Microsoft’s new app lets you check how identical two humans are


Back in June, a Microsoft employee created a website called TwinsOrNot which allows users to check how identical two humans are. The website is based on Microsoft’s Face Recognition API – which was announced back in Build 2015 — meaning that the website uses the same technology as Microsoft’s HowOld website.

Last week, Microsoft quietly launched the TwinsOrNot app for Windows Phone, which allows you to check how identical two humans are just like the website. Here’s the app’s description:

Often hear you look just like someone else? Or you just know you look like a certain celebrity? Now you can just ask #TwinsOrNotRobot# and find out for yourself! TwinsOrNot is powered by Microsoft Project Oxford, a beta version of a set of APIs, SDKS and services freely available to developers to make their applications more intelligent and engaging. The site lets you select any two photos, compare the faces and provides you with a degree of likeness. We’ve now refreshed the site and provided better integration with Bing to make it easier to find images on the web. If people don’t opt-in to help us improve, the images are kept only for the duration of the session.

Here are some screenshots of the app:

The app is available for free on the Windows Phone Store and you can grab it from here!
