Mobile AR app Octi evolves into social network via facial recognition Tech «Mobile AR News :: Next Reality



In a world full of augmented reality camera effects apps, an app goes in a more social direction.

On Tuesday, a restarted version of Octi (which debuted for the first time in 2018) was released in the Apple App Store. Now, instead of just adding AR effects to photos & videos, the app uses face recognition to identify users and anchor augmented reality content around them in the form of a virtual belt .

For some, the idea of ​​face recognition was fused with an AR social network that can cause chills, but Octi has taken steps to prevent unwanted snooping around.

With the free app, a person cannot just walk on the street and scan strangers to discover their personal profile. Instead, users must accept a friend request to allow them to join their AR circle. If someone is not recognized by Octi, users can send him an invitation to the network.
