More apps that change gender

In addition to FaceApp, there are other apps that promise to transform the user's photo into the opposite gender. We list other good free options that turn people into men or women in different ways.

1. Snapchat

Snapchat pioneered augmented reality filters and offers gender-specific options. To use it, you must have an account on the social network.

Then just swipe to find the My Twin filter, fit your face into the frame and shoot or shoot. The result can be published on the platform itself or saved on mobile and shared in other applications.

  • Snapchat (free): Android | iOS

2. Face Changer 2

Face Changer 2 allows you to change your gender by merging your image with that of a person of the opposite sex. For this, you can use a photo from your phone's gallery or any of the images available in the app.

The results are not as realistic and there is no option for adjustments. Therefore, the app is a good choice for those who want something funny for their friends to laugh about.


  • Face Changer 2 (free, with in-app purchases): Android

3. MSQRD

MSQRD is yet another app option with augmented reality filters that allow you to take photos or videos in real time. While it doesn't offer a specific gender change feature, there are some mustache and beard options for women to have fun with.


The experience is the same experienced in Facebook stories and Facebook Messenger chat. The app was purchased by the social network and the technology began to be used on the company's platforms.

  • MSQRD (free): Android

4. MixBooth

MixBooth works in a similar way to Face Changer 2. Just add your photo and indicate where the eyes, nose and chin are. Then you can include the other person's image or use one already available in the app.

The app automatically blends the two photos and offers no editing options. The results may not be the most realistic, but they are quite funny.

  • MixBooth (free, with in-app purchases): Android | iOS
