Google has allowed us to use custom avatars to share stickers from their Gboard keyboard, but the company has taken a new step to give us even more personalized stickers.
With Bitmoji we could choose between different functions to configure an avatar that looked like us, but despite the many options it was not entirely accurate and sometimes even impersonal.
Now Google wants much more to refine the similarity between us and our avatar, and for that it puts the use of artificial intelligence into practice, how? Well, by facial recognition.
Within Gboard, in the option of the stickers, we will find a new icon, but patience because it has not yet reached all users.
Once we open it, it asks us to make a selfie, to collect all possible information about our face: hair color, skin, eyes, size of the mouth, nose, etc …
Once the process is complete, we have an abundance of stickers to use whenever we want, with multiple moods and scenes, just like with Bitmoji, but much more on us.
Google originally introduced this feature last year as & # 39; selfie stickers & # 39; in its Allo application, but now it seems to be aimed at making it profitable in a much more common use tool such as the keyboard.
