Microsoft Selfie is the company’s photo-editing app, which is now finally available on Android OS. The app debuted on the iOS Store in December 2015 and has garnered quite a few rave reviews. Microsoft has now brought all the features of Selfie to the Google Play Store.
Microsoft Selfie app for Android
Quite apparent from its name, Microsoft Selfie is an app that lets you modify and edit your Selfies, apart from other photos in your gallery. Selfie also lets you take a photo with the front-facing camera on your phone and beautify it in one click. Microsoft says that the app “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 app offers you these two options to edit your images – Click on the app or Select a particular image from your gallery. On first glance, the filter appears similar to what Instagram offers, but the additional simplicity of Microsoft Selfie gives it a convenience brownie point. There are currently just around 12 filters in all, but you’ll have to manage all the editing with what you’ve got.
Selfie also has a web address, wherein you can edit your images via your computer. This web address takes you to a minimalistic webpage that lets you choose photos from your PC and helps apply relevant filters within seconds. But the website offers very few options to customize. You can’t crop or rotate the image, and can’t even change the filter which the website applies to your image.
If you are interested in trying out Microsoft’s experiment with the Selfie, you can download the Android app from the Google Play Store, and the Microsoft Selfie app for iPhone from the Apple App Store.
