Face swap apps can be entertaining or creepy depending on who you ask, but the photos they generate will always elicit some sort of reaction. It can be a cringe, a look of disbelief, and even a chuckle or a full-blown laugh.
It can also cause controversy, just like how a Chinese face swap app called Zao received criticism back in 2019. Instances like that aside, face swap apps can be used all in good fun, especially when they are created and used responsibly.
