Face filters allow users to overlay AR objects and animation onto their faces during a video chat on a desktop, mobile device or web interface. Video face filters are second to none when it comes to real-time engagement, and it’s a great way to add fun to video communication. 

Beauty AR features allows users to automatically enhance their faces in real-time during a video call or streaming by applying skin smoothing, teeth whitening, face morphing and other beautification options. 

  • Virtual Backgrounds

Users can remove and change their background during a video call in real-time. Virtual backgrounds add extra value to apps making video chatting private and fun, especially nowadays when many people work from home. It also allows users to express themselves creatively choosing fun custom backgrounds or enjoy privacy when video chatting with strangers.

  • Avatars


The Avatar technology builds up a 3D model of the face and matches it with user facial expressions in real-time. Integrated with video communication apps, avatars can talk, smile and communicate almost like real humans. So, users can still communicate privately yet feel human. 

From social and gaming to retail, enterprise and education — communication solutions vary based on the target audience and use case. In enterprise, people tend to seek comfort and privacy, therefore finding background removal or beautification a perfect fit. In social networking, we seek for self-expression, and face filters are second to none when it comes to adding engagement and fun. Our SDK includes the most extensive Face AR technologies giving people a new, better way to connect digitally. “ — Vadim Nekhai, Managing Director at Banuba.
