This app launched last week by Yaroslav Goncharov, a former Microsoft engineer. In this app, Goncharov has also added features that can show a smile or other expressions in any photo with the help of Artificial Intelligence.

The founder of FaceApp, Yaroslav Goncharov, is quoted as saying, "If your picture appears in the second gender, then you have to work hard and spend time with it. But, the FaceApp that I have prepared will do the same work instantaneously."
