Photo Lab fever divides Africa into two opposing camps! 🌍🔥⚔️

It’s been many times that Photo Lab has gone crazy viral in different countries. And it’s interesting to note that each country set up its own trends and ways of using the app. This time the Photo Lab fever has taken over Africa! 🌍

It was late in August that Photo Lab started going viral in Benin 🇧🇯 and Republic of the Congo 🇨🇩. The app soared into No. 1 Overall position on the App Store leaving behind TikTok, Snapchat and Facebook. In early September the legendary app became #1 Overall in many more African countries including Sierra Leone 🇸🇱, Algeria 🇩🇿, Rwanda 🇷🇼 and Zambia 🇿🇲.

Me, Toon! How to look like a cartoon character in seconds.

What would it be like to look in the mirror, but… in a cartoon world? No matter how fantastic it may sound, AI makes this fantasy a reality!

If you are looking for something fancier and whimsier than just mainstream photo filters, you’ll love the Toon Mirror tab inside the ToonMe app.

The tab offers a selection of several toony styles. Сhoose one and get ready for teleportation into the AI fantasy world! Please don’t expect the result to look like an exact copy of your personality. Instead, you’ll get an AI’s vision of how you сould possibly look if you were in a cartoon movie. Your hair and eyes can change color, your face features can become super dolly-ish. AI can even change your clothes or make you look like an antique statue. But this is what makes the game even more interesting!

An AI trend that made our users look hot and took us to the top! 🔥🚀

Active lifestyle full of sport and exercise is all the trend now. And it’s funny how it affected trends inside the Photo Lab and ToonMe apps. We are talking about the ‘Hot Body’ trend, which was totally inspired by our users!

So, let’s get back to how it all started. Back in May we launched the Barbify feature in ToonMe and Photo Lab. The tab contained AI-driven toony filters that made people look immaculately cute and doll-like. However, some people started using the filters in their own way 😆
