Microsoft Selfie app now available on Android

Microsoft Selfie app finally makes it to the Android platform, almost a year after it was released for iOS.

To begin with, the Selfie app was aimed at improving selfies with the use of machine learning. So, once you open the app, you will find options such as choose a photo from the gallery or take a photo. You will then find filters to choose from, just like you see in Instagram. The Selfie app then evaluates age, gender, skin tone, lighting and other variables that help enhance the photo.

It is capable of adjusting the exposure, colour balance as well as lighting that eventually help improve the image quality of your selfies. Besides, a user can also choose from colour themes for the images.

Over the past year, Microsoft has made its keen interest in AI and machine learning quite clear. Recently, the company said it will create a new artificial intelligence unit, as the company pushes deeper into the fast-growing field.

You can download the Selfie app for Android from the Google Play store, and Microsoft has also ensured users get to enhance their photos via the web app.

It is available for free, and requires a device that runs Android 4.1 and above.
