This is what YouTubers look like using FaceApp's old person filter

A new app that tells you what you'll look like when you're old is being used on photos of YouTubers.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or without a working WiFi connection), you’ve probably noticed the FaceApp challenge sweeping the internet over the past few days which tells you what you could look like in many decades from now.
The app’s new ‘old person’ filter uses AI on a photo of yourself (or someone else) and tells you what you might look like in your old age. It’s not the first time an app has used filters to morph our face into a new identity either - Snapchat has previously released a baby filter and a gender-swapping filter.
FaceApp first came out in 2017 and offers a range of filters and editing effects, but its new ‘old’ filter is especially amusing because of how accurate it is. And, of course, alongside trying out the filter on ourselves and our friends, YouTubers have been getting the ‘old person’ filter treatment too.
