Deepfakes allow you to manipulate videos and GIFs. The technology has become so easy to use that you can now create deepfakes right on your phone. That’s right: now you can easily fit into a meme.

It’s also an impressive demonstration of how easy it is to create a deepfake. Swapping a celebrity face for a viral GIF and swapping it out for yours is now within easy reach.

With a deepfake app, you can edit faces in videos and GIFs without spoiling other original elements. Here are some of the best if you want to try it out.

Deepfake Yourself in GIF with Reface

With Reface, you can replace faces in just about any GIF. All you need to do is upload a photo from your gallery or take a new selfie with your phone. The app will automatically detect your face and the deepfake in the selected GIF.

What sets Reface apart is that it also animates your face to match the expressions in the original GIF, so it doesn’t look out of place.

Reface also doesn’t limit you to a handful of optimized items. You can search for keywords to grab any GIF from the web (as long as it has a human face) and then edit it.

You can also process and store multiple faces. This allows you to reuse them without having to import them each time. Since Reface recognizes all faces in a GIF, you can also set a separate one for each of them.

Reface is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Most of its features are free, but you’ll have to pay for the Pro membership if you don’t want a watermark on your results.

Jiggy is another app that lets you enjoy deepfake technology for fun. It has dozens of wacky dance videos that you can stick your face (or someone else’s face on) by uploading a photo. Jiggy also scans your upper body so that it can be accurately layered on the dancing figure.

The app also personalizes the output with whatever the person is wearing in the image. Like Reface, Jiggy also animates your facial expressions and movements.

You can download Jiggy to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device free. If you want more dance models and videos without watermark, you will have to upgrade to a premium membership.

Impersonate a celebrity in Impressions

The aptly titled Impressions app lets you digitally spoof celebrities. It incorporates the faces of people like Barack Obama, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jennifer Aniston in your recorded videos.

After choosing a celebrity, simply record a video or import a video from your phone’s library. In a few minutes, Impressions will be producing a deepfake version of the video featuring the celebrity’s face instead of your own.

Impressions also includes a catalog of audio recordings of popular movie and TV scenes that you can lip-sync to.

Unlike other apps on our list, Impressions uploads and processes your videos to its servers, so it requires an internet connection. Fortunately, you can ask them to delete your data from their servers in the app settings.

Impressions also has a Like TikTok social network where you can share your deepfakes and browse other people’s posts.

At the time of this writing, Impressions is only available on iPhone or iPad, but the company says an Android version will be released soon. It’s free as long as you agree to a watermark on your clips; otherwise, it’s $ 4.99 per week.
