Create your own sticker pack in Google Allo, using your selfie

At one point in your life, you’ve taken at least one selfie but what if you could use your selfie as a sticker pack.

With the latest update for Google Allo, you can take a selfie and using general-purpose neural networks a sticker pack with your likeness will be created. The algorithm that Google created, can not only recognize things like colour values but also visual stuff in your background.

 

Google used human examples, illustrations by artists such as Lamar Abrams as well as actual humans that would rate to help train the network. There are more than 563 quadrillion potential combinations, so there’s a good change that one will look like you. Even if it’s not perfect, you can slightly alter it.

The first set of selfie sticker packs focuses on speaking “to your sarcastic side” while future ones could be more cute for sincere movements. As per usual, the update is currently (slowly) rolling out on Allo for Android  and coming soon to Allo on iOS.

If you’re impatient (like I am), Android Police has the APK file available on their sister site, APKMirror. But you may need to clear the app’s cache and force-close the app before being able to use the new feature.
