You Can Now Create Stickers Out of a Selfie in Google Allo

Google really likes stickers. And it feels like the only place they present their interest is in their slowly-failing messaging app Allo. But despite its drop on the Play Store Top 500 charts and low user database, Google isn’t giving up and today announced a new way to create stickers: with your face.

Now in Allo for Android and soon on iOS, you can take a selfie and Allo will generate a sticker pack based on your facial features. As detailed in a blog post, a whole bunch of machine learning and AI was poured into this feature to prevent what’s called the “uncanny valley” and give life to stickers representing all different nationalities, ages, and genders. I won’t go into too much detail here, but you can check out what Google said here.

As aforementioned, Allo for Android is getting the feature now, with those on iOS to get it soon.
