for Android and coming soon to iOS.
