Ever wanted to know how you’ll age? There’s an app for that.

Launched in 2017, FaceApp isn’t necessarily new. But it’s making headlines again because the app has gotten good — like, eerily good — at showing users what they’ll look like when they age.

It’s scary, so use at your own risk. Or, take a spin through Twitter or Instagram to see how others have turned out years into the future.

Basketball star Dwyane Wade gave it a go — or, in this case, retired basketball star?

Tottenham Hotspurs, a soccer team in England, made a whole Twitter thread of their players with FaceApp. It’s amazing.

And rapper Drake got in on the aging action (though it isn’t clear if he used FaceApp to do it).

Even the Jonas Brothers got in on the trend.

The app uses neural networks — a type of artificial intelligence — to edit the photos.

And it can do more than just age you. The app can literally put a smile on your face, make you look younger, or swap your gender, too.
