Giggles. Chuckles. Some just burst out laughing. These reactions are common to every user test we performed during the production of Face Swap, a mobile app available for Android and iOS. Face Swap began as an exploration of facial recognition technology developed by Microsoft Research. When we applied this technology to merge one face onto another, the results were compelling. Face swapping is not a new idea, but we bring surprise and delight with automatic face swap technology and powerful Bing image search. Once you start searching and face swapping, you won’t want to stop.
Face Swap was developed from conception to app store over 5 months by the small incubation team within the Bing organization. The engineering team included developers in remote locations, allowing us to work around the clock and iterate rapidly on the product. We employed continuous user research studies with external participants, which helped us build a product that is easy and intuitive to use. We look forward to users’ feedback from our launch and we plan to actively respond to them and add several new features in the coming months.
