In 2013, Oxford Dictionary proclaimed `selfie` to be the word of the year and rightly so, after all the word came into mainstream usage almost instantly after front cameras on smartphones improved. Though smartphone manufacturers are doing their bit to improve the front cameras on smartphones.
Microsoft wants to improve the quality of these images by machine intelligence, and has now brought its Selfie app to Android.
Almost a year after being released on iOS, Microsoft Selfie has now been launched for the Android platform via Google Play. The app by Microsoft essentially improves the quality of images taken by your front camera using machine vision tech.
"Backed by computer vision technology, Microsoft Selfie intelligently considers age, gender, skin tone, lighting and many other variables - all with one click. Users can transform average photos into enhanced, natural photos in seconds," the company says in its product description on Google Play.
The Microsoft Selfie app adjusts the exposure, colour balance, and lighting among other things to improve the quality of your selfies and can be used to remove the slight imperfections by just one tap. Users also get the option of choosing the colour theme of their images in the app.
Just like on App Store, the app is available for free on Android and can be downloaded from Google Play
