AI-driven deepfake apps are becoming the next big trend. Just after MyHeritage, the app that animates old photos went viral, we have yet another AI-based deepfake video creation platform called ‘Wombo’ doing the rounds on the internet. Unlike other deepfake apps, however, Wombo lets you transform yourself or others into a singing face.
Create Hilarious Singing Faces with Wombo
All you have to do is take a selfie, pick one of the preloaded songs, and wait for Wombo to do its thing. There are a total of 15 songs to choose from. After a while, the app will churn out a video of you singing the song you chose.
When you first open the app, you get a camera UI to take a selfie. You can alternatively pick an image from your gallery. After choosing the image, you can crop the image so that the output looks better.
To test Wombo out, I tried combining two of the internet’s favorites – Elon Musk and Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. Since the app has already gone viral, the processing is slow at the moment and I ended up rage-quitting the app after a few minutes. However, there’s a premium version that costs Rs. 410 ($4.49) a month or Rs. 2,600 ($29.99) per year without ads and faster processing capabilities.
But hey, that doesn’t mean you are missing out on quality Wombo content. That isn’t happening, not on my watch. Here are a few Wombo clips for your viewing pleasure:
