DENVER (KDVR) – Another photo app is taking social media by storm. It’s called “Voilà.”

Voilà is an app that uses artificial intelligence to turn your photo into different 3D cartoon versions.

The app is pretty simple to use. It allows you to select a photo from your photo library or to take one directly from the app. After you choose the photo, it takes only a few seconds of waiting before it turns your picture into a work of art.

In 2019 FaceApp, another AI app that allowed users to change their appearance to be older or younger, went viral and many people were concerned about the safety of the technology.

People raised fears on Twitter and other social media sites that, on iPhones, FaceApp would be able to see and upload all your photos, including screenshots with sensitive financial or health information or photos of kids with the names of their schools in the background, though that wasn’t actually true.

So far, no apparent safety concerns associated with Voilà have been raised.

You can find the free app in the app store by searching “Voilà AI Artist.”
