I just did it with 2 photos - one came up as 28 and the as 77 - DH came up as 55

We are 39 and 37 respectively

We can't stop laughing - not so funny for some though

AIBU to ask how far out it was for you (or not)

Two photos, taken seconds apart. In the first I was 79 and the second, 34. 😆

ConkerTriumphant Sun 23-Oct-16 21:11:50

Just tried it. I came out as 44 - not bad; I'm 46.

But then it told me I was male!! (I'm not, by the way grin)

Haha I don't have any pics of myself, New phone. It just guessed my ds 8yo as 57 grin. Dread to think what it'd say about me!

Tried three, first 2 were 27, third was 14! I'm 30!

38, am 42.

30- I'll happily take that! I'm 40 and I wouldn't say I look much younger!

DrDreReturns Sun 23-Oct-16 21:14:58

It said I was 34 - I'm 39.
Biometric software is not very accurate - especially facial recognition software, so it doesn't surprise me that this is not very accurate.

I got 24, 36 and 51! I'm 37.

FabulouslyGlamourousFerret Sun 23-Oct-16 21:17:49

Haha ... 17, then 20. I'm a not so youthful looking 43!!

lostoldlogin2 Sun 23-Oct-16 21:17:55

I got 23, 29 and 31 in pictures taken with no make up right now .....I'm 32 so pretty good accuracy

steffibabes Sun 23-Oct-16 21:17:59

32, am 40. The photo was taken recently

SKYTVADDICT Sun 23-Oct-16 21:18:55

Well I got 46 and 31 at different angles (i am 48) and DS got 7 and he is 9 so not too bad for us 😂

TheUnseenAcademic Sun 23-Oct-16 21:19:16

I'm getting anything between 21 and 47. My 7 yo niece is 26.

PickAChew Sun 23-Oct-16 21:19:17

Sixty fucking four. It was a crap selfie, though!

millionsofpeaches Sun 23-Oct-16 21:19:20

Worst thing is the 51 was for the only photo in which I was wearing make up and looking half decent for a night out! Interesting, but obviously not quite there yet technology wise!

TipBoov Sun 23-Oct-16 21:19:55

34 for DH, and he's 31. 20 for me, I'm 29 grin

ajandjjmum Sun 23-Oct-16 21:21:51

I think it's incredibly accurate. grin

DH is given as 52 whilst I'm a youthful 38. (59 and 58 in real life)

YoScienceBitch Sun 23-Oct-16 21:23:32

I got 20 and I'm 22 so not too bad!

Flumplet Sun 23-Oct-16 21:24:22

I tried 3 times with 3 diff pics of me and got - 33, 34 and 33. I'm 33 nearly 34.

BlessYourCottonSocks Sun 23-Oct-16 21:24:26

Tried 3. Came out as 43, 37 and 38 - so reasonably consistent. I am actually 50 and would say I looked ok for my age. No one would mistake me for late 30s however!

Husband came out at 48 - and is 57. Do you think they deliberately knock about a decade off?

Hygellig Sun 23-Oct-16 21:25:14

I think this software needs a lot of improving. I'm 37 and tried it with two recent photos of me. For one it said 55 and one 29!

It said 5 for my daughter, which was a bit more realistic (she's 3), but 20 for my son, who's five.

BikeRunSki Sun 23-Oct-16 21:25:24

I got 73. I am 45 and the photo I used is at least a year old!

Feckitall Sun 23-Oct-16 21:26:04

I came out as 29...I'm 50...I'll accept the flattery...grin

DropZoneOne Sun 23-Oct-16 21:26:06

It knocked 7 years off my age, and that was without make-up.
